DUI Court Cases - Candace Kim-KnoxPenalties for an OVI DUI charge in Ohio are harsh and should be taken seriously.

Even first time offenders face a minimum of:

  • 72 consecutive hours (3-days) up to a maximum of 180 days (6-months) in jail
  • a minimum 6-month license suspension
  • a mandatory $375 fine

There is also the possibility of tougher penalties depending on the variables of your DUI offense. Commercial (CDL) drivers have additional regulations and requirements that must be taken into account.

Combine these factors with the public pressuring courts for harsher penalties, and prosecuting attorneys’ interest in pleasing the state and pushing for maximum penalties. Going to court alone against an OVI/ DUI charge has left many people with damaged careers and finances or sitting in a jail cell.
