I was in an accident and the cop said I could do the pee test at the hospital after doing the PAS on the scene....which came out .134. He said the results would be back in 3 wks. and they would go from there. I opted to take the pee test results. I have not heard a word from anyone since then. How long after the incident does the cop have to issue a citation? This was investigated by Medina County Ohio Sheriff's Department.

The police report has the wrong dates in dui case in OHIO. No blood test was done. Can the report be used in trail?
This concerns my son. The police report dates are wrong in several places and on one document off by 4 months, another one is month before the incident. Can they use these documents in a court trail for DUI. I reviewed the walk and talk on a video....stood on one leg with no problem. He refuse a blood test and said he would do any other type of testing. He ask for an to speak to an attorney several times ... it is in the police report. The police left at the hospital, did not bring to the police station, did not finger print him under we drove back from MO (590 miles one way). The finger printed him when we drove back for his court appearance. Pleaded not-guilty. The Canton police seem more interest in giving him a citation and impounding his car.
The things that you mention can be important in defending your son's case. However, they are not a "silver bullet"...
A friend of mine has 1 underage consumption, 1 possession of pot, and two underage OVI's. how will this effect future employment
He is now 21 and almost done with probation for his last OVI. He's had steady employment and and good grades in school. Going for a degree Mechanical Engineering.
Unfortunately, you cannot expunge OVIs. So you have to deal with it. I think if the person can show that he is a good...
From talking with friends and others who have been given an OVI, I have some things working for me. First, the officer pulled me over on suspicion based on me riding close to the white line (passenger side), and occasionally touching it. According to the officer, I did not go over the white line, but I was close up on it, and it was enough for probable cause. Second, I blew a BAC level of .13 at the scene of the crime, but they did not have me blow at the station. Third, I was never read my Miranda rights. My own personal research demonstrates this is common practice for DUI/OVI charges, but what about drug charges? I was asked questions and never read my rights. My goal through the case is to get charges removed from my record. Not worried about fines and punishments - just my record.
Yes. You should hire an attorney. You may have defenses, and an attorney would be in the best position to examine all...
I got my dui last night at 6 am because my car was parked on the side of a suburban road, asleep, with light vomit on my clothes. I don't remember stepping into the car and I don't remember taking a blood test but I scored a really high blood alcohol content level, that I was to the emergency room. Should I plead no contest or get a lawyer?
You should hire an attorney or apply for the public defender. Even as a juvenile an OVI can carry serious consequences....
