Norwood DUI Amended to Physical Control Violation

Veteran Ohio DUI lawyer Brad Groene recently aided a man in Norwood Mayor’s Court after a traffic accident and subsequent field sobriety test resulted in a DUI charge. Despite his previously clear criminal record, he now faced some harsh consequences including possible jail time, substantial fines, and the suspension of his driver’s license. This led him to Luftman, Heck & Associates, where attorney Brad Groene discussed his options and advised his client on how to proceed.

In an initial meeting, it was evident that the prosecution was unwilling to negotiate for a reduced charge. Undeterred, attorney Groene was determined to hold the state to their standard to proof and filed a motion to suppress, challenging the results of the field sobriety test and the probable cause for his client’s arrest. By demonstrating his commitment and pointing out the weaknesses in the case, attorney Groene facilitated an agreement to amend the DUI to a minor physical control traffic violation. This arrangement prevented a DUI offense from appearing on his client’s record and preserved his ability to drive so he could easily move on with his life.
