In the latest installment of For the Defense, Attorney Brad Koffel chats
with psychologist, Dr. David Lowenstein, about stress, sleep, DUI cases,
and sex crimes. Since the 1990s, Attorney Koffel has handled thousands
of DUI cases in central Ohio. On the show, he discusses how prescription
pills influenced these charges and how addiction continues to be a factor
in DUI cases today.
Koffel and Lowenstein also explore the amount of stress our society is
under as a result of being over-connected by technology, over-thinking,
and receiving too much information. Lowenstein talks about the complicated
issues he is seeing in his office and asks us to consider: “When
is good enough, good enough?”
Finally, Lowenstein shares what he discovers when Koffel sends clients
for psych evaluations, and how someone’s poor mental health can
land them in potentially criminal situations.
