Third OVI Reduced to Minor Misdemeanor

Traveling home from, Kentucky, our client was pulled over in Portsmouth for a minor traffic violation. While on business in Kentucky, he had consumed several light beers before making his trip back to Columbus. Late at night and smelling like alcohol, he was extremely nervous about what was about to happen.

The officer, expectedly, demanded that our client step out of the vehicle to perform field sobriety tests. Having been through this twice before, our client knew the odds were against him but agreed to perform the tests. He was arrested and asked to submit to a breath test. Having been advised to never take a breath test, he politely declined and was charged with an OVI and for refusing to submit to a chemical test with a prior conviction.

Facing mandatory jail time and a three-year license suspension for his third OVI, he called our firm for help. Chase Mallory entered a not guilty plea and proceeded to litigate the case. Five months in, on the morning of the suppression hearing, the prosecutor agreed to amend the third OVI charge to a minor misdemeanor and terminate the license suspension upon completion of a driver intervention program.
