What is the penalty for 2 DUIs and 1 Physical Control in Ohio?
1st DUI was 16 years ago, Physical control 4 years ago- pleaded down. 2nd DUI just happened and going to court in a week- BAL double the limit. No collison, speeding but was not put on ticket. Thanks very much for any information.
This is your first offense in six years. So, the mandatory minimum penalties will not be enhanced. However, you could...
I have an Ohio dl but got a dui in P.A. Is my suspension only for P.A. or will it hold up in Ohio as well?
I refused the blood chemical test so the suspension is automatic for a year.
A suspension in one state usually acts a suspension in any other state.
Question about warrants. Might just be being paranoid.
Over two years ago, I was convicted of an OVUAC and received a fine to pay and mandatory 72 hours in an alcohol rehabilitation program. A few months later, I paid the fine in full, and did my mandatory program. When I completed the program, which was the last thing I needed to fulfill with the courts (not fulfilled requirements for DMV at this point), I was told the completion certificate would be sent to my courthouse, and I had my own copy. I mailed a copy to my attorney, as I was told so he could show the judge I completed as well, and let him know I sent it to him. I assumed I was done with the courts, as they took the block off my license when my suspension ended and I got a new license and everything fine, but I was concerned because I never went back to the court and made sure everything was all good. No one ever contacted me about it, not even my lawyer, and it's been two years. I have been pulled over twice in this time for minor infractions where they took my license and, I assume, checked for warrants, and both times I got off with a warning. One was a cop in a neighboring city, and one was a state highway patrolmen. I checked my clerk of courts website and nothing.
I am not certain that I see a question here. The process you describe by which the Court is notified sounds to be...
ALS/OVI Officer did not check box stating "placed under administrative license suspension"
I was arrested for OVI on 4/1/16. The officer took me back to police station and asked me to submit to a breathalyzer. I refused to submit, and told officer that I would agree to a blood test, but not a breathalyzer because I did not trust the results of the machine. The officer took me to the hospital and had a blood draw taken. After the blood draw, the officer issued me "BMV 2255 Administrative license suspension". At the initial appearance I appealed the ALS because the officer didn't check the box that says "placed under administrative license suspension". The Judge overruled the appeal, and the ALS in now in place. My question is if there is any case law that says the "box must be checked" in order for ALS to be in place. Is the receipt of the citation considered "under suspension" no matter what boxes were checked? I am working with an attorney who is not experienced in OVI and I am trying to help as much as I can. Thanks for any answers.

Transferring colleges. DUI on my record.
Hello. I'm trying to transfer to another university, and one of the application questions is "Have you ever been convicted of a criminal offense or have charges pending against you at this time? (Other than minor traffic violations)." Now, I was convicted of an OVUAC. It was a poor choice as a stupid young kid. It's the only thing on my record, and I'm not sure weather to answer yes or no because I don't know if it's a criminal conviction or a traffic conviction. I don't want to be denied. Also, this is incredibly stressful because I can never expunge or seal it being in the state of Ohio.
It is a criminal conviction and you do need to candidly reveal it. Sorry to tell you this, as I appreciate you did not...
