Three 1st Degree Misdemeanor Charges Reduced to 1 Non-Alcohol Traffic Offense

Columbus criminal defense attorneys were recently contacted by a 32-year-old man arrested and charged with 1st degree misdemeanor OVI, 1st degree misdemeanor hit and run and failure to control a vehicle. Our client was driving home after work when his car hit a curb running onto the side of the street and into a fence. Being disoriented our client walked up the street and sat down. Police were called to the scene and noticing our clients disorientation request for him to take a field sobriety test along with a breathalyzer. Our client refused any further questioning without the presence of his attorney and is arrested and charged with 1st Degree Misdemeanor OVI, 1st Degree Misdemeanor Hit and Run and 1st Degree Failure to Control a Vehicle.

Our client immediately retained the experienced services of Columbus criminal defense attorneys who immediately represent our client in all his court hearings. Facing a mandatory 1-year license suspension with the first 30-days as hard time suspension, up to 6 months in jail and over $1,000 in fines, our attorneys defended our against each of these charges. After representing our client through five court appearances our attorneys successfully negotiated the dismissal of the 1st degree misdemeanor OVI charge, the 1st degree misdemeanor Hit and Run charge, and had the 1st degree failure to control a vehicle charge reduced to reckless operation of a vehicle, a non-alcohol related charge.
