Under Ohio DUI Law, it is a serious crime to drive any vehicle while your ability to drive is impaired by alcohol or drugs. While the most common acronym for impaired driving in Ohio is DUI (driving under the influence), it is also referred to as OVI (operating a vehicle while intoxicated), and OMVI (operating a motor vehicle while under  the influence). No matter what acronym you refer to it as, it all describes the same crime and statute.  The penalties for DUI in Ohio are extremely strict, and all involve exposure to jail or prison time. In addition to imprisonment, you also face the potential of lengthy license suspensions, fines, alcohol education or intervention programs and a required ignition interlock device, the costs of which you would be responsible to cover. If you drive for a living or hold a CDL, the consequences of an Ohio DUI could devastate your career.  Although the laws and science of DUI cases are the same throughout the state, each county may apply and interpret the laws slightly differently. There are local rules, procedures and customs that all persons involved in the case must be aware of. For this reason, it is essential to be represented by an attorney with experience in the county and court where your case will be heard.
