How Can a DUI/OVI Attorney Help You?
Many people ask if having an attorney really can help. The truthful answer is almost always YES. Without speaking with you and reviewing the evidence in your case, we would just be guessing. After a free, no obligation phone consultation, we will be able to tell you how we can help. Give us a call at 614-205-2208.
Police officers and prosecutors are required to do certain things in order to prove the case against you. From the beginning, we will be making sure they have done everything correctly. Mistakes give us a reason to argue for a reduced charge or dismissal.
Fighting a DUI/OVI case is technical. Reasonable suspicion, probable cause, and substantial compliance with testing procedures are all necessary to prove the case against you. Don't just assume they can prove it, hire an attorney to make sure.
What are the Penalties for a DUI/OVI in Ohio?
The potential penalties depend on how many prior offenses you have. If you take a breath, blood, or urine test, prior offenses within 6 years will count against you. If you refuse to take a test to determine your alcohol or drug levels, prior offenses within 20 years will count against you. High-test levels will also increase the potential penalties.
The minimum penalties on a first offense include, 3 days in jail or 72 hours in a driver intervention program, a 6-month license suspension, a $375 fine plus court costs, and 6 points on your license.
