Troy OVI Charges and Penalties

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:

  • First Offense OVI: Fines up to $1,075, mandatory minimum jail time of 72 hours, and license suspension up to three years;
  • Second Offense OVI: Fines up to $1,625, mandatory jail sentence up to six months, license suspension up to five years, and 90 day vehicle impoundment;
  • Third Offense OVI: Fines up to $2,750, mandatory jail sentence up to one year, license suspension up to ten years, and mandatory alcohol treatment.  

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.

OVUAC Charges In Ohio

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:

  • Retake your driver’s license test,
  • Attend remedial driver instruction;
  • Pay all associated BMV fees;
  • Maintain an SR-22 insurance bond on your vehicle.
