Asserting An Affirmative Defense In An OVI

In an Ohio OVI, a defendant may rely on an affirmative defense.  The Ohio Revised Code 2901.05(C) recognizes an affirmative defense to certain crimes and offenders. If an affirmative defense is asserted, the burden of proof is on the defendant to prove the affirmative defense by a preponderance of the evidence. The following are the affirmative defenses are recognized:Entrapment Insanity Self-Defense Intoxication Duress BlackoutIf you plan to assert an affirmative defense, it will be raised at the trial stage and not in a pre-trial motion.  Often, the biggest hurdle in the assertion of an affirmative defense will be crafting the affirmative defense and having the court...

Standardized Field Sobriety Tests – An Infographic

This info graphic describes the science behind the standardized field sobriety tests (spoiler alert: There isn't much).  Field Sobriety Tests are commonly known as the roadside activities that police officers ask drivers to perform if the officer suspects that the driver is impaired by alcohol or another impairing substance. We call them “stupid human tricks.”  Contrary to popular understanding and belief, many of these tests have little basis in science, and the ones that do are frequently performed incorrectly.You are also subjected to a great variance in the officer’s understanding of the tests and his or her ability to competently administer...

Operating A Vehicle After Underage Consumption: Ohio’s Juvenile OVI Law

Ohio has made illegal the practice of operating a vehicle after underage consumption (OVUAC).  O.R.C. 4511.19(B) makes it illegal for persons under 21 years of age to drive a vehicle with a concentration of .02 percent, but less than .08 percent by weight of alcohol by whole blood or breath, or with an equivalent amount by blood serum or plasma or urine.  (1994 S.B. 82, eff. 5/4/94).  In 2004, amended R.C. 4511.19(B) renamed the offense “operating a vehicle after underage consumption” (OVUAC).  These quasi-zero tolerance levels are justified by the fact that this age group accounts for a “disproportionate share of alcohol-related accidents.”...

Court’s Find A Way To Protect Intoxilyzer 8000

Ohio Courts are slowly fixing the Intoxilyzer 8000 implementation issues and (surprise!) they are not resolving the issues in favor of the accused.In State v. McMahon, 2013-Ohio-2557, the implementation of the Intoxilyzer 8000 was challenged due to confusion in the Ohio Administrative Code sections dealing with "operators."  It was alleged that the Ohio Department of Health failed to establish qualifications for issuing permits for Intoxilyzer 8000 operators as required by R.C. 4511.19 and 3701.143.  The court ruled that R.C. 3701.143 authorizes the director of health to issue permits to breath-alcohol machine operators, and we found the ODH’s position that an...

O.R.C. 4507.02(F)(2) and 4503.231.  These bright yellow restricted plates with prominent red lettering (often referred to as "party plates") are an indelible record of your offense and will not be easily forgotten...
