Brown Law Office OVI/DUI News

The Ninth District Court of Appeals recently held that it was a violation of a defendant’s speedy trial rights for a trial judge to take 535 days to rule on a motion to suppress. In State v. Reppucci, 2017-Ohio-1313, the Court found that it was unreasonable for the trial court to take 535 days to rule on a motion to suppress that did not involve complex issues.  As a consequence, the Court ruled that the defendant’s OVI conviction should be vacated.  A link to the decision can be found here.
