Addressing OVI Concerns
Driving under the influence (DUI), known in Ohio as operating a vehicle under the influence (OVI), has a range of penalties that get more severe with each conviction. Your first OVI offense due to alcohol or drugs, including prescription medications, is considered a first-degree misdemeanor. Punishments may include:
- Three days in jail or an alternate program
- Driver’s license suspension
If you get a second OVI within 10 years of your first violation, you face increased fines, license suspension, and a longer time in jail, up to 20 days. A third OVI offense can get you a maximum of one year in jail. The lawyers at Johnson & Core LLP are skilled at reducing or eliminating DUI offense charges for clients and can strive to help you, too.
