A Sharon Center DUI attorney represents individuals charged with OVI and other traffic offenses in Sharon Center. OVI is the acronym for “operating vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs,” and such cases typically consist 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.
