It sounds like you're getting charged with a felony OVI. You can get charged with one of those if this is your fourth...
Second offense OVI, would trying to get started in counseling before pre-trial help get less jail time?
Got 1st OVI 2007, plead no contest. Just stopped last week for 2nd. Given ALS but I did submit 3 times for breathalyzer but got invalid sample. Did poorly on FTS but first try was in 6" heels. Tried again an hour later & thought I did ok, but officer report says the 2nd time had similar findings to first attempt, but didn't write specifics. I know it will not go well for me, even with a lawyer. I am wondering if I were to try & set up alcohol counseling before my pre-trial if that might be favorable & help reduce jail time. I could probably get 5 days off work if I had to but 10 would mean I'd lose my job.
I am not a criminal defense attorney, but entering into counseling prior to your court date certainly would not hurt...
Can a cop come to my house over 6 months after a traffic accident and i have already been to court and paid fines
Can a cop come to my house over 6 months after a traffic accident and I have already been to court and paid fines add more charges? - I was in a accident on May 16 and taken to the hospital. Blood was drawn and I was checked out. I went to court for failure to control and it was reduced to a mechanical failure and all was over. Today I was handed a DUI ticket :
The short answer is a police officer can do whatever you let him get away with. There are a variety of legal issues...
Do I have access to view a persons written statement? Do I have access to audio recordings taken by the involved officer?
I was a passenger in a vehicle that I own. A friend "josh" was driving my vehicle and ran it into a ditch. I had a few drinks that night. The police thought I was the driver despite oral statements from every person involved, including "josh" who admitted to being behind the wheel. I was charged with OVI and arrested because the officer said that, "after further questioning," the 3 other passengers in my vehicle stated to him that I was actually the driver. "josh" was the only other person to write a written statement other than myself. The OVI was later dropped but I was instead charged with failure to control a vehicle that I was not driving. I would like to hear these admissions and see the written statements.
You should hire an attorney who can help get these items for you. You have to file a written discovery demand that...
Epilepsy driving laws in OHIO (or US law)
Scenario: Woman is diagnosed w/ seizures - medical restriction is set. She drives with two children in her car. Seizures are frequent and medication is currently experimental and she has symptoms of intoxication similar to that of DUI most days. 1. Are there laws/superintendent regarding physician medical restrictions?* 2. Are there child safety/hazard laws regarding the same? * §4507 seems to aim at drugs/alcohol and not prescription/seizures Thank you.
4507.08 deals with a restricted license for people with medical issues as well. This is up to the persons doctors...
Can ALS be stayed if I actually did submit to a breathalyzer, but got invalid sample?
I submitted to breathalyzer, 3 tests were done consequtively, without a wait period in between. Each time the result was invalid sample. The officer stated he could see I was trying to do the test right but was unable to sustain my breath long enough so he had to put it as a refusal. My arraignment is in two days & I plan to ask for a stay of the ALS as I didn't actually refuse the test. What are the chances this motion (in Ohio) will be granted? Will I be able to get driving privileges so I can go to work?
A proper motion needs to be filed with the court. You need to hire a DUI defense attorney. Amanda Ackerman Condon...
What are the Ohio state laws for driving underage intoxicated people?
I am 19 and so are my 3 friends. If I stay sober all night but my 3 friends get drunk and I drive them home, am I doing something illegal? Someone told me it was illegal to drive around intoxicated minors, even if I'm sober and there's no open containers in my vehicle.
In theory, I suppose you could be considered complicit in their behavior because you would be knowing facilitating by...
