My daughter has almost identical circumstances as the woman who asked if her first offense .18 test, Tier 2 DUI can be reduced to a Tier 1. My question is does the statute prohibit a Tier 2 from being reduced to a reckless operation? Thank you.
There is no statute that prohibits a reduction of a high-tier OVI to a Reckless Operation. The prosecutor does however...
When I left the bar I had a friend following me in a car. We went about 2 miles down the road and then entered the highway. Never once was there a cop behind me or the person that was following me. The person that was following me said they saw the SHP guy enter the highway about a quarter mile behind her. Then he sped to catch up to us and ended up cutting her off to pull me over. The SHP officer asked me if I knew the people in the car behind me bc they were following close behind. I just said nope to not cause other problems. After that he told me he saw me "cross the white line" and thats why he pulled me over. But he was never behind me? can I request the video/radio footage and fight this?
If the car is equipped with a dash cam, the video can usually be recovered and used to determine the accuracy of the...
We currently have an arrangement outside of the court system for shared custody. She was just charged with a second DUI in a 3 year span. The first offense resulted in a 10 day stint in jail. This second offense is likely to be the same, due to the charges being reduced to a low tier DUI. Some combination of jail, counseling, house arrest. I am a stable father, with no criminal record who has kept the same job for over 10 years.
The legal standard for determining custody is "the best interests of the child." The court can look at many factors...
I was charged with a minor misdemeanor in Oakwood, Ohio for underage drinking. The citation allows me to pay a fine. Is there any way I can enter into a diversion program to get the charge dropped and how do I go about doing that? If I just pay the fine, will it go on my record and if so could I get it expunged?
Underage consumption (Drinking) is usually a misdemeanor of the 1st degree (M-1). Are you sure this is a pay out...
This happened outside a private residence. (All of us are 19 or 20.) My 3 buddies all admitted to drinking, I told him (The Cop) that I was the DD and did not drink anything. Guess what, I was the only one to get a ticket. The cop said I was lying and that is why I was the only one getting a ticket. I asked for a sobriety test and or a breathalyzer, he said that was not necessary. I also received an underage ticket earlier this year in a different county, that was reduced to disorderly conduct. The ticket I received this time, stated I was in possession of an open can of beer (which is a flat out lie.) What should I do? I doubt the cop will admit to giving me a ticket for "lying". He also told my mother the exact same thing, as she was called to pick us up. What should I do?
What should you do? Be more careful about the friends you choose. Regarding the citation--It sounds like you wish to...
