Cincinnati DUI Reduced to Reckless Op

Category: Criminal Defense

We recently assisted a young graduate in Hamilton County, when a Cincinnati DUI put his new career at risk.

After a night out, our client was pulled over for suspected impaired driving. He submitted to a breath test, which showed him to be well over the legal limit. This led to him being charged with OVI and an initial license suspension.

As a new employee in the financial industry, our client was nervous about the effect a suspension would have on his career. Attorney Groene acted quickly to get him driving privileges and began reviewing the case.

We found multiple discrepancies in how the field sobriety tests and breath tests were conducted and presented our findings to the prosecution. After filing a motion to suppress the improper evidence against our client, the prosecution agreed to reduce the charges to reckless operation of a vehicle.

This kept a DUI off the young man’s record and after completing a driver intervention program, he could retain his license and saw no negative consequences at work.

Not Guilty Verdict in Uber Driver Assault Case

Category: Assault and Battery

When an Uber driver accused a woman in Hamilton County of assault, attorney Brad Groen worked to protect her.

Aside from the normal penalties, the woman had a federal job and any crime involving violence would have severe ramifications on her career. A conviction could even lead to termination.

Attorney Brad Groene examined the evidence and presented a dashcam video that clearly contradicted the Uber driver’s allegations. The prosecutor took a firm stance, and the matter went to trial.

By presenting our client’s lack of any prior criminal record and the video of what actually happened, the judge quickly issued a not guilty verdict. This outcome protected the woman’s job, her record, and gave her the option to completely expunge the charge.

Not Guilty Verdict in Butler County Professor’s Trial

Category: Assault and Battery

We recently helped a woman in Butler County when criminal charges jeopardized her record, reputation, and career.

Our client was a professor at Miami University and decided to ship some documents at her local UPS store. While in line, she got into an argument with another female customer.

Apparently, things got heated, and the other customer alleged that our client threatened to kill her. This led to the police charging her with criminal menacing. While our client admitted to arguing with the woman, she adamantly denied making any violent threat.

This, unfortunately, led to some unfavorable press coverage and trouble with her job. But, our client wanted to prove her innocence. As a result, we took the case to trial and presented evidence and testimony about the incident.

After a trial that lasted only a few hours, the judge found our client not guilty. This preserved her reputation, kept her record free of a criminal conviction, and made her eligible to have the entire incident expunged.

Sex Crime Dismissed in Hamilton County

Category: Criminal Defense

Our client was a middle-aged man in Hamilton County, Ohio, who found himself charged with a sex crime.

After a night of drinking, a neighbor made criminal, sexual allegations against our client. Despite wholeheartedly denying any wrongdoing, he was arrested and charged with gross sexual imposition.

While this is a misdemeanor, sexual imposition carries potential jail time and more seriously, a conviction means mandatory registration as a sex offender.

With considerable experience in sexual offense cases, attorney Brad Groene began negotiating on his client’s behalf. After a few court appearances, attorney Groene presented an argument that challenged the reliability of the prosecution’s witness. By pointing out these inconsistencies, we ultimately had the case completely dismissed.

Without a possible sex crime conviction and having to register as a sex offender hanging over his head, our client was very happy to put this behind him and move on with his life.

Felony Drug Possession Dismissed in Preble County

Category: Criminal Defense

In Preble County Ohio, a male client was recently charged with a fifth-degree felony for drug possession. He had a minimal record, but the prosecution was unwilling to negotiate for reduction. The only options were to plead guilty or apply for treatment in lieu of conviction. He was unable to do treatment in lieu because he was an over the road truck driver. After a few pretrial hearings, attorney Brad Groene filed a Brady Motion. It became clear that the arresting officer was facing disciplinary action for being untruthful. After exhaustive negotiation, attorney Groene secured a complete dismissal of the felony possession of drugs charge. He was very pleased with this result and was able to continue working uninterrupted.

Case Dismissed for Client Who Left the Scene of an Accident in Hamilton County

Category: Criminal Defense

A Hamilton man in his early 30s went out one evening and made a mistake when he hit a vehicle and left the scene of an accident. Leaving the scene of an accident is a misdemeanor of the first degree in Ohio. If convicted of this offense, the man faced up to six months in jail, a $1,000 fine, and a mandatory six-month license suspension, so he knew he needed the help of a skilled Cincinnati traffic lawyer to help him with his case. This is what brought him to Luftman, Heck & Associates.

The client and attorney Brad Groene did not dispute the fact that the client left the scene of the accident. After two court hearings, during which attorney Groene negotiated with the prosecutor, the case was dismissed. This was a positive result, as the client avoided the statutory and collateral consequences of a conviction, therefore enabling him to keep his job.

Bradley Groene made an exceptionally difficult situation much easier to handle. He kept me informed of everything that was going to happen and got results for my case far better than I could have hoped for. I would highly recommend him for anyone who finds themselves in legal troubles.
