Medina Law

Will a DUI prevent me from getting a liquor license transferred into my name in Medina County Ohio
I'm going to be attempting to have a liquor license transferred from my deceased grandfather's name into mine I have a DUI 4 years ago
This is not a dui defense question, this is an administrative licensing question. I'll refer it to that area of law.
Can I get my license suspension reduced from two years to one year?
I got my license suspended for two years following my second OVI. I am graduating college and want to move to another state in October. I paid all my fines and reinstatement charges, also completed my driving classes and have had no problems with probation.
If it is a refusal suspension, no. If it is a judicial suspension, it can be modified.
Offense that WAS on FBI and BCI reports is now gone, for some unknown reason.
I obtained FBI And Ohio BCI background checks in 2011 (to be allowed to work with children), and an OVI from 2006 in Medina, Ohio was Listed on my record, which did not preclude me from gaining employment around children. When I obtained new BCI and FBI checks in 2013, the OVI was not listed on the reports. What could cause this to happen? Is there a time limit in Ohio for reporting misdemeanor OVI arrests or convictions for employment background checks?
Sadly ohio OVI convictions are like herpes. They follow you forever. Before they changed the law to a 20 year look back...
Chances of jail time on first ovi in ohio
i recently got an oui, and have sentencing tomorrow, i had a high breathalyzer test and plead guilty to drop the high breathalyzer test from the charges so am now just being charged with an ovi. i know there is either a minimum 3 days in jail OR 3 days in "hotel hell." That being said what do you think the probability is that I'll get the jail time vs. the driving class? i do have a somewhat decent lawyer, but have not been in contact recently and am not sure what to expect.
It would be against the Ohio Rules of Professionalism and Ethics for an attorney to discuss your case with you while...
If I get pulled over for a license plate light out and I get a ovuac what are the chances of getting my charges reduced?
I got pulled over for a license plate light out, I got breathalyzed and blew a .039 what are the odds that I can get my charges reduced to a reckless op? Also I passed all of the tests that the officer told me to do on the side of the road.
Your chances of a reduction or winning depend on a number of factors. The court you are in, the prosecutor, the facts...
What could be my penalty - clean record, no priors, blew a .11 in Medina, Ohio
I was almost out of gas in an unknown area. Stupidly I was trying to GPS a gas station - cop pulled me over saying I was swerving. Haven't had my court date. What could I be looking at? I was fairly close to the limit and have never been involved in anything with the law.
In Ohio, an OVI is a first degree misdemeanor. The maximum penalty is up to six months in jail and up to a $1,075...
Where would I be able to find average sentences handed out for DUI 2nd off in 6 years for the state of Ohio broken down by court
I was found guilty in Medina Municipal Court and have questions as to whether my sentence is in line. I understand that the judge has discretion however I have some other questions that make this information pertinent. Also is it typical for a judge to refer all interlock users to one particular service location? How can I obtain info on what percentage of a franchises clients were referred by the same judge.
Yes you can do that if you want to waste a lot of time. Most counties have a policy re DUIs: so much for the first (...
