Ohio sheriff's deputy facing third set of drunk driving charges

A sheriff's deputy in Cleveland has been arrested for his third alleged drunk driving offense. The man, who has previous drunk driving convictions dating back to 1994 and 2007, is employed in the transportation unit of the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Department. He was arrested for the alleged drunk driving violation after striking another vehicle during an illegal passing maneuver. Officers say that the defendant failed both field sobriety and breath tests. The defendant is currently on administrative leave from his job.

Many people know that drunk driving charges can have a major impact on their lives, but they may underestimate the effect that the allegations could have on their careers. This is particularly true of those drivers who have been accused of multiple offenses or who have an unusually high blood alcohol concentration behind the wheel. The help of an attorney is key to protecting your future and making sure that your career is not devastated by these allegations.

This man works for the sheriff's department, but other professionals stand to lose even more if they are convicted of drunk driving. Financial professionals, truck drivers, bus drivers and a variety of others may be at an especially high risk for career impacts because of a drunk driving conviction. This is why the assistance of a qualified attorney is absolutely critical in the wake of your drunk driving arraignment.

An arrest for drunk driving does not mean that you are automatically considered guilty. In fact, the courts often leave room for negotiation, allowing defendants the use of an ignition interlock, for example, instead of total license revocation. In some instances, the charges may even be dropped or downgraded depending on the actions of your drunk driving attorney. A DUI charge does not have to ruin your career or your future.
