In Ohio, it is against the law to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent or higher. A BAC of 0.17 percent or greater is considered a high-tier result, and additional penalties are possible. Moreover, individuals who are under 21 years of age cannot operate a motor vehicle with a BAC that is higher than 0.02 percent. Any of these actions can result in a charge of driving under the influence (DUI) or operating while visibly impaired (OVI).
If a police officer pulls you over, and your BAC is determined to exceed the legal limit, you can be arrested right on the spot. If you have been arrested or charged with DUI or OVI in Ohio, you may be facing serious criminal penalties, including fines and, in some instances, even jail time.

Being arrested for a DUI can be a truly scary experience. An individual can be arrested for DUI in either of the following circumstances:
When it comes to proving DUI, the government has the burden of presenting proof beyond a reasonable doubt in order to convict you. Because this is a high burden of proof, an experienced local DUI attorney may be able to successfully challenge the evidence and arguments of the prosecutor for a dismissal or an acquittal.
If you are ultimately convicted of DUI or OVI, you will likely be facing serious criminal penalties. Possible penalties for a DUI conviction include the following:
The penalties can also increase if you have prior DUI convictions on your record.

Our lives can change in an instant and if you are faced with a legal challenge, call the VanNoy Firm!
