Sharon Township DUI Attorney

A Sharon Township DUI attorney represents individuals charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, otherwise known as OVI, as well as a number of other traffic offenses and related charges.  OVI cases usually are made up 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.  For a first time offense, the court must suspend the offender’s driver’s license for a minimum of 180 days and incarcerate the individual for a minimum period of of 72 hours.  The mandatory penalties increase with higher test results and repeat offenses.

Sharon Township DUI Attorney Not Limited To OVI Cases 


If the car was not moving, but the person was sitting in the driver’s seat with possession of the keys, that person may find himself or herself charged with physical control of a vehicle while under the influence.  There are essentially no minimum penalties for this offense, but the court must impose some driver’s license suspension.

A Sharon Township DUI lawyer will be prepared to handle a baby DUI, which makes it illegal for one under 21 years old 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.  The minimum suspension of one’s driver’s license is less than that of an OVI and there is no minimum period of incarceration.
