Martin Luther King Jr. Day: A Call To Action

Martin Luther King Jr. Day - A Call To Action I am celebrating this Martin Luther King Jr. Day by joining my voice with the chorus who recognize the "War on Drugs" is a racist construct that must be concluded.  Our decades-old war on drugs is a racist conspiracy. It was designed to unfairly incarcerate blacks to profit government agencies and corporate America.   In an article in the Huffington Post, Dylan Ratigan and Russell Simmons wrote, "A Federal law passed in 1986 allowed law enforcement agencies to seize drug money, and use it to supplement their budgets. Grabbing cash connected to drugs...

Central Nervous System Depressants

CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DEPRESSANTS - A PRIMER The category of Central Nervous System Depressants includes some of the most commonly abused drugs. Alcohol – the most familiar drug of all – is abused by an estimated 40-50 million Americans. Central nervous system agents are drugs that affect the central nervous system i.e. the brain and the spinal cord, and produce a response that could be used to alleviate or treat a particular medical condition. Central nervous system agents can be used as analgesics, anesthetics, anti-emetics, anti-convulsants, and have many more therapeutic uses.Slightly more than half of Americans age 12 or...

Retrograde Extrapolation: The Rising Alcohol Defense

Retrograde Extrapolation: The Rising Alcohol Defense Retrograde extrapolation is the scientific and mathematical process used by chemists and toxicologists to estimate what a person’s blood alcohol content was at a specific time based on test results obtained at a later period of time. For the DUI case, it is used to determine whether or not a driver had a BAC of 0.08 or higher at the actual time of driving based on what the BAC was at the time of testing.Typically, we encounter retrograde extrapolation in cases where the collection of blood evidence is collected hours after the act of driving...

DUI Motion To Suppress – Appellate Challenges

DUI Motion To Suppress - Appellate Challenges There are three methods of challenging a trial court’s ruling on a DUI motion to suppress on appeal. First, an appellant may challenge the trial court’s finding of fact. In reviewing a challenge of this nature, an appellate court must determine whether the trial court’s findings of fact are against the manifest weight of the evidence. See State v. Fanning (1982), 1 Ohio St.3d 19, 437 N.E.2d 583; and State v. Klein (1991), 73 Ohio App.3d 486, 597 N.E.2d 1141.Second, an appellant may argue that the trial court failed to apply the appropriate test...

Happy Holidays From All Of Us At DaytonDUI

From all of us at Dayton DUI, we wish you the happiest of the holiday season. Holiday messages - I always struggle with these  holiday messages. I want to be sincere (see the Longfellow quote). Yet, I do not wish to be overly sentimental (thus, the Muppet video). Then it occurred to me: There are always people who take the holidays a little too seriously. Others among us do not find time to see the beauty of the holiday season.  As my kids have grown, I found myself failing to see the magic and falling into the latter camp. That changed last...

Mandatory DUI Penalties – They Are Harsh!

Mandatory DUI Penalties We are often confronted with disbelief when we inform a recently charged person of the mandatory DUI penalties.  They are harsh! Often, a judge will not have discretion about what penalties to impose. Pleading guilty can cost you in ways you do not contemplate. It is important to speak to a good DUI lawyer.Below are the mandatory DUI penalties for a first, second and third drunk driving charge.  If you have a prior offense within 20 years and refuse an alcohol test, you get sentenced as though you had a "high-tier" result.What can you conclude? Drunk driving is a...

DUI Checkpoints – Why They Exist

  DUI Checkpoints & The Supreme CourtDUI checkpoints, have been upheld by the United States Supreme Court. In the 1990 case of Michigan v. Sitz, 496 U.S. 444 (1990), the court reviewed a checkpoint scheme to detect drunk drivers. Michigan demonstrated that its checkpoint program was minimally intrusive. In addition, they relied heavily upon the fact that Michigan established and operated the DUI checkpoints pursuant to specific procedural safeguards. The Court relied heavily upon a decision of the California Supreme Court, Ingersoll v. Palmer, 742 P.2d 1299 (1987).  Like Sitz, the Ingersoll case placed strict procedural guidelines on the government.Sign up...

Lawyer Up! Use Your Right To Remain Silent

I Have A Right To Remain Silent! We frequently encounter jurisdictions that conduct “interviews” with a suspect following an arrest.  These interviews are carefully crafted checklists that gather incriminating statements related to the elements of the crime and further attempt to limit mitigating factors which your attorney may later wish to assert.  You have the right to remain silent – use it!The questions typically seek to establish that the suspect was “operating” the vehicle.  Officers will also ask what the person had to eat and drink, when, where and how much.  Medical issues, mental issues, eye health, and other questions seek...
