DUI / OVI Charges
The legal limit for a blood or breath alcohol level is .08 (and .04 for commercial drivers). Reaching this limit depends on a variety of factors, including the type of alcohol consumed, speed of the alcohol consumption, body type and metabolism, and even an empty stomach. Since people aren't always consciously aware of their alcohol levels, an arrest for DUI can come as a shock, especially for a first time offender in Ohio.
DUI is the term used to refer to people who drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. However, the term is officially called OVI (Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated) in Ohio state statutes. No matter the name, the offense can carry severe consequences for a person if convicted. The consequences extend beyond prison or fines and can even affect future employment options.
