In Ohio, just being charged with driving under the influence, means a mandatory suspension of driving privileges and the possibility of many other penalties. These can include fines, and in some cases prison time. At the Mesaros Law Office, our attorneys put more than three decades of combined experience in the criminal justice system to work for you.
Ohio's terms for driving under the influence charges have changed several times. This charge has been called "OMVI," for "Operating a Motor Vehicle under the Influence, "DUI," or "Driving Under the Influence," and is now referred to as "OVI". Other states have used the term "DWI" (Driving While Intoxicated).
Ohio's penalty scheme for these offenses is known as a graded system, in which prior record and breath test readings influence the penalties. Under this system the penalties range from a minimum mandatory 3 day jail sentence to a mandatory prison sentence.
In addition, anyone arrested on a drunk-driving charge suffers a mandatory license suspension. There is a 15-day period in which you are not allowed any driving privileges. After that period, a judge can grant driving privileges during the period in which your case is pending
