Massillon DUI Attorney

When one is accused of DUI in Massillon, that person will need the services of a Massillon DUI attorney.  In Ohio, a DUI is technically called an OVI, which stands for operating a vehicle under the influence.  OVI is defined in Ohio Revised Code 4511.19 and typically consist 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.  There are a series of minimum penalties depending on the number of prior DUIs the accused may have.  If the accused was not driving but was in the driver’s seat with control of the keys while under the influence or with the BAC as set forth above, that person may face charges for physical control of a vehicle while under the influence.  There are essentially no minimum penalties for this offense, but the court must impose a class 7 suspension, which must consist of some time.
