Significant Jail Time Avoided on Fourth Lifetime OVI / DUI Charge

A young lady with three prior lifetime OVI / DUI convictions made an extremely poor choice recently. She decided to drink and then get behind the wheel. This resulted in her crashing her SUV into a pole. A Columbus Police Department officer observed the young lady get out of her vehicle and begin walking toward a nearby apartment complex. The officer got out of his cruiser to go speak with her and noted a strong smell of an alcoholic beverage. After speaking with her, she was asked to perform the roadside field sobriety tests. She refused. She was then placed under arrest for a fourth lifetime OVI / DUI  offense. She was asked to submit to a breath test and refused. Her case was then scheduled for arraignment in Franklin County Municipal Court.

Because she was charged under the Columbus City Traffic Code a lifetime look back period was used. If convicted for a fourth lifetime OVI / DUI, she was facing a very serious amount of jail time. She was beyond scared. Under these circumstances, she contacted attorney Ben Luftman. After meeting with attorney Luftman, the Columbus Criminal Defense team was hired to keep her from doing a lot of time in jail.

Attorney Luftman and attorney Dan Sabol represented our client. There were potential evidentiary issues with the case and after six court dates, attorney Sabol was able to negotiate a resolution that significantly reduced the jail time our client was facing for her fourth lifetime OVI / DUI. Additionally, attorney Sabol was able to negotiate her ability to serve the jail time at a private facility of her choosing.
