You took a deal to avoid a stronger sentence and conviction. Don't you think you'd lose your job if you were convicted?...
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...
Will a DUI conviction travel from one state to another?
I recieved a DUI charge in Alabama (first time offense) and my driver's licsence was suspended for 90 days, back in 2013. I have since moved to another state and my licsence is up for renewal. When I change my licsense over from an Alabama one to an Ohio one, will that DUI from Alabama still show up on my Ohio driving record?

What are the chances of a 2nd OVI being reduced and to what?
I have my first OVI back in 2013 and haven't gotten into trouble with the law since then until this past weekend.. I was charged with my second OVI, reasonable control and child endangerment.. I wasn't drinking so my BAC levels were .00 but I hit a bowl of spice (k2/synthetic marijuana), blacked out and hopped a curb and was unresponsive until EMS got to me. At the hospital I did agree to a blood test but I'm not too sure how that spice stuff works in your system. Is there any chance the OVI will be dropped down? and if it can what would it be dropped down to?
It is possible to get a reduction depending on the individual prosecutor, judge, and circumstances, but you have some...
Should i plead guilty or not guilty in my ovi even if i blew into the breathalyzer? I got a failure to control too.
I blew a .127 and it was my first offense ever. I don't know what to do because i don't deal with stuff like this ever. I wish I had the money for a good lawyer but the fact is i simply do not, but i called the public defenders office and she said to plead not guilty. I'm just making sure I'm not going to get into trouble for pleading not guilty one hearing and pleading guilty the next? Also if you have an idea what my sentence will be tht would be nice to know. I don't get into trouble ever I'm just scared. Thank you for your time.
I hear this question often from people who don't have a history of appearing in court (which is a good thing)....
