OVI Reduced to Reckless Driving

Posted On: April 29th, 2014 by Bradley J. Groene

A young sales professional in his 20s ran into trouble during a night out with friends. He was stopped after leaving the bar when an officer reportedly noticed his car weaving and speeding. The salesman was pulled over and asked to perform field sobriety tests and a breath test. He blew a .153, well above the Ohio legal limit. The officer cited him for OVI.

The young man feared that an OVI conviction would cost him his employment. He had to maintain a clean driving record and valid driver’s license to keep his job. Having an OVI on his record would have made him unemployable in his field. He knew he needed help from a lawyer, and contacted Attorney Brad Groene of the Cincinnati Criminal Defense team.

We reviewed the evidence in his case and filed motions to suppress the results of his breath test and field sobriety tests. After numerous court dates with multiple prosecutors, we were able to successfully argue that there were key problems with the prosecutor’s case. We negotiated to have the OVI charge reduced to reckless driving. Additional seat belt and speeding charges were dismissed. Our client was extremely grateful for this outcome.

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.
