In Ohio, being charged with Operating Vehicle Impaired (OVI) carries heavy penalties, which have the potential to impact every area of your life. At the VanNoy Firm, our experienced Troy OVI attorneys understand how these charges can threaten both your personal life and your financial security. With over two decades worth of experience handling these types of cases, we provide the professional legal representation you need to strategize your best course of defense.
OVI laws listed under Section 4511.19 of the Ohio Revised Code authorize law enforcement to cast a wide net in pulling over drivers suspected of OVI. In addition to using OVI checkpoints, officers may use driving behaviors, such as weaving in and out of lanes or problems in maintaining speed, as well as circumstances such as being out in the late night/early morning hours to warrant making a traffic stop.
Under Ohio’s implied consent law, drivers who are pulled over and refuse to submit to blood or urine testing could face a mandatory one year driver’s license suspension. If you do submit and your blood alcohol content (BAC) level is .08 or greater, you could face the following penalties:
For a fourth or subsequent OVI, you could face felony OVI charges, which may include fines in excess of $10,000, jail sentences of three years or more, and revocation of your driving privileges.
If you are a driver under the age of 18 and are found to have a BAC of .02 percent or greater, you could end up being charged with Operating a Vehicle After Underage Consumption (OVUAC). According to the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV), these charges carry severe penalties, which include fines, revocation of your driver’s license, and mandatory drug/alcohol classes. In order to get your license reinstated, you would need to do the following:
