What should I do (OVI/Paraphanillia charges)?
at 11:30 pm i was pulled over by a state trooper for suspicious driving (I stopped at a green light with my turn signal on). I did not know the area as i've never been there, two people in the car were from there and one told me to turn while the other told me to go straight (which is why i stopped) I've got a clean record not even a ticket. I had smoked earlier that day but was no longer affected the trooper smelled weed and ended up searching my car finding a used bowl. It was someone elses in the car but when he asked whose it was i was so scared i said mine. i also had trouble counting on the sobriety test but i'm bad with numbers because i have mild dislexyia and it was cold out so i was shaking. I'm a college student and i was three hours away from my campus in Hardin county, OH
Many factors such as age, prosecutor discretion, what judge you have, whether witnesses are credible all matter and...
So I got an OVI the other day and I didn't blow....now I don't know what to do.
Should I get an attorney ? Should I use the public defender ?
You should get an experienced aggressive OVI attorney. You are facing mandatory jail and up to three year license...
What are common consequences for failing a drug test for THC on SCRAMx House arrest monitoring.
Scramx is an electronic alcohol monitor while also monitoring house arrest. I failed my test today, and I get off house arrest (scramx) on May 2. Interested in knowing possible consequences for this mess up. Thanks!
When folks violate the terms of "house arrest" the judge will usually just send you to jail.
I received a DUI in Ohio 9 years ago while in college. Is it possible to now ask to have this reduced to a lesser charge?
I received a DUI 9 years ago while in college. Since that charge took place, I graduated with a bachelor's degree, went on to get a masters degree, have been employed in a business career the last 8 years, and have started a family. I have no other criminal charges on my record. What would be my chances of having this reduced to a lesser charge? Is this even a possibility in Ohio?
A DUI is not a charge that can be expunged in Ohio. In my area of the State, I do NOT know of any Judge's allow a 9...
I used clonazepam and it made me intoxicated 3 days later and I didn't know I was going to be not able to drive car properly
three days later so I got OVI with blood for clonazepam do I have a chance to argue that I only thought I was gonna feel it for a couple of hours I didn't use anything in between
I am not licensed in Ohio, but my answer is based on California law, where I am licensed. The answer would be no. It...
I didn't blow. Odds of a reduced charge? I'm in real estate. I'll loose everything if I can't drive. No priors of any kind.
I made an illegal u turn. When asked I did say I had a couple beers. Not sure how field sobriety went, I told the officer I had a knee injury which is true. I know I had trouble on the one leg part. Not surprising with a torn knee. I didn't blow when asked. They said I would loose my license for a year if I didn't. Pretty intimidating but every attorney always says don't blow. Any advice would help. I'm 40, no priors. I'm not gonna lie. I was in AA until this recent relapse, I can't lie about that part. The recently ex chief of police had known me my whole life and knows I've been in AA if that helps
Contact an attorney asap, certainly before your next court appearance. You are suspended for a year by the BMV, but you...
