Driving Under The Influence or OVI Charges in Harrison

The first step when you’re pulled over or charged with drunk driving is understanding the charge against you. The term you hear most commonly used is DUI, short for driving under the influence. Sometimes a charge might be referred to as a DWI, meaning driving while intoxicated. But in Ohio it is a little different. In Ohio the charge for operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs is an OVI – operating a vehicle while under the influence. Whether your blood alcohol content (BAC) is above the legal limit of 0.08 or you have drugs in your system the charge you will face in Ohio is an OVI.

The penalties you face due to an OVI are far reaching even for a first offense. A first OVI charge would be a 1st Degree Misdemeanor with possible penalties that include fines, jail time, license suspension, driving limitations, and a requirement to display a special license plate identifying OVI offenders. The severity of the charges and penalties increase based on a variety of factors such as the level of your BAC or whether you’ve had other previous OVI offenses. If you are wondering how severe Ohio’s OVI penalties can get, please see our in-depth information regarding Ohio OVI Laws and Penalties here.

So if you are caught drunk driving, don’t delay in contacting an experienced Harrison criminal defense attorney who knows the Ohio OVI laws and can help defend you from the state’s serious penalties.
