Cincinnati DUI Reduced to Reckless OpCategory: 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.
