How likely is it that the SCRAM would be removed if my lawyer and I asked for permission for removal?
I got my first DUI in early February and after my first appearance with the judge, I was put on SCRAM because of my alcohol content. I have a lawyer and have another hearing this Thursday. I haven't had a problem not drinking but this device on my ankle is just bothersome. And with the summer months approaching, I was hoping to have it removed.
It is unusual that a SCRAM unit would be ordered on a first OVI unless your test was extremely high. Having been on the...
What should I plead for my first OVI?
At 2:30 am, I was pulled over for speeding at 53 mph in a 45 mph zone. The cop pulled me over, and smelled alcohol on my breath and noticed I had bloodshot eyes. He had me do the breathalyzer test, he had me walk in a straight line, had me follow his pen with my eyes, and stand on one leg. He arrested me and took me to the station. I blew a .10 on the station breathalyzer. The officer took me home after this and seized my license. I am due in court on Monday. I cannot afford a lawyer, and the free legal services through my university are closed for break. I am not sure which would be beneficial for me: to plead no contest or guilty?
Plead Not Guilty. Tell the Judge that you cannot afford a lawyer, and ask the Court to appoint you one. OVI is a...
Ohio took my pa license after an ovi, can I get this back to use in pa?
My bac was .127, this is my first offense and I have only attended my arraignment thus far. I have an apartment in Ohio but am a permanent pa resident with a pa license. They took my license at the station and put me on an automatic suspension. Do I have a right to keep my physical license? Can I get it back? Do I have driving rights in pa? Or driving rights prior to an actual conviction? I have no ID at all right now, what do I do?
You are suspended in Ohio only at this time, until you hear otherwise from Pa. You can appeal the suspension, but it...

Is there a way to get an Underage OVI charge brought down to a traffic violation?
I was driving home after a party where I had been drinking. However, I drove home because I knew that I was functioning perfectly fine. I was pulled over for reasons having to do with my tail light. The cop said he could smell alcohol, and asked me to get out of the car. I did so, and passed every test with flying colors until the breath test. I blew a .07 so we went to the station and I blew a .06, under the normal legal limit. He gave me a ticket with an OVI and tail light charge. This is my first offense. I am a first year Engineering student. My high school record was spotless. I was heavily involved in Church and community service organizations. I would like to find a way to turn this charge into something different, a traffic violation perhaps.
You need to hire an attorney ASAP. You also need to stop admitting facts online. OVI limits are significantly less for...
Is it likely to for an OVI to be dismissed with a .069 breath test?
I was recently surprised to find out I can get an OVI conviction with .069 BAC. I was in an unfamiliar area and was setting up a GPS at a stop light. I proceeded to go straight in a right turn only which got me a legit stop. I did poorly on the SFST's and refused the portable test, but the Intoxilyzer 8000 got me anyway. I was polite and cooperative with my arresting officer and he said that 9/10 in my situation get a reduction to reckless operation. With the above information is there any possibility that the prosecution will just dismiss this charge? Am I more or less safe from getting an OVI like the officer said?
The officers usually underestimate the danger on purpose. If you did poorly on field sobriety, it may be difficult to...
