OVI Trial Practice: Admission of the Alcohol Influence Report

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.Evidence Rule 803(8) excludes...

Is This The End of Drunk Driving Arrests?

Dayton OVI Sobriety Checkpoint Update: July 17, 2010

I have checked with all of our regular sources and there appears to be no sobriety checkpoints scheduled tonight in the Miami Valley.  There will be two checkpoints tonight in Cincinnati.  The first will be from 9-11 pm, on North Bend Road.  The second OVI checkpoint will be from midnight until 2 am on Colerain near Blue Spruce.  The Clermont County checkpoint will be on Rt. 52 near mile marker 7 (in Neville) from 4-8pm.  The underlying theory of OVI checkpoints is not to arrest drunk drivers but to instill fear of arrest in the law-abiding public.  By advertising these...

Dayton DUI Sobriety Checkpoint Update, June 11, 2010

NO SOBRIETY CHECKPOINTS TONIGHT!Image via WikipediaWe have checked with our regular sources and are happy to report that there are no Sobriety Checkpoints scheduled for June 11th. We will keep you posted as we receive more information.WHY DO YOU DO THIS?
