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...

H1 Extension in Process & OVI/DUI Charge after getting Acknowledgement
Hi One of my friend has applied for H1 Extension and he received Acknowledgement Note last month. When it was in process , he answered as Not Arrested / Convicted while applying for the Extension. Due to his extremely bad luck he got into trouble yesterday with an OVI Charge and Reckless Driving note. Even though blowed below BAC [.062%] and he is taking an attorney help to fight the case in court now. Would there be any problem with this situation on his H1 Extension Approval, which is yet to be known and shows on USCIS as Case Received still. Please let us know.
If the immigration case was filed before criminal charges, there is no misrepresentation, if they find something on his...
