Charles M. Rowland II regularly appears in the Xenia Municipal Court and has maintained www.XeniaDUI.com to educate people about the court, the court process and how to aggressively defend a DUI (now called OVI; operating a vehicle under the influence) charge. Often, obtaining driving privileges is one of the most important parts of the defense of a drunk driving charge. Judge Michael Murry has issued rules regarding obtaining driving privileges in the Xenia Municipal Court on the court’s web site (HERE). You can obtain a printable version of the court’s application form below.
APPLICATION FOR DRIVING PRIVILEGES
To: Applicants for Driving Privileges
From: Xenia Municipal Court
Subject: Applications for Driving Privileges
Date : January 2, 2008
The Clerks have been instructed by Judge Michael K. Murry to reject applications for driving privileges unless the driving privileges comply with the following requirements:
1. The request must be completely legible.
2. The name, address, and telephone number of the applicant’s supervisor is evident on the application.
3. If the applicant is requesting driving privileges during working hours, then an explanation of why the applicant needs to have driving privileges during the workday is necessary (i.e., deliver pizzas, make sales calls etc.)
Request must be specific, the applicant must explain where he or she needs to travel, the reason he or she needs to travel to that location, and the specific time of travel. If the request is complicated, and especially if the request involves different travel requests for different days, then it is recommended that the applicant include a daily schedule on the back of the application. The daily schedule should include the days, hours, and destinations where the applicant would be driving should the Court grant privileges. A written explanation for the schedule should be on the front of the application.
No more than 50 hours per week and no more than 5 days per week will be granted.
Proof of insurance must be included with the application.
Any application that a Clerk believes does not comply with the above-mentioned rules will not be accepted.
