Dayton, OH (PRWEB) September 05, 2013
After being effectively represented by Dayton DUI law firm Gounaris Denslow Abboud, Co. LPA, a man who was arrested for an alleged offense of drunk driving was able to avoid a one-year driver’s license suspension, and he was able to get his DUI charges dismissed. The case was dismissed after the firm’s client completed a diversion program, allowing him to avoid having a DUI conviction on his record. Gounaris Denslow Abboud, Co. offers aggressive legal advocacy on behalf of individuals throughout Dayton, Ohio who have been accused of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
The case that resulted in the dismissal of charges was State of Ohio v. D.G. (Case No. TRC 1306636), which was handled in Vandalia Municipal Court. According to details of the case provided by Gounaris Denslow Abboud, Co., the defendant had been pulled over for allegedly failing to display his license plate light properly, which is a violation of the Ohio Revised Code §4513.13. The Ohio State Trooper who made the traffic stop is said to have smelled a strong odor of alcohol, which led to the driver being asked to step out of his vehicle and participate in three field sobriety tests—the Walk and Turn, the One-Leg Stand and the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (HGN) test. Because the State Trooper believed that the driver failed the tests, the man was arrested at the scene.
The driver was then asked to take a breathalyzer test at the Ohio State Patrol post, but he refused, according to the case details. Because of Ohio’s implied consent law that requires submission to breath tests and other chemical tests after DUI arrests, the driver’s refusal was going to result in a one-year driver’s license suspension. The man then took immediate action and retained the services of Gounaris Denslow Abboud, Co. The firm’s attorneys filed a motion to set aside the administrative license suspension based on the fact that such a suspension would create severe hardship on the defendant’s employment.
The court granted the motion, which resulted in the suspension being removed. Furthermore, the law firm successfully negotiated with the prosecution so that the defendant could get into a DUI diversion program rather than receive a conviction. Upon completing the weekend education program, the firm’s client was able to get all of his charges dismissed.
