Proving Prior Convictions (Evidence Rule 902)

Just how hard is it for the prosecution to prove prior convictions in OVI cases? The government has the burden of providing a foundation that the documents proving prior convictions should be relied upon. The Ohio Rules of Evidence, Evid. Rule 902, provides that extrinsic evidence of authenticity, as a condition precedent to admissibility, is not required under three (3) specific circumstances:Domestic Public Documents Under Seal: These can include documents from other states, districts or political subdivision. Domestic Public Documents Not Under Seal: These include documents without a seal, but bearing some attestation that the signatory had the authority to sign the...

Russian, Swahili, Somoli, Turkish and other dialects make up a large proportion of the non-speaking population, as well as the growing Spanish-speaking population in the Dayton area. Language barriers can make it hard or confusing for citizens to access needed services, and criminal defendants and victims have the right to understand what’s happening in their cases.Welcome Dayton, the Dayton...

Ohio OVI: What Are The Legal Limits?

In Ohio, an OVI refers to the charge of operating a vehicle while impaired by drugs or alcohol.  If your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) and breath alcohol content (BrAC) is .08 or greater, you are considered to be “operating a vehicle impaired.” The .08 figure refers to the concentration of alcohol in your breath or in your blood.  There are also “legal limits” for the concentration of alcohol in a person’s blood serum or plasma and urine. For a urine sample, you will be over the “legal limit” if the alcohol concentration in your urine sample is .11 or greater.While...

Alcohol On Your Breath? So What!

Have we reached a point where the mere presence of alcohol on the breath is enough to place a person under arrest?  Did you take a Breathe Test in Ohio? 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...

"All I do is DUI defense." There is always that time at a party when someone will ask me what I do for a living. I proudly respond, "All I do is DUI defense." When I tell people what I do, it inspires some mixed responses. Some folks are perplexed that anyone would provide a defense to "those people."  Others attack my integrity and the integrity of the criminal justice system by stating that I am "just in it for the cash"  A more extreme reaction is to get so angry that you wish harm upon me and my family, "I...
