Veteran’s OVI Reduced to Reckless OperationCategory: 2014
An honorably discharged Army veteran was celebrating a holiday with some fellow veteran friends. He was pulled over in Clinton County by a police officer, who then reported noticing that the veteran smelled of alcohol and had bloodshot, watery eyes. He was given field sobriety tests and blew .161 on a breath test — above the Ohio legal limit. He was charged with OVI.
The veteran now works in the construction industry, and feared an OVI conviction on his record would cost him his job and his livelihood. He came to Attorney Brad Groene of the Cincinnati Criminal Defense team for help.
We examined every facet of his case and found there were issues with the breath test and field sobriety tests. We were able to negotiate with prosecutors to have the OVI charge reduced to reckless operation.
