A 17-year veteran of the Cleveland Police Department has been fired following an OVI and hit-skip arrest, according to Mayor Frank Jackson’s office.

Lt. Michael Baker,46, was arrested around 12:30 a.m. on June 15th after someone called Parma police to report hearing a loud boom. The accident happened in the area of West 9th in Parma but reports didn’t give any details of the crash, other than the car took off.

Baker was arrested a short time later. He was suspended following the accident.

In September, Baker was found guilty of OVI by a judge. He was sentenced to three additional days in jail and had his license suspended for one year. He was also found guilty of violating the terms and conditions of his Last Chance Agreement with the city.

Baker lost his job and many other people who get ovi’s in Ohio lose their jobs becasue of a conviction. If you have a CDL, you could lose your CDL and ability to make a living for two years.  Getting driving privileges as soon as possible and have an experienced and dedicated attorney is key to maintaining your job and being found not guilty.

Four things I always tell me friends or random strangers at bar about OVI/DUI’s in Ohio

  1. If you get pulled over and you’ve had a few beers or glasses of wine. Never, never  admit to having a beer or one glass of wine with dinner . All this does is give the officer probable cause to continue his or her investigation into the possibility that you are operating a vehicle impaired. Cops are going to smell beer, say you have glassy eyes and slurred speech anyways so why give them any more ammunition?
  2. You never have to do field sobriety tests in the Ohio. This is a voluntary act and the test is subjective in nature. If you fail this test which 95% of sober people do, it will give the officer enough evidence to arrest you for an OVI and it will be harder for an OVI attorney to knock down you dui
  3. You can refuse the portable breathalyzer in Ohio with no punishment. To be clear this is device that most cops will have in their car. If you refuse the the breathalyzer at the station you will be facing an ALS suspension that varies in length depending on your particular set of facts. (I will address this in a later post).
  4. If you find yourself arrested for an DUI in Ohio, give me a ring. I will explain everything to you and the consultation is always free

PORTAGE COUNTY CHECKPOINT

The Ohio State Highway Patrol in conjunction with Kent Police Department announced today that an OVI checkpoint will be held from 10:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. tonight on State Route 59, in Portage County.

CLARK COUNTY CHECKPOINT

A “no refusal” checkpoint where drivers will be forced to stop and potentially submit to having their blood taken on the side of the road by law enforcement authorities is planned for Clark County, Ohio on October 24.

“Every car will be checked to ensure that drivers are not impaired. If there is sufficient probable cause to believe that a driver is operating a vehicle while impaired, law enforcement will seek a blood search warrant from a “neutral and detached magistrate,

My recommendation would be stay out of Clark County tonight

FRANKLIN COUNTY

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Two sobriety checkpoints are planned in the northwest Columbus.

The first one will be held on Bethel Road, east of Kenny Road from 9 p.m. until 11 p.m. on Friday.

The second will be on Sawmill Road, north of I-270, from 11:30 p.m. Friday until 1:30 a.m. on Saturday.

Thanks Hastie Law for the information!

Hi friends,

We have a busy few days coming up in Cleveland and Solon this week but first the results from the 6 State crackdown on the I-70 corridor that occured last week. The Ohio State Highway Patrol reported that they issued eight OVI arrests, 19 safety belt citations and 343 speed citations in the duration of the latest 6-State Trooper project.  Feel free to insert joke about the use of man power, money and the minimal results that followed. I assume that just like checkpoints, the idea behind this is to show presence and hope in the future other drivers will follow the law, not speed and clearly not drink and drive

Cleveland

Cleveland must be jealous of the rate of checkpoints that other cities like Parma, Lakewood, Columbus and South Euclid have been pumping out lately. In an effort to compete The Cleveland Division of Police Fifth District will operate a Sobriety Checkpoint today, Thursday, October 16, 2014 from 11:00pm until 3:00am at St. Clair Avenue/East 105th Street. and a Friday night ( 10/17/14)  license checkpoint this week. Check back here tomorrow for the location and time of that checkpoint

Solon

Solon will be conducting a checkpoint Friday night, October 17, 2014 at a time and location that will be announced sometime soon. I will post the information as soon as i get it

The Ohio State Highway Patrol will be joining forces with other members of the 6-State Trooper Project in an effort to reduce unsafe driving behaviors. Troopers will be targeting safety belt, aggressive driving and impaired motorists along the Interstate 70 corridor. The initiative will take place from October 10 at 12:01 a.m. through October 12 at 11:59 p.m. This high-visibility enforcement effort will include the Indiana State Police, Pennsylvania State Police and the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

“The Ohio State Highway Patrol takes the crime of impaired driving seriously,” said Colonel Paul Pride, Patrol superintendent. “Impaired driving is a crime that puts innocent people’s lives in danger.”

From 2009 to 2013, there were a total of 61 fatal crashes on Interstate 70 in Ohio, including 14 that involved an impaired driver. So far this year, there have been nine fatal crashes, including three that involved alcohol and/or drugs on this stretch of road.

The Patrol is dedicated to removing impaired drivers from Ohio roads and increasing educational efforts related to the importance of safety belt usage. In addition, the agency is committed to working with law enforcement partners to address traffic safety issues and crime on our roadways.

The 6-State Trooper Project includes the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Kentucky State Police, Indiana State Police, Pennsylvania State Police, West Virginia State Police and the Michigan State Police.

It is a multi-state law enforcement partnership aimed at providing combined and coordinated law enforcement and security services in the areas of highway safety, criminal patrol and intelligence sharing.

Hi Friends,

I stumbled across this article from the Cleveland Plain Dealer and thought I would share it. If you ever in need of an attorney to protect your rights, contact us.

Here is the link to the article

 

PARMA, Ohio — No one was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving during a sobriety checkpoint Friday in Parma. Nevertheless, police believe it was a success.

“Contrary to popular belief, [drunken driving checkpoints] aren’t really to catch drunken drivers,” Parma Sgt. Ken Gillissie said. “They’re to educate the public.”

Officers checked 375 cars during Friday’s checkpoint, which took place from 7 p.m. to midnight in the 5600 block of Pearl Road.

Each driver was given information about drunken driving and a complementary $5 cab voucher as part of a partnership between Ace Taxi and the Cuyahoga County DUI Task Force.

Flashing signs also publicized information such as the fact 341 people died in drunken driving incidents last year in Ohio.

The Parma Police Department operates three to four checkpoints per year with funding through the Cuyahoga County DUI Task Force, police said.

Many drivers say they appreciate the extra scrutiny. During a recent checkpoint, one car even circled the block several times in order to be directed into the checkpoint for questioning, Gillissie said.

Parma sobriety checkpoint Parma Capt. Joseph Boback demonstrates what it’s like to drive through a drunken driving checkpoint.

“They said they wanted the experience,” he said.

Some drivers complain the checkpoints are bothersome or an encroachment on their rights, Gillissie said. However, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that the checkpoints, which are designed to be non-discriminatory, are constitutional, according to the Ohio State Bar Association.

Twenty-one cars were diverted for further inspection during Friday’s checkpoint. One driver was cited for possession of suspected marijuana and two were cited for disorderly conduct.

An officer is assigned to count cars and send a certain number into the checkpoint; at busy times that could be every fourth or fifth car, but at slower times it could be every car, Gillissie said.

A patrol car is stationed near the entrance to watch for drivers who make illegal turns to avoid it, Gillissie said. An increased number of patrol cars, known as saturation patrols, are also stationed nearby to catch drunken drivers.

Drivers who are diverted during checkpoints might be asked to take three field sobriety tests. If the driver fails two tests, he or she is arrested, Gillissie said.

A driver is then observed for 20 minutes before being asked to take a breath test. The driver can refuse to take the breath test.

Parma police use a van filled with equipment, including cameras and the Intoxilyzer 8000 breath test machine, to record every aspect of the observation and test. Only Parma Detention Center corrections officers can administer tests because they must be state-certified, according to corrections officer Brian Berardi.
