A Doylestown Ohio DUI attorney identifies and pursues defenses for someone accused of OVI in Doylestown, Ohio. In Ohio, a DUI offense is not called DUI or DWI, but is called an OVI. OVI is defined in Ohio Revised Code 4511.19 (R.C. 4511.19) as “operating vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs,” and 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. If the accused was not actually driving but was in the driver’s seat with possession of the keys, the more appropriate charge may be the lesser crime of physical control, as defined in R.C. 4511.194. If the accused was underage and was driving with a concentration of at least .02 percent, but less than .08 percent BAC, the more appropriate charge may be operating a vehicle after underage consumption (OVUAC), sometimes referred to as a “baby DUI.”
