Can i appeal to not be required to have an interlock/plates on my car to drive again since its a few years into the suspension?
I have a 5 year suspension on my license (3rd ovi in 6 years unfortunately) that ends may 2019. I have not driven, not asked for priveleges in 2 years since the suspension started and forfeited my license and any chance to ask for priveleges for the option of a state id instead. i have to at some point get a temporary permit and retake a drivers test, by which time it would be around 2 1/2 to 3 years of no driving .After that length of time and voluntarily forfeiting my license, I do not understand why I should need to be required interlock/rest. plates when the judge said at sentencing that if i fulfilled and successfully completed all requirements of sentencing that he would revoke the suspension completely.
Prob. Officer also stated that even if i did get my license early i would be required no matter what, to have an interlock/plates on the car that i drive until 2021 even though my suspension ends in may 2019.I understand the reasoning behind having an interlock, past experience and research I did shows me that the device is not as effective as claimed.

What type of breathalyzer looks similar to a incentive spirometer (hospital equipment)? Is the output affected by acetaldehyde?
Blew a 0.250 at the station recently. Doing preliminary research, as I feel this was an incredibly exaggerated number. My question is about the type of breathalyzer the officers used and whether "mouth alcohol" could be a factor.
You were tested on the Intoxilyzer 8000. And yes, the results can be skewed by alcohol in your mouth. The officer(s)...
How can a specification to an ovi carry more time than the main charge of an ovi?
In September there was a decision in the Ohio Supreme Court in the case of Edward South, The Court found that the maximum sentence for a third degree felony was 36 months. If this is in fact the case then how can the specification still carry a 5 year maximum when it is supposed to be an enhancement to the Third-degree felony OVI charge. i understand that it was legislations intent but how can you receive more for the specification then what the actual charge carries?? It seems that legislation is treating the specification as if its a charge in itsself? If thats the case then its Double jeopardy because you need the same elements to obtain the third degree felony OVI as do you with the specification which is 5 in 20 years.. The law states that you cannot receive more than time than that of the most serious of crimes? so that would mean that the spec would have to be the dominant charge and therefore sets alone instead of being an enhancement?
If someone is on probation when the third degree OVI takes place, there could be an enhanced sentence due to the...

How long will it take to get driving privileges after I file a motion?
My boyfriend just filed a motion to get driving privileges. They got suspended for 3 years in January. He has followed all the rules of probation and have finished all his classes. His probation officer is very happy with him. He is trying to get driving privileges so he can work.
That depends on why his license was suspended in the first place. Usually, there is a "hard time" period for OVI...
