What Is Probation Like?

Probation and Community Control Probation in Ohio is now called "community control." It provides for terms and conditions you must comply with in order not to go to jail.  The system requires you to work with a "probation officer" (P.O.) for a given period of time as set by the court.  A common misconception is that the probation officer will actively work against you in an effort to return you to jail.  Most of the time, the probation officer is working to make sure you comply with the court order and stay out of jail.  It is up to you to...

What Is Your Favorite Legal Movie?

What is your favorite legal movie?DUI defense is never far from my mind.  I was reminded of this last weekend watching my favorite legal movie, “My Cousin Vinny.” In the movie, a novice New York attorney (Joe Pesci) heads to the deep south to defend his cousin and his friend in a high-profile murder case.  He is met with a hostile judge and a pompous attorney who are hell bent on seeing the two kids put away for murder. Consequently, comedy ensues.Because of his inexperience, Vinny has a hard time at trial. Especially relevant is his lack of understanding of...

This month, the Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration  proposed a framework of regulations that would allow routine use of certain small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in today’s aviation system, while maintaining flexibility to accommodate future technological innovations.

Dedicated to DUI Defense

DUI Defense Is All I Do When you cruise the internet looking for DUI Defense Attorneys, be sure to look for these buzz words."The DUI lawyer(S)" "Our DUI Team" - This means that more than one member of the firm could be responsible for handling your charge.  It is not uncommon to not know who will show up to handle your case until the court date. It is also not uncommon to be under the assumption that the attorney you met with will be "your" attorney.  Ask who will represent me at your initial consultation. At Babb & Rowland, the only person...

Binge Drinking and College Culture – Dayton DUI

Binge Drinking - What Is The Problem? Some opponents of alcohol consumption target the problem of binge drinking on college campuses. While there is no consensus on what "binge drinking" is, we know that college students do a lot of it. Binge drinking is the current target of temperance proponents. It is blamed for everything from sexual assaults to deaths from consumption. When a person consumes heavily, with the intention of achieving intoxication above .08% BAC, they are "binge drinking" according to critics. 74.4 percent of the time they are doing it with beer. (Nami, et.al. 2004). Wine bingers are rare....

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...
