Fear, shame or guilt may compel you to want to plead guilty to put the charge behind you, but that decision may have long-lasting and unintended consequences.If you are under 21 years old, drinking alcohol is illegal in the State of Ohio.

The libation was a mainstay of Hellenistic society and it was used to honor the gods, as currency, as medicine, as a thirst-quencher (and to get drunk). In fact, using alcohol was considered a civic duty in Athens. At great gatherings and feasts officials, known as oinoptai made sure that the good stuff was distributed fairly. By showing the citizens that government could be trusted with something as important as wine, the Greeks ushered in demokratia or "people power" and entered...

Learn what it means for you in this video. We ask this question because the "odor of an alcoholic beverage" is the first and most relied upon clue an officer notes in his or her report.  Not only does it determine that the driver has been drinking but provides legal justification (reasonable suspicion) for continuing the stop for a DUI/OVI investigation.  Courts allow an officer to testify as to the odor and...
