As noted above, a second OVI conviction in Ohio can have severe consequences. Talking with an Ohio DUI defense attorney is highly recommended to fight the charge.
There are a number of potential defenses to OVI charges that our attorneys would examine. For example, we may be able to challenge the officer’s probable cause to make the OVI stop, or whether he properly administered the field sobriety tests. We can also examine the accuracy of the breath test and whether the proper protocols were followed in administering that test as well.
Even if the state has strong evidence against you, an attorney may be able to negotiate a plea deal on your second OVI charge that could keep you from serving the mandatory 10 days in jail and/or ending up with a years-long suspended license and heavy fines.
