“When I was arrested by the Feds on Drug Conspiracy charges, they told me I was facing mandatory life in federal prison without the possibility of parole. I knew that I was innocent, but I was scared . . . so I knew that I would have to find a lawyer who was not afraid of the Feds and would take my case to trial. I chose Greg Robey because he is a fighter. After over 2 weeks in a federal jury trial, I was found Not Guilty of all charges. My family and I am forever grateful to Mr. Robey.” -L.B., Mansfield, Ohio
A new trend in Ohio is courts ordering the use of alcohol sensor bracelets to monitor a person's alcohol consumption. The bracelet is being ordered in drunk driving and other alcohol-related cases. The bracelet measures an individual's perspiration for alcohol content. It functions in a similar fashion to a breathalyzer machine. If a person consumes alcohol while wearing the device, the monitor will be triggered.
While the device is useful in keeping habitual alcoholics sober, it is by no means foolproof. Like any machine, it is subject to error. A mechanical error can lead to dire consequences for a person who stands accused of drunk driving or an alcohol-related offense. An experienced criminal defense attorney should be familiar with this device and its limitations in order to properly defend his or her client.
