I had a big victory on a small part of a case today involving a DUI in Fairfield Municipal Court in Butler County, Ohio. The Case involved a third offense in 6 years DUI / OVI and a Driving Under OVI Suspension.
As a lawyer I am always trying to find the best defenses to my clients’ DUI charges. The fight involved 60 days in ail and up to 1.5 years in jail.
Also at stake was my client’s car. If found guilty his car was subject to mandatory forfeiture.
My client entered a plea on the case and was sentenced after I read my mitigation to a minimum 60 days in jail, a really good result for him. However, my preparation of the case discovered a defect in the vehicle forfeiture.
A motion in opposition to the mandatory vehicle forfeiture was filed on behalf of my client and we had a hearing today. After a brief oral argument, the Court ruled in favor of the defense, and I was able to save my client’s car!
