Being charged with a DUI can have life altering consequences. That’s why it’s imperative to contact a Delaware, OH DUI Attorney – someone to represent you when you have been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Violations for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) or Operating a Vehicle Impaired (OVI) are both serious offenses under Ohio state law.  A charge and arrest for DUI/OVI can be from operating a vehicle while under the influence of:

  • Alcohol
  • Illicit Drugs
  • Combination of Both

While you may have heard that there is a .08 blood alcohol level limit, Ohio also has what is known as a “high tier” or “super OVI,” which means a blood or breath alcohol reading of .17 and above.  The “high tier” penalty can potentially be greater and more severe than that of a .08.

DUIs become a part of your public record.  They can lead to serious consequences that can affect you for the rest of your life. These penalties be even worse if this is your second offense, or if you have other drugs/alcohol issues on your record. No matter your history, if you may be charged with a DUI or OVI, you need to call a Delaware, OH DUI attorney.

With a DUI/OVI conviction in Delaware the stakes are high and there are a lot of factors to consider. If you’re convicted, you could face up to three years in prison, fines of up to $1000, restrictions on your ability to drive, employment penalties and more. If this is a second or third conviction, the penalties may be even worse.
