The Consequences of a DUI Charge in Clermont County
Ohio Revised Code §4511.19 outlines that a driver who is found to be impaired by alcohol or drug use, or who can be proven to have a BAC of .08 or above can be charged with OVI, more commonly referred to as DUI. This charge carries potential penalties that increase based on the accused individual's prior offenses. For a driver's first offense, they face the possibility of a minimum of 72 hours in prison, as well as a fine up to $1,075 and a requirement to participate in an alcohol rehabilitation program. The offender may also be required to install an interlock ignition device, which requires a breath test before the car can be started.
The Criminal Process for an OVI in Fairfield
Unlike most states, Ohio uses a Mayor's Court system to process minor offenses such as traffic violations and DUI charges. These Courts operate within the major cities of Ohio, and if you are accused of a Dui, you will most likely be processed through one of these courts. The Court operates under its own statutes, and operates independently from the Municipal or County Court. There are benefits to this system, such as a relief for the State's other courts, but these courts also do not provide juries for trials. An attorney can of course still represent you at the Mayor's Court proceedings, and it can be invaluable to have a skilled legal professional at your side.
There are currently 4 Mayor's Court locations within Clermont County:
- Commercial Point
- New Holland
- South Bloomfield
