Chardon Law

I will be moving out of state here in the next few days, and since my license is still valid up until near the end of this month I was curious. Would I legally be able to obtain a license out of state, and if so, would it stay valid or be suspended as well? Also, on the notice of suspension it has both FRA Suspension for 3 years and a Mandatory Suspension for 3 months. Does this mean the actual suspension is only 3 months and for the rest of the time I have to carry SR-22 insurance, or am I unable to drive the entire time?
You can try. So long as you are not under suspension when you apply for the license in another state you can legally...
Recently I went to renew my Ohio driver's license and to my surprised was told that PA has placed a block on my OH license for an incident that occured 22 years ago. The incident was under age drinking on a college campus. I paid all costs/fines at the time and left the university. However, PennDot is telling me now that my license should have been suspended and they show no record of any credits/time for this suspension. I'm not and have never had a PA driver's license. Also, previous 4+ times that I renewed my license never had a problem. Questions. 1. Can PA suspend my OH license? 2. What legal recourse do I have to get block removed? Thanks
Ohio does not have a suspension for conviction of underage consumption, I can't speak on PA laws. You should check...
I was sitting in car after bar closed with a friend listening to music very loud- I was tipsy. The car was in parked position. my friend was in passenger seat- Cop pulled behind car and question me drinking - I admitted to drinking as I didn't want to lie he took both of our drivers liscenced back to car- had me get out of car talked to me told me it was wrong to be sitting in car even if im not driving. He did not do breath test OR any sobriety testing. I did NOT refuse tests- the cop simply did not do them. He did not give me a written warning but told me to find a ride to take me home. he gave our liscence back . Can I still get summoned to court I am SO scared.
You CAN, but it's almost guaranteed that you won't. Without FST's, a breath test or an observation of the vehicle...
I was sitting in my car after the bar closed with a friend I was definitely tipsy ; listening to music. with the car on . but not moving. cops pulled behind looked at our liscence in his car but gave them back. Had me step out of the car - sternly talked to me about my drinking and if I should be driving home I said I probably shouldn be . he never did breath test, sobriety testing or ANYTHING and didn't give me a citation or any paperwork at all. I am still worried I could get charged. I call the police office told her I got pulled over by a bar to look me up she told me if I didn't get ticketed there I wasn't going to get anything mailed to me either this was in Brunswick ohio . she didn't look my name up though ; should I stop worrying? im afraid to be summons to court
It sounds like you're in the clear. Be more careful next time and get a cab!
His liscence through the court was suspended for 6mo and his CDL was suspended for a yr. He was told if he got an ID it would void the CDL and he would have to take the test again
Yes, you can obtain a "temporary ID" through the Ohio BMV. If you ask for a "State" ID it will cancel your license and...
Double Jeopardy?? My reasoning is based on single criminal episode. "The order of dismissal concludes that in pleading to the civil traffic infraction, Knowles admitted an essential fact necessary for proof of the DUI charge: that Knowles was in control of the vehicle for both offenses. Thus, Grady v. Corbin, 495 U.S. 508, 110 S.Ct. 2084, 109 L.Ed.2d 548 (1990) bars the subsequent criminal prosecution. The order notes that characterization of the two proceedings as civil or criminal is not a determinative factor for purposes of double jeopardy analysis. See United States v. Halper, 490 U.S. 435, 109 S.Ct. 1892, 104 L.Ed.2d 487 (1989)."
No, pleading to a seat belt violation does not in any possible way bar a subsequent prosecution for OVI.
I was in an accident five months ago. I told the officer I had been drinking six hours before the accident. The officer had my blood drawn and just recently charged me with serious injury while under the influence. The tests came back as .137 and I don't see how this can be possible. All the online BAC calculators show that I would have had to drink a lot more to be at that level six hours later. Why would the officer wait 5 months to charge me and are the tests legal if I had an IV in my arm during the test?
A blood draw is going to be more accurate than an online calculator.
