Facing DUI & OVI charges in Ohio

Operating a Vehicle Impaired (OVI), formerly called Driving Under the Influence (DUI), is a serious charge under Ohio laws. If convicted, the penalties are strict and may include up to a year of jail time for just the first offense.

The severity of the punishment for OVI in Ohio hinges on the circumstances of the arrest. Generally, a higher blood alcohol content (BAC) results in stricter punishments. However, a driver may be charged with OVI even for a BAC of less than the legal limit of .08 percent. In addition to the criminal penalties, Ohio drivers face serious consequences regarding their insurance policies. Premiums tend to increase significantly after a policyholder has been charged with OVI.

All this boils down to the need for sound and experienced legal representation when you face an OVI charge. Stubbins, Watson & Bryan Co., L.P.A. routinely represents clients with this charge and can help you find the best defense for your situation.
