DUI Penalties & DUI Defense

In Ohio, every DUI conviction (also known as OVI) carries with it a mandatory jail term.  Minimum sentences range between three (3) to 120 days, depending on the number of prior offenses and the level of alcohol at which you tested (low test vs. high test).  Maximum sentences range between six (6) months in jail up to five (5) years in prison.  Understand Ohio’s DUI penalties.

While every conviction has a mandatory jail term, in many situations jail can be avoided.  Depending on the facts of your case, a driver intervention program (DIP) and/or a term of house arrest can be ordered instead of serving time behind bars.

It is important to know exactly what ovi penalties you are facing before entering a court room.  Time is NOT on your side.  Contact an aggresive dui lawyer.
