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...
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...
There is an assault charge, OVI refusal and criminal damaging. The criminal damaging will be dismissed because there is no evidence to prove that I committed the crime but I missed a court date thinking it had been moved with the other charges that were moved to a new date and now there is a warrant for my arrest. How long will the warrant be good and how long does the county have to prosecute.
Because you failed to show, the speedy trial time stopped running so there is no limit on the time they have to bring...
I was recently put on probation for some minor drug possession charges that stemmed from a routine traffic stop (marijuana and a few hydrocodone pills). One of the terms of my probation is complete abstention from drugs AND alcohol, despite the fact that the arrest had nothing to do with alcohol. This means that if I blow even a .01 during a breathalyzer test, it would violate the terms of my probation. My questions are: if a cop pulls me over for speeding, will him seeing that I am on probation be reason enough to breathalyze me? If so, is it likely that he *will* breathalyze me--even if I don't display signs of drunkenness?
It's very unlikely you would be breathalyzed unless you displayed signs of being impaited. Of course, if you haven't...
My daughter a 19 year old KSU Sophomore went to Cleveland to celebrate the return of LeBron James during Cav's Home Opener last week. The establishment they were in was elbow to elbow so she and her friend who is 21stepped outside. Undercover police gave her friend a ticket for open container and told my daughter she would be receiving a citation for underage drinking in the mail. Why didn't they give her the citation then and there? What should she expect in court? The fine? The time? How much $$$ for a diversion program? How much $$ to retain an attorney? How much to expunge later if she cannot afford the attorney and diversion program?
Who knows why the police do what they do. Maybe they just ran out of tickets. I'm sure they wrote a lot that night. The...
