    1. Edleman, Jeffrey: Can you plead to a lesser offense than OVI in Ohio? In some circumstances, a plea bargain of "wet reckless" might be accepted by the prosecution in Ohio. A "wet reckless," or a conviction of reckless driving involving alcohol, is usually made as a result of a plea bargain in which a charge of drunk driving is reduced to a case of reckless driving. A plea bargain of wet reckless might occur when the amount of alcohol is borderline illegal, there was no accident, and the defendant has no prior record. But if there is a subsequent drunk driving conviction, the "wet reckless" is usually considered a prior drunk driving conviction; the resulting sentence can be what's required for a second OVI/DWI conviction. If you are interested in trying to make a plea for a wet reckless, you'll need the help of a lawyer.

    1. Andrews & Pontius: Traffic Law/DUI-Traffic violations can have serious criminal consequences, particularly when a driver is accused of driving under the influence. A conviction on DUI/DWI charges may result in fines, the revocation or suspension of your driver's license, and possible jail time. In addition, your insurance company may increase your rates to an unmanageable level. In defending against an impaired driving charge, you have many rights as a criminal defendant, including the right to cross-examine the witnesses against you, even if they are police officers. An experienced criminal defense attorney can make all the difference in such a difficult case.

    1. Baker, Adam: There are literally hundreds of legal recourses that can help you reduce your sentence to a non-criminal charge or get your case thrown out altogether. Our firm is experienced in this area and can use it to your advantage. If the arresting police officer did not follow due process in any aspect of the arrest, we will find out and, in many cases, use that information to get your case thrown out entirely. This is why it is crucial to have an attorney on your side. You must never go alone to defend yourself against a drunk driving charge.
    2. Stevenson, Andrew: Drunk Driving Drunk Driving OVI / DUI: There are two different criminal charges people usually face with respect to drinking and driving: (1) driving with an alcohol level over the legal limit (.08 for breath and blood; .11 for urine); and (2) driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If you are driving and test over the legal limit you will most likely be charged with both offenses. However, if you do not take a blood-alcohol test, test under the limits, or test positive for drugs, you will be charged with the under the influence offense. There are two different criminal charges people usually face with respect to drinking and driving: (1) driving with an alcohol level over the legal limit (.08 for breath and blood; .11 for urine); and (2) driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If you are driving and test over the legal limit you will most likely be charged with both offenses. However, if you do not take a blood-alcohol test, test under the limits, or test positive for drugs, you will be charged with the under the influence offense. In most cases an effective OVI / DUI defense of these charges begins with a challenge to the constitutionality of the stop, the proper administration of the field sobriety tests (the walk and turn, the one-leg stand, horizontal gaze nystagmus or eye test), the proper administration of your blood-alcohol test, and the reliability of your specific blood-alcohol test. This challenge is accomplished through the filing of a Motion to Suppress and an evidentiary hearing. The second step in defending these cases is centered on trial preparation, collection of favorable defense witnesses, evaluation of officer's report, and cross-examination of the officer. The severity of the penalties associated with conviction vary by the number of times an individual has been convicted of drunk driving / OVI in the last 6 years or within their lifetime. Penalties for a first time offense range from: 72 hours of confinement in jail or a driver intervention program to six months in jail, a $250 - $1,000 fine, and a 6 month to 3 year license suspension. However, the penalties substantially increase for those with prior convictions. If your license has been suspended, you can receive the right to drive to and from work and for other necessary reasons while your case is pending. There is however, a mandatory suspension period of all driving rights that ranges from 15 to 90 days depending upon whether or not you took the alcohol-breath test and the number of prior convictions you may have. Speaking with an experienced OVI / DUI lawyer may help in eliminating the charges you are facing. Areas of Practice * Criminal Defense * Domestic Violence * Drug Crimes * Drunk Driving * DUIDWI More

Implied Consent Law: A driver’s licensed is a privilege, not a right. As a part of that privilege in the state of Ohio, when you for a driver's license, motorists give “implied consent” to field sobriety tests and chemical tests to determine impairment. Should a driver refuse to submit to testing when an officer has reasonable suspicion that the driver is under the influence, the driver risks automatic license suspension along with possible further penalties. In Ohio, the consequences for refusing consent during testing are a mandatory minimum 6-day jail sentence; or three days in jail plus a 72-hour driver intervention program, and a fine, for those with a prior DUI conviction (20-day sentence if it's the second DUI charge in six years).

    2. Joseph Bolek: Defense of DUI, OVI, Traffic and other Criminal, Felony and Misdemeanor Offenses Regarding Driving under the Influence (DUI and OVI) did you know that it is not against the law in Ohio to drink and drive? It is only against the law to drink and drive while having a blood alcohol count of .08% or higher. Did you know that you do not have to submit to a Field Sobriety Test (FST) upon request of the law enforcement officer at the scene of the detention or afterward? There is only a penalty (loss of driving privileges) for refusing to submit to a breath, urine or blood test for alcohol. These types of cases as well as other criminal charges (misdemeanor or felony) can be effectively defended by use of aggressive pretrial discovery and in some cases, depending on the facts, pre trial motions such a Motion to Suppress Evidence so that

    2. Paul Gambrel: Drunk driving is considered a serious offense in all states. The DUI statute in the state where the violation occurred will determine the extent of the punishment for a first-time offender. Generally, a first-time offender convicted of the offense (which is usually considered a misdemeanor) is ordered to pay a fine and may be sentenced to a minimum term of imprisonment. A suspension of his or her driver's license will usually occur as well. There are certain "programs" available to first-time offenders, which allow the defendant's punishment to be decreased under certain circumstances. Further, there are a number of defenses to a charge of drunk driving that an experienced attorney can raise on your behalf. If you cannot afford to hire an attorney, the court will appoint an attorney for you free of charge.

If you or a family member is facing a criminal charge, you should treat it very seriously. Even certain misdemeanors or minor offenses can result in jail time and hefty fines. What's more, the negative consequences of a criminal conviction can last long into the future.
    3. Charles Dunlap: The legal limit for blood alcohol content is .08 in Ohio based upon. This OVI law may seem very low, and it is. Individuals must be increasingly careful about the amount of alcohol they drink. Even one drink can alter your blood alcohol content.

    1. Keith, Godward & Munyar: What is an OVI? In Ohio, this is what the Legislature calls “drunk driving”. OVI stands for operating a vehicle under the influence. You may have also heard the terms; DWI (driving while intoxicated), or DUI (driving under the influence). Commonly OVI’s are related to alcohol, but they can also result from driving while under the influence of any drug of abuse or prescription medication. OVI Questions Generally 1) Should I submit to a breathalyzer test? This is a complicated question. The best answer is; it depends. In general you should not consent to any tests that will give the prosecutor evidence to use against you. This includes any and all field sobriety tests. Specifically, there are times where submitting to a breathalyzer is the best decision. E.g. when you have had nothing to drink, when you were not driving etc…. 2) Am I allowed to refuse Field Sobriety Tests? Yes, the Police Officer cannot force you to take any tests. You should respectfully decline and realize that the entire interaction you are having is being both audio and video recorded. Keep this in mind when you are making choices on how to act during the traffic stop and subsequent arrest. If you would not say or do it in front of a judge in court, then do not say or do it during an OVI stop. 3) What happens after I refuse the tests? Most likely, you will be arrested and taken to the police station for a breathalyzer test. After you refuse that, you will be booked and released to friends or family. Also, expect the Police Officer to be upset with your choice to refuse. Think of it this way, you politely refusing to submit to tests, undermines his ability to secure a possible future conviction. 4) Can I speak to an attorney before deciding? Depends, the officer will not let you speak to an attorney on the roadside before doing the standard field sobriety testing. However, the officer should let you have access to a telephone before deciding to submit to a breath test.
    2. Drew, David : If you have been charged with a DUI, make sure that your rights are protected. Your rights are: To be issued a Miranda warning. " If given a custodial interview." To be informed that the field sobriety tests are optional. To request a blood test. The Government must: Prove that they have reasonable suspicion to pull you over Prove that they have probable cause to arrest for a DUI Prove that the officer followed the proper procedures In strict compliance with the field sobriety test for the following standard roadside tests; Horizontal gaze nystagmus tests. Walk and turn test. One leg stand test.

    3. Billig, Gary: You should consult an attorney for individual advice regarding your own situation. Charges of drunk driving and traffic violations can get costly on many levels, including fines, loss of driving privileges, higher auto insurance, and even jail time. For a first offense, penalties include a mandatory three-day jail sentence, a mandatory six-month license suspension and up to $1,000 in fines. A second offense increases penalties to 10-day mandatory jail stay, a one-year license suspension and a mandatory $1,000 fine. A third offense is even worse — 30 days mandatory minimum jail sentence, a three-year license suspension and a fine of up to $2750. Employment consequences can also result from a criminal record, which can be devastating in today's challenging economy.

  42. Scott, J Y: OVI/DUI Being charged with Operating a Vehicle Under the Influence can be a frightening experience. For many, it is their first encounter with law enforcement and they don't know where to turn. Attorney Jen Scott will take the time to listen to what happened and explain the legal process so that you will understand what to expect. The potential penalties for an OVI are serious and increase with multiple convictions or refusals. The penalties vary greatly based upon the specific circumstances of the stop but some penalties that you or your loved one may face include: Automatic License Suspension (ALS) Mandatory License Suspension Interlock SCRAM "Party Plates" Mandatory Jail Time (Misdemeanor) Mandatory Prison Term (Felony) Vehicle Immobilization or Forfeiture An arrest for OVI can have significant impacts on your personal and professional life. Officers are required to take proper steps when stopping a vehicle for an OVI, including probable cause to perform a traffic stop, probable cause to detain a motorist for suspicion of OVI, properly administering the field sobriety tests as well as the technical requirements for a breath test. As with all encounters with police officers, you have rights that must be protected. Often, the most important of these is the right to remain silent. Though you should always be polite to law enforcement, you do not have to answer all of the questions the officer asks of you, i.e. where are you coming from or have you been drinking tonight?

    3. Mayle, Ray & Mayle: In Ohio, what is commonly called 'DUI' is technically called operating a vehicle while intoxicated, or 'OVI.' This is an area of law all onto itself. OVI is usually a first-degree misdemeanor, but repeat offenders may be subject to felony indictments and the penalties that come with an OVI conviction can be harsh. Possible penalties include jail or prison, large fines, long license suspensions and other expensive, time consuming sentences. Each OVI case is different and cannot be treated in a cookie-cutter fashion. It is always advised to consult an experienced attorney.

    1. Roberts Kelly & Bucio: DUI Many terms are used for OVI, such as driving under the influence, driving while intoxicated, drunk driving and operating a vehicle while intoxicated. DUI Testing Failed breath tests and field sobriety tests are usually the only evidence the officer relies upon to arrest someone and charge them with OVI. However the results of such tests are often invalid because they were conducted improperly. You need a defense attorney who can quickly determine whether testing was done properly. Such charges carry mandatory and immediate suspension of your driver’s license. Mistakes are often made. A conviction of OVI can mean license suspension, jail time as well as fines.

Additionally, your insurance rates can be increased and you may even be shut out from some job opportunities due to your conviction. With the stakes being so high, it’s a wise idea to enlist the help of an attorney who handles DUI cases.
  53. Hubbard
    1. Jeffrey Adler: If you are arrested for a crime, the judge will usually set what is called "bail." Bail is sometimes set, per a schedule, immediately after you are booked for a crime. For more serious crimes, bail may not be set until your arraignment, which is the court date where the charges are read against you and you enter your plea. Bail is the amount of money you are required to pay in order to be able to leave jail during the period between your arraignment and trial. In some cases the judge may deny you any bail, meaning that you will have to stay in jail to await your criminal trial. For example, individuals who commit particularly reprehensible crimes or who are considered to be a high flight risk may be denied bail. In most situations, you are not required to pay the full bail amount, but are instead allowed to post a portion of it, as a "bond." The bond is your promise that you will show up for all required court appearances. There are many different ways in which bond can be posted. The following is a primer on some of those ways.

    4. Jim Skelton: The first move should be obvious... Stop, think, and call a good lawyer as soon as possible. When you are arrested...the State of Ohio is accusing you of committing a crime...something which is punishable...something that might put your liberty at stake and take you away from your family, friends and loved ones. Treat the matter seriously. This is not the time to joke around or play know-it-all. Now, generally, most law enforcement personnel are some of the nicest people you might ever want to meet. However, one of the main functions of their job is to elicit information from you. They may befriend you. They may lie to you. They might trick you. They might even threaten you. What you need to know is that, generally, they are not eliciting this information for your benefit. Law enforcement personnel work for the State of Ohio and that officer is probably looking for information that will help their case AGAINST you.

    1. Roof Law Office: Drunk Driving Law Drunk Driving is a broad term that refers to a more specific charge. These charges include, DUI, DWI, Driving Under the Influence. You can be charged for driving while under the influence of any substance deemed to "impair" your reaction time, such as illegal drugs, prescription medication, marijuana, even over the counter medication. In addition to driving under the influence, you may also be charged for bicycling under the influence or boating under the influence. A DUI charge can be as embarrassing as it is problematic for your driving record, employment, and freedom. A DUI can carry jail time, fines, license suspensions, and high fees at the BMV. Moreover, we realize the practical difficulties a DUI can bring such as an impounded car and personal property and the need for driving privileges. We will fight to have your property returned to you and your driving privileges granted as soon as possible. The law is particularly hard on DUI and OVI repeat offenders. Even if you have a previous DUI or OVI offense on your record, you still have rights. If you have a prior DUI conviction within the past 6 years, you can expect a conviction for a second or subsequent DUI case to carry increased jail time, fines and drivers license suspensions. If you are charged with DUI in Central Ohio and have a prior DUI in any city or state, you need an experienced knowledgeable Central Ohio DUI attorney who will fight to maintain your right to drive and your freedom.

    2. Scott, J Y: The potential penalties for an OVI are serious and increase with multiple convictions or refusals. The penalties vary greatly based upon the specific circumstances of the stop but some penalties that you or your loved one may face include: Automatic License Suspension (ALS) Mandatory License Suspension Interlock SCRAM "Party Plates" Mandatory Jail Time (Misdemeanor) Mandatory Prison Term (Felony) Vehicle Immobilization or Forfeiture An arrest for OVI can have significant impacts on your personal and professional life. Officers are required to take proper steps when stopping a vehicle for an OVI, including probable cause to perform a traffic stop, probable cause to detain a motorist for suspicion of OVI, properly administering the field sobriety tests as well as the technical requirements for a breath test. As with all encounters with police officers, you have rights that must be protected. Often, the most important of these is the right to remain silent. Though you should always be polite to law enforcement, you do not have to answer all of the questions the officer asks of you, i.e. where are you coming from or have you been drinking tonight?
    3. Bartos & Rini: The legislature has allowed the courts to look back 20 years for a Driving While Intoxicated (DUI) and many do not know their drivers license has been suspended by the Child Support Enforcement Agency or after judicial or administration authority. From a minor traffic stop to a major felony, your rights should be protected.
