I live in Ohio, and had a charge reduced from an OVI to OVUAC. I'm 21 now, and I am finding myself somewhat in a permanent mess. After this while mess is over, I'm still paying the price forever. I now have a permanent criminal record that can never be expunged, and have to avoid any applications that make you list misdemeanors. Is there nothing I can do?
Have you discussed this with an experienced criminal defense attorney in the Akron area? That's what you should do? I...
I am a Canadian citizen living in the United States as a legal resident (with green card). I am being charged with a DUI.
Will this DUI charge (first time) that I am guilty of result in deportation, exclusion from admission to the United States, denial of naturalization, or other consequences? What problems will this cause crossing the border into Canada? Thank You!
I recommend hiring a qualified immigration attorney in your area who is familiar with the local criminal code to assist...
Last July, I plead guilty to an OVUAC. I know it cant be expunged in Ohio, but I plan on moving. What's the number of years it takes before it can be expunged in another state? Also, this did not appear on my criminal record, only driving record. I checked the court website where the files are public. Is this wrong?
Because it happened here it would need to be expunged here in Ohio and as you know that is not possible. As far as why...
I'm 20, and plead down to a reduced Underage DUI charge. This does not appear on my criminal record, but traffic record, right? What's the difference? Also, could I ever have this sealed or expunged? When?
You cannot get a DUI or any other traffic record expunged in Ohio though this is possible in several other states....
I am 20 years old and I was pulled over recently for a broken tail light by a small police department. I was drinking, so I was given a field sobriety test, which I thought I did fine on, then I was arrested. What I was charged with was an OVI and Possession of Alcohol by a minor. I was polite with the officers, and took the breathalyzer test. I blew a .107. What are the chances of this being reduced if I get a lawyer? I also have no prior record. After research, I found out about the six month suspension and the 400 dollar fine from the courts, plus the 475 dollar reinstatement fee from the BMV. That's a lot of cash. What are the chances of the OVI being reduced? Also, what about the possession charge and the ALS suspension. Thanks in advance!
Get ready to pay even more than that! I've attached a link that estimates that the average cost of a DUI is $10,000.
Hello, my neighbor is facing his third drinking and driving related charge. His first was 5 years ago and was reduced to physical control. 2 years ago he received his first OVI conviction and they dropped the high BAC charge (blew .25). He's in court again with a high BAC (.206). I really want to let the judge know that my neighbor has a problem and he will not change unless he does some jail time and doesn't get off easy this time. Would the judge actually read my letter? Thank you!
Can you write the letter? Yes. The Judge will need to give a copy of it to the defendant's lawyer. Assume that both...
