Drunk Driving Defense in Ohio: OVIs and Their Consequences
In Ohio, DUIs are often referred to as OVIs (operating a vehicle under the influence). The terms may vary regarding the charges, but the penalties for the traffic infraction are similar. Your first and second offenses bring the possibility of jail time, serious financial penalties and the chance of a suspended license. Third and fourth offenses within a six-year period also add the possibility of a required interlock ignition device. Work with an attorney to improve your chances of receiving sentencing that is easier to bear.
Representation for Drug Offenses
If you’re arrested on drug charges, contact an attorney before you talk to anyone. A drug offense could lead to dismissed charges, a plea agreement, a jury trial or a visit to the judge without a jury. Whether you have been charged with possession of marijuana or brought up on drug trafficking charges, you’ll need an attorney working on your defense.
