Case Dismissed For Client Charged With OVI


Client was pulled over for speeding and a marked lanes violation one night at around 2:00 a.m. Both of these offenses are minor misdemeanors and would only subject the client to minimal fines and court cost. The State Highway Patrol however accused Mr. Meranda's client of driving while impaired and cited him also with OVI, a misdemeanor of the first degree. The client would be subjected to the ridicule that comes with an OVI offense, up to a six month incarceration period, a maximum fine of $1075.00 and a license suspension ranging from six months up to three years. Defense Attorney Zachuary Meranda filed a motion to suppress the probable cause of the stop and the testing procedures for the urine test due to their lack in compliance with the Ohio Annotated Code sections required by the State of Ohio. Shortly thereafter the OVI offense was dismissed by the State of Ohio. Needless to say this was another happy client for the firm.
