No Jail – Drunk Driving – Hit and Run
At the onset of this case, there was a very real possibility that our client was going to be sent to jail. The judge in this case was less than pleased with our client’s conduct, and straight out stated to ur client that he should be going to jail.
Luckily for our client, we were able to convince the judge to show some leniency, and probation was ordered. Our client didn’t have to spend a single day in jail.

Canton OWI Lawyer
After leaving a bar, our client stopped to pump some gas. Once they finished filing up, they accidentally backed into a poll at the station, the poll was damaged . Embarrassed that they backed into a pull, and knowing full well that he may be too drunk to drive he fled the scene.
Upon fleeing the scene onto the roadway, he cut off another vehicle that couldn’t slow down and smashed into him. One bad decision lead to another; he raced home and hid, except that the woman who hit him followed him home and called the police.
When the police arrived our client admitted to drinking and driving. His blood alcohol level was over the legal limit and the police officer arrested him.
Even with these terrible facts we were able to get the charge reduced, which meant that our client would keep his driver license. We also saved him points on his license that would help with his insurance. He also saved well over a thousand dollars in fines, and as mentioned above, he didn’t spend a day in jail.
