Is there a law in Ohio which creates a duty for the owner of a car to prevent an unlicensed or drunk driver from using said car?
My father in law (kind of) was stopped and charged for OVI and speed. The patrolman coerced his long time girlfriend (my mother in law) to write a statement that he did not have permission to drive the car under threat that to give permission was a crime, since he does not hold a license, and was in fact impaired. He threatened to charge her with a crime for not calling the police on him.
I am not licensed in Ohio, but in California, where I am licensed, there is such a law if the drunk person is perhaps a...

2nd DUI... chances of getting it lowered.
Was stopped due to marked lanes after coming back from a party after staying the night. Told officer I had been drinking the night before. Preformed a FST and took a portable Breathalyzer. I'm assuming I passed the portable test because the officer wouldn't tell me the results. He said he thinks i'm impaired and took me to the station where I blew a .081.
Sure, they're things there that a good lawyer can work with...but it also depends on the prosecutor (and judge); there...

I am an international student in Cleveland I was convicted with DUI on January 1st in Columbus so after the 2nd court trail we have a deal of 'physical control' and three day class for non alcoholic related, we kept the deal on table and trying the jury trail on March 26th so do you think I need to take the deal or fight back till it goes off record.

How many vials of blood are required to be drawn in an OVI blood draw?
I was arrested for OVI on 9/4/15 and the officer offered me a blood, breath or urine sample, and I chose to provide a blood sample. The officer took me to the hospital where the nurse drew ONE vial of blood, the officer put it in an evidence bag and we left. He cited me for OVI and then released me. He received the results on 10/13/15 and he filed charges on 10/14/15. How can I possible obtain an untainted sample? There is only one vile of blood, and the crime lab had to use it to test it. Shouldn't the officer have directed the nurse to draw 2 vials of blood so that one vile was preserved for the defense? is there enough prejudice to have the results thrown out?
As long as the original vile has been preserved, you can still require independent testing. There are strict...
In OHIO when is a person considered under "arrest"?
I was pulled over for OVI and the officer made me do field sobriety tests, then put me in cuffs, took me back to the police station. He read the BMV 2255 form that stated I was under arrest, and made me submit to a breathalyzer. He released me to my family shortly after. Was I under arrest under Ohio law?
Whether you are under arrest depends on the circumstances. The actual question you should ask is "were you in custody?"...
