Jared talks about the realities of federal prison and not having any control of your life, then what house arrest and probation were like.

041 – The Blinsky Chronicles -10- Remember the Heroes



Who are you? Who were you before? Who will you become?

Before Agent X, before the Nemesis, Jared Blinsky was so moved by the events of 9/11 that in 2002 he created the annual Ride for Pride that has been taking place in central Ohio ever since. It’s primary purpose was to honor the men and women who served our country, and it peacefully brought together very diverse groups of bikers, including the Axemen, the Gunslingers, the Outlaws and B.A.C.A.. The ride grew each year to create the Ohio Fallen Heroes Memorial in Sunbury, Ohio, honoring all Ohio military killed in the war on terrorism.

Fast-forward to 2009 when Jared has been caught as “the ringleader” of an extensive local grow operation and has pled guilty to charges that carry a minimum 5-years federal prison sentence.  Will the judge be motivated to override the mandatory minimum? Wait til you hear the rest of the story…

The guys talk mitigation, throwing the horns, sentencing hearings, 51k, and adding color to the space-time continuum.

040 – Blinsky Chronicles-9-Meet Your Nemesis



After pleading guilty to a federal crime, dealing with the pre-sentencing interview and report comes next. The probation officer writes a report that is meant to help the judge decide sentencing. But what if your probation officer doesn’t like you?

Jared talks frankly with Steve and Jeff about how his dyslexia and ADHD adversely affected this meeting. The guys talk coping strategies, knowing what’s in your checking account, allocution, the importance of really getting to know your client – and how to get a judge to look up at you over their glasses.

039 – The Blinsky Chronicles-8-Velvet Curtains and Constitutional Rights



Ever wondered what it would be like to be processed into a federal detention center, waiting prosecution? What federal court is like? Or what it would feel like if given the choice to give up some of your constitutional rights – for the rest of your life – in exchange for a few extra years of freedom?

In this eighth episode of The Blinsky Chronicles, Jared talks with the guys about brown paper bag socks, going from being the tough guy to asking God to walk with him for whatever came next, and the day he met Steve Palmer in person for the first time – and Steve’s surprising advice to Jared. “As you said it, you laid a hand on my shoulder, you looked into my eyes……and that made me breathe…”

037 – DUI 360–#9–PBTs and Aussie Fraud



Are portable breath tests (PBTs) reliable? When are they used? Can you just say “no thank you” to one?

What if the people who were wearing guns and badges had the ability to fake the test results that could help land you in jail? Sound unbelievable? That’s exactly what was discovered in Australia recently, where law enforcement officers faked over 258,000 breath tests in five years.

In this intro episode on breath tests, Steve, Jeff and Jared also discuss crazy people in New Jersey, constitutional rights, whether eating late night at Taco Bell constitutes probable cause, making the cover of Busted magazine, why Australia isn’t so awesome, the corrupting nature of power, and how we love the checks and balances in the American system.

035 – DUI 360–#8–Hop Scotch on One Leg



Hey Kids! More fun with SFSTs! Are you down with the OLS? Listen as ‘Officer Jeff’ tests Jared by the book – as in, the actual manual that law enforcement uses when they pull someone over in a traffic stop. Standardized Field Sobriety Tests, or SFSTs, can be challenging for most of us on a good day.  We’ve previously talked Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (the pen test) and Walking the Line. In this episode we drop some knowledge about the OLS, or the One Leg Stand – the third horse of the SFST apocalypse.

Steve, Jeff and Jared also talk Dirtbag Mondays, flossing, Steve Martin and “The Man with Two Brains”, riding on your rims, swaying, raising arms for balance, the “acceleration clause” and other cool dance moves, and the Smartie defense. And we ask the question, is the goal to be accurate, or to just “secure a conviction?”   You might be surprised by what the NHTSA manual actually says..

Have your own experience with a Field Sobriety Test? Tell us about it – we love stories! Have questions or comments? Send them to podcast@ohiolegaldefense.com. We will keep your identity private unless you tell us otherwise, but would love to share your stories – and answer your questions – in upcoming episodes!
