Dayton Law

I have no recollection of a night however I am afraid that I was taken home by police for DUI.
The next morning my car, keys, and license were with me and I did not have a ticket on me (unless I lost it). Is it possible that I got a DUI or am I being paranoid?
My experience is that you would not have been taken home so you are probably being paranoid. You can check the dockets...
Can a field sobriety test be tossed out of court if it was given on a surface that was not level?
Field sobriety
Yes. Absolutely. I have had tests thrown out for this reason and others. You need to hire a lawyer.
Why have I charged with OVI, despite testing considerably lower than the legal limit?
There are two charges listed on the citation: Expired Registration and OVI. Stop was initiated after officer changed lanes behind me and ran my plates. Distance from the point that he maneuvered behind me to the stop is 926 feet. I had one extremely intoxicated passenger. I had one beer 1.5 hours prior to stop. I politely refused FST. Knowing that I would test under, I agreed to give a non-portable breathalyzer. I blew a .056, but was still charged with OVI. How is this? The officer hadn't observed any erratic driving to justify that I was impaired, and I broke no laws at all other than the Expired Registration. I get why he stopped me, and why I was cited for the registration, but the OVI leaves me at a loss.
It is a sad fact that anyone can be charged with anything. However, that does not mean that they are guilty of the...
Out of state license Illinois dui conviction ?
I have Ohio license and plead guilty in Illinois. I read from answers posts that I will be suspended in Ohio for sometime. Will I ever be able to be reinstated after suspension. Or will I be put on hold until I'm lifted in Illinois. The Illinois revocation is 1 year but I hear that Illinois has a process that could be 3 years for reinstatement.

OVI Driving under suspension can it be dissmissed or plead down?
I got my first OVI back in September of 2014. I was granted an LDP but shortly after I went out of work. On January 5th we had our newborn daughter and my water heater at my primary residence went out. My girlfriend was unable to drive due to prescription drugs and the water heater needed to be addressed. I had told my public defender back in November that I split time between a primary and secondary residence and was told if I was stopped en route between the residencies I would be fine. So of course on Jan 22 I went to address the issue at my primary residence. This had been my first time driving since the suspension. I have pre trial on March 4th and begin a new job shortly after as well as eligibility to reinstate my license on march 20th.
I have handled Driving Under Suspension's in all of the Dayton area courts and Yes, it is possible for a good attorney...
