What Does A DUI Cost?

What does a DUI defense cost?  We encounter many people who want a rational, economic justification for hiring an OVI attorney on a first offense OVI.  The only study I could find on this topic was a 2006 Texas Department of Transportation study which calculated the costs of a drunk driving conviction "in that state showed the total costs of a DWI arrest and conviction for a first-time offender with no accident involved would range from $9,000 to $24,000." [source]  In a story from CNBC citing that study, they speculate that total costs, absent you losing your job, could range...

Standardized Field Sobriety Tests: You Can’t Say That!

"The notion that an officer may testify and estimate that a person, based on his or her Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus results, will test over the statutory limit a certain percentage of the time is alarming."  This is not the opinion of an OVI defense attorney, but the opinion of the 4th District Court of Appeals in State v. Martin, 2005-Ohio-1732 (Ohio Ct. App. 4th Dist. Pickaway County 2005)(error found to be harmless in light of the other evidence adduced).  Therein, the court found it was error for the trial court to permit the arresting officer to testify that four or...

OVI Blood Test Defense: Microbial Contamination

Blood cases present the opportunity for multiple scientific defenses, but only if we recognize them and present them in a coherent manner before our judges.  Many of these scientific defenses can arise from problems in the blood draw.  If the blood draw is flawed microorganisms may contaminate the blood sample.  If this happens sugars (natrually present in the blood) can be converted into ethanol, resulting in a fasley high test.  Candida albicans is a yeast that lives on just about everything and is resistant to most preservatives.  In Lakatuka, D.J., “The Effect of Microbial Contamination of the Blood Sample on the Determination...

Driving Privileges: Can A Court Prevent Me From Drinking?

A trial court is vested with a great amount of discretion in issuing limited driving privileges under an Administrative License Suspension.  A court may require, as a condition of allowing you to have pre-trial limited driving privileges, that you abstain from the use of alcohol.  The issuing court also has the discretion to order you to put bright yellow, shame-plates on your car and can order you to wear a transdermal alcohol detection unit (commonly called the S.C.R.A.M., "Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitor").  What is more, the court will make you pay for the installation and monitoring of the device....

Defending The Accusation Of Slurred Speech (by DaytonDUI)

A very common observation by law enforcement in an impaired driving investigation is the presence of "slurred speech."  Experience trial counsel will look to the totality of evidence to combat the damning accusation of slurred speech.Many traffic stops are now captured on video tape.  As the quality of the recordings has improved we are often able to hear exactly what the officer is hearing.  Reasonable people can disagree as to whether or not the speech on a video is "slurred" and whether or not it was fair for the officer to describe the speech as slurred.  Another, more subtle method...
