When house bill 86 changed the 3rd degree felony ovi from 5 years to 3 years, how can the specification stil carry 5 years when it is only an enhancement to the charge. doesn't that also change the specifcation to 3 years since they are both listed under 3rd degree felony. How do we fight this if we were given 4 years on the spec. and 2 years on the dui, both under house bill 86?
The Spec still carries up to five years. To be sure whether or not you were sentenced within the law, you would need to...
I have an interlock device installed on my car,and reveived a failed start test when i had NOT consumed any alcohol. why is this
Please note, I had not consumed any alcohol, was not wearing any perfume, body spray, no body/hair products that contained alcohol in them. I have asked the company(lake erie interlock) that installed the device on my car reasons it would fail me other than alcohol to receive an answer of "we cant give you one because we dont know, its your problem not ours because a fail is a fail regardless if you had consumed alcohol or not because our product is never wrong." I received no answer when I asked them questions, only rudeness and did research of my own with not very much help.
There are several possibilities that test would show a "fail," only one of which is having actually consumed alcohol....
I have an interlock device installed on my car and have received multiple fails when i had consumed no alcohol.
Majority of the times, I had been leaving a 10-12 hour shift at my job(in a restaurant)...We DO NOT serve alcohol and our cleaning products do not contain alcohol. The company that installed the interlock device has refused to tell me any possible explanations as to why it continually fails me when I have not been drinking and said it was my problem to deal with and not theirs. I feel there is either a problem with the device or the people not calibrating it properly.
What is your question ??? Understand that you PO has the right to violate you for a fail. They don't care. You can...

Hi, hopefully someone could help me. This past sat night after i got off work from a extremely busy and long shift at 3:15 am i took a couple shots of jameson to relax. Im a 100 pound female and had not consumed any food within 9 hrs. I left work about 5 min after that and got pulled over for speeding (65 in a 35). Cop asked me if i was drinking and i said yes a couple shots when i got off work at 315. I did the 3 field sobriety tests, failed the eye test and havent found out how i did on the other two yet. However, i blew in the preliminary breathalyzer (thought i had too) and blew a,.177 on scene, was arrested for ovi..refused the test at the station. Got a laywer pled not guilty at court. However, i.have acid reflux, anxiety, eye strain, and my eyes have trouble focusing. Chance?

I was convicted of petty theft. I was 18 at the time. I was convicted of DUI at 19. Can I get theft expunged?
I just read about Ohio SB 337, does this apply to me? I know I can't get the DUI expunged, but I would like to have the theft charged sealed.
No. The OVI makes it so you are not eligible at all for expungement.
They charged the other person he was with open container because they were both in the drivers seat, but he has a couple prior dui's so I am guess this is why, He hired an attorney who is charging him $10,000. to represent him but just told him the other day he will not be defending him since he still owes $5000.00 is this legal to do? The guy has paid him half but now will not represent him. He is doing the best he can with payments but it is hard coming up with that kind of money. Can anyone please lend me some advice.
It depends on the circumstances. If the attorney has filed a notice of appearance on the case, he must file a motion...
