Ohio Woman Has DUI Thrown Out

Jodirae B. Brown of Cortland, Ohio had her DUI conviction overturned by the 11th District Court of Appeals. The reason cited was a lack of sufficient evidence to warrant the traffic stop that lead to the arrest.

Brown was charged with drunk driving three years ago by a Liberty police officer for allegedly driving ‘somewhat erratic’. The officer said he stopped Ms. Brown around 2:00 am for a marked lane violation, though in cross-examination at a suppression hearing held in Girard Municipal Court he admitted that Brown had stayed entirely in her lane.

The court ruling stated, “In this case, the record does not reveal any [indication] of erratic driving behind some modest weaving by Mrs. Brown in her own lane of traffic.” The Ohio DUI charge against Brown was ordered returned to the Municipal Court so they can proceed in line with the Appeals Court ruling.
