Ohio Mayor’s Courts, including the Grandview Heights Mayor’s Court, are not courts of record and are not authorized to conduct jury trials. However, if a defendant charged with a DUI in Dublin would like a jury to hear his or her case, then your attorney can assist you with transferring the case to the Franklin County Municipal Court. Depending on the facts of your case, it may be best in your situation to keep your case in the Mayor’s Court, or it may be best to transfer the case to Franklin County. That is a strategic question you should discuss with your attorney.
At Riddell Law, we consult with our clients and advise whether it is best based on the facts of each individual case to have the case heard in the Grandview Heights Mayor’s Court, or to transfer the case to the Franklin County Municipal Court.
After your first court appearance (which is called your “arraignment”), Mr. Riddell will continue to gather information about the facts of your case, evaluate possible flaws in the prosecution’s case, and negotiate with the prosecutor for a favorable resolution of your case. For example, we will examine all aspects of your OVI case to determine whether the arresting officer properly issued all required warnings, properly administered all of the roadside field sobriety tests, and performed the search, tests and arrest lawfully.
