Prior DUI Offenses (Federal and Out-of-State)

My practice is proud to serve the military community in and around Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.  One of the recurring questions we get from military personnel is whether or not a federal or out-of-state DUI can be used to enhance a DUI they get here in Ohio.  At one time they did not.  Now, however, the offenses received in another state or on federal property do count. See Ohio Revised Code 4511.181(A).  DUI defense attorneys challenged the ex post facto application of R.C. 4511.181(A) but the courts have held that since it serves only as an enhancement it meets constitutional...

One Strike and You’re OUT. An Update on the Self-Reporting Requirement.  The military has always been the employer of last resort.  When the economy is good the military is hard pressed to meet recruitment.  When the economy is bad the military can and does get very picky.  Today the civilian authorities seem to agree that the best place to cut federal spending is the military.  Force reduction has been policy in the past and will be again in the future.  The self-reporting requirement is a force management tool.For the individual member the best advice is not to self- report.  As a...

Military DUI: What Happens Now?

The consequences of an OVI while serving active duty in the military can be devastating: dishonorable discharge, rank reduction, pay deduction, loss of security clearance, fines and jail time and mandatory military counseling sessions and potential exclusion from some sensitive operations.  Military regulations often subject its members to enhanced Non-Judicial Punishment (NJP), which go above and beyond the punishments allowed by civilian law.  We are seeing more cases where the leadership is “cracking down” on drunk driving offenses and promising to end the career of personnel who are found guilty of an OVI offense.  This limits the ability of commanding...
