Hello everyone, I am being accused of OVI. The officer claimed when he stopped me that I had a "strong" alcohol odor, "red and glossy" eyes, and "slurred" speech. I can defend the slurred speech with audio from the cruiser camera, I'm not worried about that part. I naturally have circles under my eyes, could I use my license ID photo as proof of this as you can clearly see in my license ID? I have a scan of my license that was taken from when I needed to scan it for a job related purpose. I'm thinking my defense might be I had no slurred speech, period. The officer should have clearly known from my license photo I naturally have tired looking eyes. And as far as the alcohol odor... not sure, possibly my cologne? I'm working on getting an attorney to successfully represent me.
You are on the right track with your ideas for defenses. Should you use a scanned photo of your license? Maybe. Make...
Hi, I was charged with OVI and am confused by the codes. On the paper the arresting officer gave me, it lists the charge as 4511.19A1A. On the paper I received from the court for the pre trial, it says Action Code 4511.1911_A. I was wondering if this is the same thing or if it is an error on their end. Thank you for your help.

My husband is on probation for a dui and for also driving under ovi suspension. Last week he got arrested again for "indecent exposure" (for peeing in someones yard) and didnt go to his court date. The police came to the house and got him and now he has a probation violation. He is sitting in jail and we have a 10 day old newborn. I dont have money to buy him a lawyer and when he went to court he was still to drunk to tell the judge he needed a lawyer. Is there anyway I can get him a court appointed lawyer? Hes been to rehab so many times so I honestly think jail might be the rock bottom he needs to hit. Does anybody also know what kind of sentencing he is facing? Thank you for all of your help!
It is not too late for him to ask for a court-appointed lawyer and he absolutely should do so as soon as possible....
