Dalton DUI Attorney

A Dalton DUI attorney provides aggressive representation for individuals accused of OVI in Dalton, Ohio.  OVI is defined in Ohio as “operating vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs.”  OVI cases typically consists 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.

Another variation of OVI is operating a vehicle after underage consumption (OVUAC), which  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.
