  • Will make suppression case be dismissed overall for a DUI charge?

    I was pulled over supposedly for not stopping at a blinking red light. The cop asked me the typical questions. Long story short I did the field sobriety tests, and was arrested. I got a lawyer, and the cops dash cam. the cop said I did these t...

    Andrew’s Answer

    I am not sure how to answer your question but I do feel obligated to suggest you read some classic Faulkner novels. I believe you will enjoy the "stream of consciousness" style he pioneered, as I recall A Light in August is an excellent example of that work.

    Apart from that, do not put details of your case on here as prosecutors read these and direct questions to your current lawyer.

  • Officer get phone call compliant of erratic driving, moments later im stopped at gas station!

    1st thing he says he pulled me over for a complaint, on ticket he says I almost crashed! then charged me with DUI cause I had few beers, and no insurance which was also false!

    Andrew’s Answer

    Joe is correct, there are very situation specific rules about when an officer can stop a person in relation to a tip of an informant. All agencies in Auglaize county have video in their cruisers and you can also receive the call logs of the dispatcher.

    Andrew’s Answer

    In my business there is nothing better than a negative urine test. Prosecutors have access to the internet and I have had them bring in AVVO questions before with the "is this your client" angle (I of course decline to answer).

    My advice, enjoy the negative screen and stop posting this all over the Internet.

  • In 2 days, I have an OVI pretrial. Should I be concerned that my attorney has communicated nothing but the date & time?

    OVI, wrong way on one way, hit and run

    Andrew’s Answer

    In many Ohio courts I will have received ZERO discovery prior to the initial pretrial so there is nothing new to report.

    Call your lawyer if you are concerned but MANY of my cases are exactly like this at this procedural juncture.

  • Is performing sobriety tests on students leaving school sanctioned functions constitutional?

    In Northern Ohio, a Public School District is performing sobriety tests on students coming to home football games. The districts Superintendent has stated that the process of selection is: "...students coming to the football games will enter throu...

    Andrew’s Answer

    I think the inquiry is what they are then doing with the "evidence" they have taken from the students. Are they going through the school discipline process internally or are they using this evidence to support a criminal charge in a court of law. Making that breath test admissible in a court will be problematic for numerous reasons.

  • If someone is arrested for DUI in Kentucky, lives in Kentucky but has Ohio license and moves back to Ohio, what does that do for

    license from Ohio? All fines and suspensions have been removed with Kentucky. Planning on moving back to Ohio next week.

    Andrew’s Answer

    Contact a KY dui lawyer, your OH license will be suspended if you are convicted of the KY dui. The suspension will not impact your ability to drive in Ohio until a conviction hits the books, not before.

    Be sure to get your advice from an OH or KY attorney on this.

  • Question about OVUAC?

    I know it will be on my record, but is there a BMV policy about only disclosing it for three years?

    Andrew’s Answer

    No, like all traffic in Ohio it will be there and visible forever.

    The points only stay on for 2 years but the conviction will always be there.
