Arrested For A 2nd Offense OVI/DUI In Ohio?
Ohio takes arrests for OVI (operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or controlled substance) seriously. If you are arrested for a second OVI offense in Ohio, you could be facing severe penalties that can cost you your freedom and restrict your driving privileges.
At the Dayton-based law firm of Stamps & Stamps, our attorneys provide more than 60 years of combined criminal defense experience. Lawyers Dana and Eric Stamps have a track record of helping clients throughout Montgomery County avoid jail time for OVI/DUI charges. Let them put their experience to use for you.
You Will Face Increased Penalties For A Second DUI/OVI
While a second-offense OVI is still a misdemeanor, the state has strict mandatory minimum penalties that increase with each conviction. For a second-offense conviction, you could spend up to 180 days in jail and lose your license for well more than one year.
Here in Dayton and throughout Ohio, judges are much less sympathetic to multiple OVI offenders. This is why it is crucial that you consult with an attorney about your best options before simply pleading guilty.
Our lawyers provide the personal service that you need when dealing with a serious charge of this nature. We will look for every weakness in the case to exploit — such as a breath test — and work to have charges reduced or dismissed. We have extensive trial and plea negotiation experience that will benefit your case when so much is at stake.
