What Is An OVI To A Westfield Center DUI Attorney?

OVI is defined in Ohio Revised Code 4511.19, and is generally divided into 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.  Upon a conviction for either offense, a first time offender would face a minimum license suspension of 180 days and a minimum period of incarceration of 72 hours.  Such minimum penalties increase with a BAC of .17 or more, and for multiple offenders.
