Officer denied letting me read 2255 form.
I was arrested for OVI and was read that 2255 form that is required to be read to me. I was confused and asked the officer if I may read over the form before signing just so I made sure I understood everything, and he said "no, you can read it all you want after you sign". My question: is it a possible defense that the breathalyzer can be removed from the prosecutor's evidence because I did not fully understand the form? I'm sure the videotape audio will be sufficient proof of this. Thank you.
Yes, that may be a valid reason for terminating the ALS suspension and also suppressing the breath test. This issue...
I know the law says that the form must be read by the arresting officer and the purpose of that is so the person being tested has a complete understanding of everything prior to testing. If I had questions and asked to read over the form myself and the officer said no and made me sign the paper without answering my concerns, could this be a valid automatic license suspension appeal? Especially since there will be booking room video/audio evidence to support this. I just got arrested last night for ovi. Thank you.
Unfortunately there probably isn't going to be simple answer to your question which is why getting an experienced OVI...
I have a friend who has 2 dui's in OH..He is on probation..He just got arrested for DUI in WV. Will it be considered the 3rd?
He just had his second dui here in OH 5 months ago..When arrested in WV he was drunk, speeding, traveling in the middle of the road, carrying a few grams of pot and a pipe..He also has drug charges in Ohio..is he going away for a while?

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....
