A Burbank DUI attorney provides aggressive representation for individuals accused of OVI in Burbank, Ohio. Ohio refers to DUI as operating vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, otherwise known as OVI. OVI cases can be made up of two separate charges: (1) the OVI charge, which alleges that the person operated a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, a drug of abuse, or a combination of them; and (2) the BAC charge, which usually alleges that the person operated a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or more, which is determined by a breath sample, or an equivalent amount by blood serum or plasma or urine, as well as levels of various drugs. The statute provides for a minimum driver’s license suspension of 180 days and a minimum period of jail or equivalent incarceration of 72 hours upon a conviction for an OVI or BAC charge. Such minimum penalties increase with a BAC of .17 or more, and prior convictions for OVI or BAC.
Other OVI-Related Offenses Defended By Burbank DUI Attorney
There are a few lesser versions of OVI that have smaller or no minimal penalties, but can still result in penalties similar to that of an OVI. The first is physical control of a vehicle while under the influence, which occurs when one is in the driver’s seat of a vehicle with possession of the keys, and the person is under the influence or drugs, alcohol or a combination of them, or has a BAC as defined in the OVI statute. There are essentially no minimum penalties for this offense, but the court must impose a driver’s license suspension consisting of some time. The second is sometimes referred to as a baby DUI, but is more formally known as operating a vehicle after underage consumption (OVUAC). This law makes it illegal for persons under 21 years of age to drive a vehicle with a concentration of .02 percent, but less than .08 percent by weight of alcohol by whole blood or breath, or with an equivalent amount by blood serum or plasma or urine. A conviction for this offense carries a minimum driver’s license suspension of 90 days (a class 6 suspension) for a first offense, but no minimum period of incarceration.
