What Happens After You Get an OVI/DUI in Ohio
DUI laws in Ohio stipulate that first time drunk driving offenders lose their driver’s license for up to one year, pay fines of up to $1,000 and spend a minimum of three days in jail. If convicted for DUI/OVI in Ohio, you will have a criminal record, which could restrict your ability to travel to Canada, impact a credit rating and limit your employment options. The OVI attorneys at Suhre & Associates will provide an aggressive legal defense in an effort to keep your record clean and protect your future.
What About Your Driver’s License in Ohio After a DUI/OVI?
The police probably seized your driver’s license when you were arrested for suspicion of driving drunk in Akron or Summit County. The State of Ohio automatically suspends a motorist’s driving privileges for a minimum of 90 days and possibly as long as five years, depending on the circumstances of an arrest and the presence of any prior alcohol related traffic offenses. Renewing your driving privileges requires the payment of an additional fine and, in some instances, taking another driver’s license exam.
You can request an Administrative License Suspension hearing and try to retain your license, but the appeal must be made within 5 days of the date of your arrest. This is not a simple process and the hearing will involve legal issues and the presentation of physical evidence gathered during your arrest. You will have a better chance of keeping your driving privileges by having the OVI lawyers at Suhre & Associates represent you. The window of time for pursuing legal options and fighting for your license is very limited, so contact Suhre & Associates now.
