Sterling DUI Attorney

A Sterling DUI attorney in Wayne County, Ohio handles DUIs, OVIs, BAC cases, physical control cases, and underage consumption DUI cases.  OVI is defined in Ohio Revised Code 4511.19 (R.C. 4511.19), bearing the title “operating vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs.”  The OVI charges can be made up of two separate crimes: (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.  OVI convictions carry a mandatory driver’s license suspension.

Sterling DUI Attorney Not Limited To OVI Cases 


What about those other offenses listed above?  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.

The underage consumption DUI is often referred to as 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.
