Third OVI / DUI Offense in 6 Years - Not Guilty Verdict at Trial

Our client was pulled over in Licking County after committing several marked lanes violations near a local bar. The arresting officer initiated a traffic stop on the suspicion that our client was intoxicated. After smelling the odor of alcohol, the officer demanded our client exit the vehicle to continue his alcohol investigation and soon thereafter made the arrest.

This would have constituted the individual’s third OVI / DUI offense in six years, and during the course of the case, the prosecutor demanded a plea to the charge. The minimum jail sentence for the offense was sixty (60) days in jail and the court indicated a sentence closer to six months was more likely. Attorney Chase Mallory weighed the evidence with our client and she made an informed decision to have a trial. Despite the cruiser video evidence and evidence of our client’s prior offenses, the government was unable to convict our client. She was found not guilty at trial and avoided another OVI conviction and was able to save her career by avoiding jail time.
