What to Know About DUI/OVI Laws in Ohio

Ohio takes intoxicated driving seriously. You will hear this charge referred to as a DUI (driving under the influence) or OVI (operating a vehicle impaired). Under ORC § 4511.19, a defendant can be arrested and charged with a DUI/OVI if: 

  • They have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 or higher; or
  • They are unlawfully under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or a combination. 

An Overview of the Penalties for Intoxicated Driving in Ohio

The penalties for a DUI/OVI in Springfield, Ohio, will depend on many different factors, including a motorist’s prior offenses, or lack thereof. Most DUIs are misdemeanor criminal offenses in Ohio. The general penalties are as follows: 

  • First Offense: Up to six months in jail, a $1075 fine, and a three year license suspension. 
  • Second Offense: Up to six months in jail, a $1,625 fine, and a seven year license suspension. 
  • Third Offense: Up to one year in jail, a $2,750 fine, and a twelve year license suspension. 

Other factors can also lead to heightened DUI penalties. For example, a driver who was highly intoxicated when arrested may face more severe criminal sanctions. A Springfield, OH DUI defense lawyer can help to spare you from the most harsh penalties.
