People make mistakes. Ohio law severely punishes people who drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. However, even if you are convicted of DUI there are still many things a competent lawyer can do to help you.
Breathalizer tests frequently provide conclusive evidence of DUI.
Refusing breathilizer or urinalysis triggers a two year automatic Administrative License Suspension through the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
Drug intoxication is determined through urinalysis or blood analysis.
If you are convicted of Driving Under the Influence you can be sentenced from a minimum of three days or up to six months in jail and up to a One Thousand Dollar ($1,000.00) fine. You will have to obtain high risk insurance and your license will be suspended for six months.
If you are accused of committing a crime you need an attorney to defend you. Even if you are guilty.
Unrepresented Defendants almost always receive harsher penalties than a Defendant with a representative.
Unrepresented Defendants frequently plea guilty to a higher degree of offense than Defendants who are represented.
A Defendant needs to know what effect a guilty plea or no contest plea may have on his or her permanent record.
Don't go to jail if you don't have to.
