Vast Understanding Of Handling Of OVI Charges In Jefferson County
If you have been charged with operating your vehicle under the influence (OVI) in Jefferson County, Monroe County or Belmont County, attorney Scott C. Brown is someone you can trust to help you through this difficult process.
Understanding An OVI
An OVI in Ohio is almost always a Level 1 misdemeanor; however, if you inflict serious property damage, injure someone or kill another driver, passenger or pedestrian, you can be charged with a felony. In addition, repeated convictions of OVI can also result in a felony conviction.
The majority of OVIs are misdemeanors, but they still come with heavy fines, loss of license, probation and even a short jail sentence in some case. Repeat offenses generally end up in significant jail time and felony OVIs can land you in a state prison for years.
To make the process even more difficult for you, powerful lobby groups like Mothers Against Drunk Driving have become quite successful in worsening penalties imposed on intoxicated drivers. State and local law enforcement even set up task forces set solely on catching drunk drivers. OVI checkpoints are set up around long weekends and holidays in a way that can almost make a person feel entrapped.
Consequences Of An OVI
An OVI arrest can bring upon extensive consequences for you. Dealing with the possibility of fines, jail time, probation, vehicle impoundment, ignition interlock device, loss of license, points on your license, alcohol education classes (ARD), alcoholics anonymous meetings, skyrocketing insurance costs, a public record and community service can be a depressing and overwhelming time in your life.
