Vehicle seizures in Ohio are governed by two separate statutory schemes. The procedure for OVI vehicle seizures is governed by R.C. 4511.195 and the statutory outline for Driving Under Suspension (DUS) and Wrongful Entrustment Cases is controlled by R.C. 4510. Your vehicle will be seized if you are charged with any of the following offenses:
- A second or greater OVI within six (6) years and/or any felony OVI offense;
- Driving Under Suspension, R.C. 4510.11(C)(2);
- Driving Under and OVI Suspension, R.C. 4510.14(B)(3)(d);
- Driving Under an FRA (Financial Responsibility Act) Suspension, R.C. 4510.16(B)(3);
- Wrongful Entrustment, R.C. 4511.203(C)(3); or
- Violation of an Immobilization Order, R.C. 4503.236(B).
