We are proud to report that Attorney Douglas Riddell obtained a not guilty verdict for a client today after a 2 day OVI jury trial in Lancaster, Ohio.
Our client was pulled over at 2:44 AM for having expired tags. Upon pulling him over, the officer testified that he believed our clients eyes were glassy and that he smelled an odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the vehicle. Our client submitted to a series of field sobriety tests. However, the field sobriety tests were conducted out of view of the dash camera. Our client refused to submit to a breath test.
Our client testified at trial. After a two-day trial, the jury returned a NOT GUILTY verdict on all charges.
