Third OVI Conviction Avoided

After attending a concert, our client was pulling out of an OSU parking garage when he noticed the red and blue flashing lights of a police cruiser.  Unbeknownst to him, when he pulled out of the garage he had not turned his headlights on.  After a short while, he pulled over and became subject to an alcohol investigation when the police officer saw several open cans of beer and bottles of liquor in the car.

After being arrested and charged with what would be his third OVI, he contacted our office and explained his concerns because of his prior OVIs.  Chase Mallory took the lead on the case and entered a not guilty plea immediately.

After pretrial, the prosecutor had offered to amend the charge to a reduced physical control violation.  Chase Mallory and our client discussed the offer and ultimately rejected the offer considering the evidence.  The matter was set for a suppression hearing and then jury trial.  The day of jury trial, the prosecutor agreed to amend the charge to a reckless operation and terminate the license suspension for the refusal.  Our client accepted the offer and avoided a third OVI conviction, jail time and license suspension.
