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.

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...
