One of our experienced defense attorneys, Jon Jensen, has helped an OVIclient obtain a beneficial outcome in Delaware County Municipal Court. The client was stopped for failing to yield at a stop sign. She submitted to field sobriety testing, which she failed. The client refused a chemical test and was charged with OVI/DUI and was placed under a 1 year administrative license suspension.
The administrative license suspension was terminated following appeal, as the State failed to provide the client with a hearing within 5 days of her arrest.
Attorney Jon Jensen called into question the officer's ability to actually observe the alleged traffic violation and argued the officer did not have a reasonable suspicion to initiate the stop. Attorney Jensen provided the State with professional photographs of the area of the stop and other evidence to support his position. Consequently, the State dismissed the charge of OVI and the client pled guilty to a minor misdemeanor offense of reckless operation and was fined $50.00 and costs.
