October 11th, 2011 by DaytonDUI Leave a reply »

House Bill 86 which will come into effect at the end of September is a significant change to the way Ohio sentences offenders.  It also holds some interesting provisions for OVI offenders, some of which we will look at here.

LOCAL INCARCERATION OPTIONS

H.B. 86 authorizes the creation of community alternative sentencing centers (CASC at R.C. 307.932 and R.C. 2929.26(B)) for midemeanants including OVI offenders.  Eligible offenders include those OVI offenders who are eligible to be sentenced directly to the CASC and who are not serving or sentenced under any other jail or prison term.  OVI offenders will also be required to meet the requirements and rules of the CASC. R.C. 307.932(C).  Those serving an OVI-related term of incarceration (including house arrest) can serve up to 60 days in the CASC and those that receive a sentence longer than 60 days are eligible to serve up to 60 days in the CASC (R.C. 307.932(C)(2).

WORK RELEASE

The bill allows for approved work, vocational education and other releases including for offenders serving mandatory OVI-related time. R.C. 307.932(H)(4)(D).
