Canal Fulton DUI Attorney

A Canal Fulton DUI attorney represents individuals charged with OVI and other traffic offenses in Canal Fulton.  OVI is the short way of saying “operating vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs.”  OVIs can be made up of two potential offenses: (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.  Depending on the number of prior offenses, there are minimum periods of suspension and incarceration set forth under Ohio law.

Canal Fulton DUI Attorney Handles More Than OVI Cases 


A Canal Fulton DUI lawyer will also handle “physical control” cases.  Physical control of a vehicle while under the influence can be charged 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 under Ohio law.  There are essentially no minimum penalties for this offense, but the court must impose some license suspension, even if it is only for a day.

A baby DUI is not as cute as it sounds, but is actually a serious matter with serious consequences.  Operating a vehicle after underage consumption (OVUAC) is an offense that outlaws people under 21 years of age from driving 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 license suspension of 90 days for a first offense, but no minimum period of incarceration.
