The crime of OVI in Ohio is often referred to as DUI, DWI, drunk driving, driving under the influence, or driving while intoxicated. Ohio defines the offense as operating a vehicle under the influence in Ohio Revised Code 4511.19 (R.C. 4511.19). A Rittman DUI Attorney can identify and pursue defenses for one charged with one of the following offenses in Rittman, Ohio: (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.
