Ohio’s Felony OVI Look-Back Rule

Ohio has established a twenty year felony OVI look-back period. A sixth or greater OVI (drunk driving) offense within a twenty year look-back period is a fourth degree felony OVI. R.C. 4511.19(G)(1)(d).  Another harsh provision under Ohio OVI  law is the “once a felony, always a felony” rule contained in R.C. 4511.19(G)(1)(e), meaning that any future DUI regardless of how many years have passed is charged as a third-degree felony.  This means that if you have many years of sobriety in between DUI convictions, you still face a felony rather than having your case treated as a first-in-six misdemeanor offense.Felony OVI...

OVI & Your Brain: Who Cares About Impairment?

More Faulty OVI Breath Test Assumptions One of the faulty assumptions underlying OVI evidential breath testing is the assumption that the tests are measuring the ability of alcohol to impair your brain.  They do not.  The breath test for OVI does not care how, or even if, the alcohol is impairing your brain only that it is in your breath via your lungs via your blood.  The machines do not test venous blood but arterial blood utilizing the scientific principle of Henry’s Law.  As alcohol can be at different rates throughout your body, the machine is not measuring impairment.During peak absorption...
