Expunging criminal record - OVI
I am aware that an OVI conviction is going to be on your drivers record for life. Is the criminal part of this conviction able to be sealed/expunged/pardoned? If the OVI is reduced to Physical Control or Reckless Driving, could either of those be sealed/expunged/pardoned?
In ohio, once you have an OVI conviction you are precluded from have a record sealed. If you get a reduced charge, and...

Can my breathalyzer test results be suppressed?
I was charged with an ovi and upon arrival at the station was asked if I would agree to take a breath test for bac. After weighing the options of refusal and consent, I asked the officer if I had to take a breath test or I could instead do the blood test. He did not give me the option to take the blood test and I then took the breath test and blew a .165. I also only blew once and I've heard that most states require two separate breath tests, using the lower score. Do I have grounds for the suppression of the breath test results?
Your breath test may be suppressed for a number of reasons that might not be immediately apparent. Many states do...
I was on probation for 3 years with possible 2 year extension , 3 years are up but they didn't extend. Am I on probation or not?
I also owe restitution but my probation officer isn't really enforcing it. Looked on court docket and no mention of extension. Looked on co-defendant docket his probation officer put in extensive for 2 more years to pay restitution. My 3 years is up yesterday with no word of extension, can they file extension after 3 year time frame? Am I off probation? I haven't spoke to my officer cause I don't want to remind him that 3 years is up and he file extension. Any suggestions?
The first thing I would suggest is that you pay the restitution. Most courts will not terminate a probation until the...

The paper went undetected by police officers. It took three blows to get a reading.
The officer's are supposed to observe the subject for 20 minutes prior to a test to make sure there is nothing in the...
My finance was charged in Lake County with a third degree felony OVI with a specification.. He recieved 8 years with no accident
My finance was charged in Lake County with a third degree felony OVI with a specification.. He recieved 8 years with no accident and this is my 7th OVI in 20 years.. the Court gave him an appellate attorney and she filed on the fact that he recieved an excessive sentence.. I filed a 26(B) application stating that the Specification under KLEMBUS out of 8th district violated Equal protection and should be removed.. The prosecutor responded stating that he was charged with 4511.19(A)(1)(a) but was sentenced under 4511.19(G)(1)(D) however none of the record states that. the sentencing journal entry says 4511.19(A)(1)(a) and since the Court speaks through the journal entry is he not right that he is charged and sentenced under this? Also the appellate Court denied his application stating that he was charged with (G)(1)(D) as well which leads us to believe that they never read his appeal but only the prosecutors.. I am now filed with the Supreme court and received an opposition from the prosecutor stating that his case is different from Klembus because he was charged with the (G)(1)(d) and not (A)(1)(a) as he was.. but his journal entry says different and there is nothing n the transcript or anywhere that states (G)(1)(d). What do I do?
I am extremely confused as you jump between your fiance being charged but this being your 7th OVI in 20 years and you...
