Drunk Driving and Deportations

Drinking and driving is never a good idea, but if you happen to be an illegal immigrant a DUI charge can mean more than just fines.According to the Associated Press, drunk driving-related deportations have nearly tripled from 10,851 cases in 2008 to 28,635 in the fiscal year ending September, 2010. Another 13,028 illegal aliens were deported for other serious traffic violations – three times the 4,527 offenders deported in 2008.  If this trend continues, drunk driving may surge ahead of drug crimes to become the number one cause of criminal deportation.  The increase in DUI-related deportations helped the government set...

Limited Driving Privileges

The Limits on Limited Driving PrivilegesRevised Code 4510.021 authorizes courts to grant "limited driving privileges."

Juvenile DUI Addressed in Ohio Supreme Court

The issue the Ohio Supreme Court addresses in State v. Adkins, 2011-Ohio-3141  is whether a pre-January 1, 1996 juvenile adjudication can be considered one of the five prior similar offenses necessary to enhance an R.C. 4511.19(A)(1)(a) charge for operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol (“OVI”).

Intoxilyzer 8000 Can Be Challenged In Court

An Athens County judge's ruling in an OVI case has opened the door for defense attorneys to challenge the Intoxilyzer 8000 in court and may signal the death of a controversial 1984 Supreme Court decision which ruled that the machines were not open to challenges from accused defendants.  Judge William A. Grim found that while the Intoxilyzer's results do meet the minimum standard for admissibility, defense attorneys should be allowed, on a case-by-case basis, to use expert witnesses to attack the results.  Judge Grim also found reason to suspect that radio interference from cellphones can skew...

BIG Win for DUI Defendants: Bullcoming v. New Mexico

6th Amendment Confrontation Clause Victory in U.S. Supreme CourtWhen a prosecutor wants to present a toxicology or forensic report, they must subpoena the person who actually did the work that produced the report.  Except in DUI cases. In DUI cases, prosecutors try to admit the report without testimony or allow the analysts supervisor to testify about the analysts work.  DUI defense attorneys challenged this approach arguing that admitting the test without the actual testimony of the person who prepared the results violates a defendant's Sixth Amendment rights under the Confrontation Clause.  This issue found its way to consideration...
