What if the officer recorded the wrong address and did not record BAC on OVI ticket?
My husband swerved to miss a deer in extreme foggy conditions and was in an accident, which included no other vehicles. He took a breathalyzer when asked but the officer did not record his BAC on the ticket, but he DID site him for an OVI and Failure to Control. Do these errors give him a chance to fight the charges?
Yes and No. Will you beat this OVI, merely because of those two facts, not likely. BUT, those two errors reveal that...
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...
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...
What is the time frame to invoke a suspended jail sentence?
Got suspended 6 month sentence on 2/25/2014. No probation or anything, only to pay fine. Judge now wants me to serve my 6 month sentence as of 2/29/2015. What is the time fram that this judge can hold this sentence over my head? The rest of my life? Judge keeps changing my public defender also, on her liking, not due to motions requesting new counsel or requests to withdrawal. This tiny town legal system is a little baffling to me & Im looking for some outside suggestions. Thank you.
If the judge imposed a fine, and you do not pay the fine, the jail sentence can be ordered into execution. Did the...
Charged with Physical Control in the State of Ohio, seems to be issues with the paperwork. Would like your thoughts please.
Officer responded to a 3rd party call that I was in danger (another motorist saw my wife smack me while I was parked). Asked me where the marks on my face came from and I indicted my wife was overly drunk and after repeated attempts to get her seat belt on, she scratched me a few times. I was given the HGN test, walk test and then placed in the squad car. My spouse was unresponsive due to her BAC and was taken to the hospital. I was given a breathalyzer test then informed I was charged with physical control. I stayed overnight in lockup,released the next day with no paperwork. Later find out my the paperwork was in my spouses purse locked up in jail (she was charged with DV). None of my paperwork has my BAC and I havent been able to acquire an officers statement. Is this normal?
No, the situation that you've presented is not usual, though as you now know first hand, it does happen. The...
