Alcohol Influence Report – OVI Trial Strategy

The Alcohol Influence Report is a document prepared by the arresting officer noting each and every indicator for alcohol impairment that they took note of in their investigation. Most of the forms require that the officer simply check the predetermined indicator. Not surprisingly, all the officer's observations fall neatly into these predetermined areas. The report is a document of the officers opinions and should not be considered routine ministerial reports of a non-adversarial nature. Clearly, letting the jury have this document as evidence to review in the jury room would be prejudicial to an OVI defense. You need an attorney who...

Self-Driving Cars and the End of DUI?

Will Self-Driving Cars End DUI? One of the most frequently asked questions I get is, "Did Uber kill your business?"  Occasionally, someone will ask about the arrival of self-driving cars. Well, the unfortunate truth is that neither self-driving cars or the Uber/Lyft phenomena is a panacea. Self-Driving Cars Self-driving cars have a great potential to stop DUI drivers.  But...

Dayton DUI – DUI Expungement

DUI Expungement No DUI expungement under Ohio law? One of the reasons I am proud to defend DUI cases, is that these cases are unduly stigmatized.  For example, if you punch someone in the nose your friends will say, "Wow, what happened?" If, however, you say you were charged with a DUI, they will say, "Oh, I'm sorry."  It is this assumed guilt that is like no other criminal offense.  It erodes at our Constitutionally guaranteed right to be presumed innocent. What makes this presumption particularly frustrating is that DUI cases are notoriously hard for the prosecution to prove. An experienced attorney can find...

Zero Tolerance Per Se Marijuana Laws

Zero Tolerance Per Se Marijuana Law Ohio adopted a “Zero Tolerance Per Se Marijuana Law." It is the harshest and least effective method of enforcement.  To demonstrate how Ohio approached DUIM (driving under the influence of marijuana) let’s look at how other states have approached the issue. Current laws in the United States prohibiting driving under the influence of marijuana fall into one of three categories. Impairment Laws Many states prohibit driving under the influence of marijuana (or any drug) to the degree that one cannot safely operate a vehicle, or some other effect-based language. This is the approach used by the vast majority of...

Drugged Driving – Dude, I’m Injured Not Stoned

DRUGGED DRIVING - IS THIS PERSON INJURED OR STONED? When a law enforcement officer comes upon a crash scene he or she may suspect illicit drug use. Their training, the  National Highway Traffic Safety Administration manual and common sense dictate that no suspicion of drug use be  assumed without evidence. When a case involves medical problems, a drug investigation (DRE, drug recognition expert evaluation) should not be performed. This is the rule per NHTSA. The government wants to avoid confusing possible drug use with the observations really being medical issues. Where the NHTSA manual states in a situation like this, "your primary...
