In a complicated OVI case, our client was charged with an OVI 4 th lifetime. Unfortunately, he was charged under the city code, which has a 20 year "look-back", as opposed to the state code, which has a six year "look-back". It was this gentleman's first offense in six years, but 4 th within a twenty-year span. The was discussed and negotiated endlessly until there was a reasonable offer made. It was negotiated that the charge will be amended to the state code, treated as a first offense in six years, and the client received the mandatory minimum sentence, which was the three-day alcohol driver intervention program.
