Ohio DUI Law: State v. Wilson
State v. Wilson, 5/26/10 (First District Court of Appeals)
The defendant was stopped and the officer smelled marijuana. Thirty-five seconds later the officer asks the defendant to step from the car. It was at this point that the officer is informed that the defendant has a concealed carry permit. The Ohio concealed carry statute requires the defendant to “promptly” inform the officer of the fact that the defendant was carrying.
No problem right? Not according to the First District Court of Appeals, who ruled that the defendant did not “promptly” notify the officer.
