Vehicle Immobilizations (by DaytonDUI)

An arrest for drunk driving has many harsh and unintended consequences.  One of the most vexing is immobilization. When a person is arrested for DUI the arresting officer has discretion as to whether or not the suspect's car will be towed.  Sometimes safety concerns, agency policy or other  concerns will cause the officer to call for a tow truck to impound your car.  I have also had cases where an officer goes to great lengths to secure a suspect's car so that they will not incur the inconvenience of an impoundment.  As with other aspects of Ohio DUI law, having...

Administrative License Suspension (by DaytonDUI)

If you are stopped for an OVI, DUI or drunk driving and you refuse to take a chemical test (breath, blood or urine), or if your test results exceed the legal limit of Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC), the police officer can and will take your driver's license on the spot causing your drivers license to be suspended immediately.  This pre-conviction suspension is called the ADMINISTRATIVE LICENSE SUSPENSION. The ALS is a suspension imposed by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles and not a suspension imposed by the court.  For many the days following a drunk driving arrest are the hardest to...

Park, 2012-Ohio-4069, the 5th District Court of Appeals sided with troopers in their administration of a sobriety checkpoint.  The Court found against Defendant’s Karen Parks claim that she was wrongfully stopped at a Licking County sobriety checkpoint because the troopers lacked reasonable suspicion of criminal activity and did not properly administer the stop.  The Defendant alleged that the troopers adjusted how many vehicles they stopped depending on the traffic in violation of their posted procedures.  “Based upon the high volume of traffic, the troopers stopped every third vehicle, but when the traffic decreased,...

DaytonDUI And The Continuing Problems With the Intoxilyzer 8000

The implementation of the Intoxilyzer 8000 continues to be an embarrassment to all Ohioans.  Not only is the machine rife with problems, but the Ohio Department of Health has botched both the writing of the rules of implementation.  Now they plan on shutting down the key component of the Intoxilyzer 8000 scheme, the Breath Instrument On-line Database.  The shutdown is due to complications, missing tests and disappearing data.  This raises the question as to how the Ohio Department of Health will prove that they maintain three (3) years of data/subject tests as required by law.  Likewise, they are unable to...

DaytonDUI and the Cowboy Code of Conduct

I came across this "Code of the West" some years ago.  It has been a constant source of guidance in both my personal and professional dealings.  Attorneys could do worse than to live by this code in our profession and our dealings with clients.Code of the West (from "Cowboy Ethics: What Wall Street Can Learn from the Code of the West" by James P. Owen) Live each day with courage. Take pride in your work. Always finish what you start. Do what has to be done. Be tough, but fair. When you make a promise, keep it. Ride for the brand. Talk less and say more. Remember that some things aren't...
