DUI-defenseAnother reason to make Charles M. Rowland II, DaytonDUI, you first choice for DUI/OVI defense is that Ohio does not allow expungements in drunk driving cases.  If you make a mistake when you are a young person, the stigma of a DUI conviction will follow you for the rest of your life. In 2014, Ohio decided to expand the ability of Ohioans to apply for an expungement and get a fresh start. It was decided that DUI offenders did not deserve a break under the new law.

The current expungement law makes choosing the right DUI attorney of paramount importance.

OVI, DUI, OMVI, DWI, Drunk Driving – Is There Any Difference?

ovi, omvi, dui, dwi, drunk drivingSpoiler Alert: They all mean the same thing: operating a vehicle under the influence of drug, alcohol or a combination of drugs and alcohol, in violation of Ohio Revised Code 4511.19.

Colloquially, the most common way to describe drunk driving is by referring to it as a DUI. The term DUI is universally understood and used by most national news organizations. DWI (driving while impaired) is also a ubiquitous term used to describe drunk driving. More info

Less OVI Checkpoints, More OVI Arrests

00DUI CheckpointsTags: , , , , , , , ,

Did you notice there were less OVI checkpoints this year? Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers made the decision to change from an OVI checkpoint strategy, to a more concentrated OVI patrol strategy.  So, how many OVI arrests did the Ohio State Highway Patrol make over night Dec. 31 into Jan. 1 in our area?  Numbers from a 12-county area, including Montgomery and Miami counties, shows 19 OVI offenses. Those numbers include:

  • 7 from the Dayton post that covers Montgomery and Preble counties;
  • 2 from the Springfield post for Clark and Champaign counties;
  • 3 from the Xenia post in Greene County;
  • 6 from the Piqua post that covers Miami, Darke, Shelby, Mercer and Auglaize counties;
  • 1 from the Lebanon post that covers Warren County; and
  • 3 from the Hamilton post that covers Butler County

Across Ohio, there were three fatal crashes compared to 10 during the same period last year. This is significant because this year marked a change in strategy for the OSP. They used less ineffective OVI checkpoints and more traditional “saturation” patrols to look for impaired drivers. Let’s hope this is a trend that continues.
