The Definition and Consequences of a DUI Charge in Ohio

A DUI charge, formally referred to as an OVI in Ohio, can be filed against any driver who is impaired by the use of alcohol or drugs while operating a vehicle. If your BAC is .08 or above or you have a certain amount of drugs in your system, you may be facing chemical evidence to support a DUI charge.

If you are arrested for an OVI, your driver's license will automatically be suspended by the DMV. You can request a hearing to reinstate your privileges while your case is being processed, during which a lawyer can help you win the ability to drive during the weeks or months that it takes to resolve your case. This can be essential for continuing your daily life while you fight the accusation against you.


Cities and Mayor's Courts Within Clinton County

Unlike most states, Ohio employs a system called Mayor's Courts to alleviate the strain of the County court. Most minor offenses such as traffic violations and DUI charges are processed at city-level courts called Mayor's Courts.

The system, however, funnels the proceeds from the Mayor's Court intot he city's budget, which is controlled by the Mayor. This leads to the problem of bias in the system, and you need an attorney on your side to ensure that you don't fall victim to this flawed system.

The following cities in Clinton County contain Mayor's Courts:

  • Lithopolis
  • Pickerington
  • Sugar Grove
