Being arrested for OVI/DUI can be a frightening and frustrating experience to face, which can result in grave consequences.
The best defense to an OVI/DUI charge is to contact a qualified attorney to protect your legal rights. If you are charged with an OVI/DUI, it is possible to have your charge dismissed or reduced with the assistance of a skilled Ohio & Kentucky OVI/DUI attorney.
Ohio & Kentucky both have zero tolerance policy with regards to drunk driving. Without a qualified attorney, you are facing an even greater burden due to the absence of being informed of your legal rights, your legal options, and a qualified professional representing those rights and options on your behalf.
Being convicted of an OVI/DUI can result in devastating consequences, which may include fines, jail, license suspension, license revocation, community service, or more.
Both Ohio & Kentucky statutes reference mandatory prosecution if you operate a motor vehicle with a BAC of 0.08% or more, or while impaired in any way.
If you are under the age of 21, the law is stricter. Minors are not allowed to purchase, have in the possession, or consume alcoholic beverages. If you have any alcohol in your vehicle, even unopened, on the road or in a parking lot, you can be charged with a misdemeanor. If you have a BAC of 0.02 or higher, you can also be arrested.
