Wooster DUI Attorney

A Wooster DUI attorney handles the following types of cases:  DUI, OVI, driving under suspension, and other traffic offenses.  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.

Wooster DUI Attorney Handles More Than Just OVI Cases 


Physical control of a motor vehicle occurs when one is in the driver’s seat of a vehicle with possession of the keys, and the person is under the influence or drugs, alcohol or a combination of them, or has a BAC as defined in the OVI statute (R.C. 4511.19).  There are essentially no minimum penalties for this offense, but the court must impose a class 7 suspension, which must consist of some time.

A baby DUI is not as cute as it sounds, but is actually a serious matter with serious consequences.  Operating a vehicle after underage consumption (OVUAC) is an offense that outlaws people under 21 years of age from driving 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.   A conviction for this offense carries a minimum license suspension of 90 days for a first offense, but no minimum period of incarceration.
