Should i plead guilty or not guilty in my ovi even if i blew into the breathalyzer? I got a failure to control too.
I blew a .127 and it was my first offense ever. I don't know what to do because i don't deal with stuff like this ever. I wish I had the money for a good lawyer but the fact is i simply do not, but i called the public defenders office and she said to plead not guilty. I'm just making sure I'm not going to get into trouble for pleading not guilty one hearing and pleading guilty the next? Also if you have an idea what my sentence will be tht would be nice to know. I don't get into trouble ever I'm just scared. Thank you for your time.
I hear this question often from people who don't have a history of appearing in court (which is a good thing)....
What is the time frame to invoke a suspended jail sentence?
Got suspended 6 month sentence on 2/25/2014. No probation or anything, only to pay fine. Judge now wants me to serve my 6 month sentence as of 2/29/2015. What is the time fram that this judge can hold this sentence over my head? The rest of my life? Judge keeps changing my public defender also, on her liking, not due to motions requesting new counsel or requests to withdrawal. This tiny town legal system is a little baffling to me & Im looking for some outside suggestions. Thank you.
If the judge imposed a fine, and you do not pay the fine, the jail sentence can be ordered into execution. Did the...
Charged with Physical Control in the State of Ohio, seems to be issues with the paperwork. Would like your thoughts please.
Officer responded to a 3rd party call that I was in danger (another motorist saw my wife smack me while I was parked). Asked me where the marks on my face came from and I indicted my wife was overly drunk and after repeated attempts to get her seat belt on, she scratched me a few times. I was given the HGN test, walk test and then placed in the squad car. My spouse was unresponsive due to her BAC and was taken to the hospital. I was given a breathalyzer test then informed I was charged with physical control. I stayed overnight in lockup,released the next day with no paperwork. Later find out my the paperwork was in my spouses purse locked up in jail (she was charged with DV). None of my paperwork has my BAC and I havent been able to acquire an officers statement. Is this normal?
No, the situation that you've presented is not usual, though as you now know first hand, it does happen. The...
Postponing scheduled jail time..
I have been ordered to serve 3 days in jail for a "driving under a 12 point suspension." The date that I am to appear is Friday, December 12th. Since the hearing, I have obtained a new job which will require me to work that weekend. At my orientation, I was informed that time off should be scheduled no less than 30 days in advance so that adequate help can be scheduled to cover for me. I also have scheduled visitation with my children on said weekend. Is there any way that I could get this rescheduled until after the first of the year and, if so, how would one go about requesting this change?
Ask your lawyer to file a motion with the court requesting an extension of your surrender date.

You should hire a local attorney if possible to go with you to court tomorrow. If it is your first court appearance,...
2 Dui arrest questions.
I was arrested for a dui in ohio the other day. I pulled over to puked along side the road then the cops showed up. Did a sobriety test and then put me in the back of the cop car. Question I'm asking is, can he put me in the back of the cop car in handcuffs before being read my Maranda rights? And does he have to search me before putting me into the cop car?
Yes, the police can arrest you without Mirandizing you (reading you your rights). However, they cannot question you...
Pa and ohio suspension laws for drivers license
Currently got an ovi/dui in ohio. They took my pa license and said they were suspended. Does this mean I can drive in pa but not in ohio?
You'd have to check with PA to see if your right to drive is suspended in PA
