At Taubman Law we never condone drinking and driving, but when people are arrested for OVI/DUI we also want to be sure their rights are protected. We recently had a case where a client was pulled over in Berea, Ohio, around 3 in the morning for following too closely. The defendant submitted to field sobriety tests, which he failed. At that time he was taken to the police station where he refused to take the breathalyzer test and received an ALS (academic license suspension) for one year, was charged with OVI and with following too closely. Unfortunately during his arrest he also complicated matters by trying to talk his way out of the situation with arresting officer.
Despite all of this, after numerous hearings – including a motion to suppress, Taubman Law was able to get the charges reduced to physical control (which adds no points on the license. Moreover, a few weeks later a motion was filed to terminate the ALS suspension, and that was granted.
At Taubman Law we are dedicated to helping our clients to the best result possible. If you have been charged with an OVI, don’t take the risk of taking the case on by yourself. Contact us to get the help you need.
