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.

Hamilton County Assault Case Dismissed

Category: Assault and Battery

Recently, a man in his late 20s found himself facing an assault charge after getting into a physical altercation with his ex-wife’s new husband during a custody exchange. As the man was dropping off his child to be with their mother, a confrontation with the new husband occurred. As such, the police were called, and the man was charged with assault. Facing the penalties of a first-degree misdemeanor – which include 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine – the man knew he needed help, so he reached out to Luftman, Heck & Associates.

Attorney Brad Groene knew the charge against his client was false, so he immediately got to work defending the man’s innocence. After a lengthy period of not agreeing to any plea deals, negotiating with the prosecutor, and subpoenaing the correct witnesses, the charge was dismissed. This was a successful result, as the client faced the loss of his job if he was found guilty of a violent crime.

Hamilton County Single Mother Sees OVI Charge Reduced

Category: Criminal Defense

A single mother in Hamilton County with no criminal record or history with the courts recently found herself facing a charge for operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OVI) after a night out drinking with friends. After taking a breath test that resulted in a 0.13 percent blood alcohol content (BAC) result, she was arrested and charged with the offense. With the possible penalties of jail time and fines, she knew she needed help. This is what brought her to Luftman, Heck & Associates.

Attorney Brad Groene looked at discovery and began negotiations with the prosecutor. During these discussions (and after a few court hearings), the prosecutor agreed to reduce the client’s charge down to reckless operation. While she still received points on her license, a fine, and a license suspension, she avoided having an OVI appear on her record, therefore enabling her to keep her job and move on in life.

Hamilton County OVI Case Dismissed

Category: Criminal Defense

Recently, a 30-year-old Hamilton County man was facing a charge for a third offense of operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OVI) refusal. His situation was particularly serious, as multiple OVIs within a 10-year period in Ohio bring with them harsh consequences, including:

  • Up to one year in jail (60 days of which would be mandatory)
  • Fines
  • A criminal record

Wanting to avoid these penalties, the man reached out to Cincinnati criminal attorney Brad Groene for help.

Attorney Groene immediately got to work on the case and filed for discovery. During this time, he reviewed video recordings of the initial stop and the police officer’s report of the incident. Through this, he saw that there was not much evidence available against the client. There was no breath test, and the client did well on the sobriety test he was asked to perform.

Due to his findings during discovery, attorney Groene requested a motion to suppress hearing. During this proceeding, he argued that the officer did not possess enough probable cause to continue the stop during which the client was initially suspected of an OVI. As a result, the charge was dismissed.

★★★★★
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.
