Why do you defend drunk drivers?

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="210" caption="Image via Wikipedia"][/caption]No one supports a driver's decision to get behind the wheel after excessively consuming alcohol.  When my family drives down the road, they are  in as much danger as you are from the harm caused by a drunk driver.  As an attorney, however, I have an obligation to assure that the rights of people are protected from the misuse of "science" in an overly zealous pursuit of a laudable public goal.  There are serious flaws in the administration and evaluation of the standardized field sobriety tests and the evidential breath testing protocol adopted by...

Ohio DUI Defense: BAC DataMaster and “Interference”

What Does It Mean When My BAC DataMaster Ticket Shows an Interfering Substance? HOW IT WORKS: The BAC DataMaster is made with two filters which work to assure that only ethanol is present in a test result.  The filters rely on simple chemistry (different absorption curves/different micron levels for interferants) to prevent acetone, methanol, isopropyl or other interfering substances from artificially increasing the result.  When an interferant is present the two filters try to reach the same ethanol result.  To get to the same ethanol level, the machine subtracts the interfering substance (derived from...

Ohio OVI Law – a definition

In Ohio driving under the influence includes driving while intoxicated with too much alcohol, or driving under the influence of a drug of abuse. The traditional offense is "driving under the influence of alcohol" (DUI). Ohio has also enacted a second, so-called "per se"...
