Fighting Ohio's DUI Penalties
The particulars of each OVI or DUI case are always unique, as are the defenses that need to be built in order to beat those charges. Aggravating factors such as allegations of leaving the scene of the accident, or being in an accident that causes injury, would all complicate matters. However, no criminal law challenge is too difficult for our proven trial attorney. We can provide the representation and counsel you need, communicating clearly with you throughout so that you know what to expect and how to be prepared.
What potential penalties could you face for a simple DUI charge?
- First-time DUI: With no prior convictions on your record, you could still face up to 6 months of jail time, getting fined $1,075 fine, and up to 3 years of driver's license suspension
- Second DUI: This too could mean 6 months in jail, but also getting fined $1,625 and hit with up to 7 years without your driver's license
- Third DUI: A conviction could mean up to 1 year in jail, getting fined $2,750, and losing your license for 12 years.
