An Out-of-State OVI Offense Enhances A Wright-Patterson OVI

An Out-of-State OVI Offense Enhances A Wright-Patterson OVI Babb & Rowland and DaytonDUI proudly serve the military community in and around Wright-Patterson A.F.B..  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 Wright-Patterson OVI.  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...

DUI & The International Driver’s License

In Ohio, there is no such thing as an international driver’s license for United States citizens.  If you are using an “international driver’s license” in place of a state-issued license, you should stop immediately. It is illegal, and if caught, you will face criminal charges.  If your Ohio State driver's license has been revoked due to a DUI (now called OVI), you cannot drive here on any other license. If you have a valid license from somewhere else, you may be able to drive in other jurisdictions. Check with local counsel.If, however, you are a new arrival to the United States...

An Ohio OVI Conviction May Prevent Entry Into Canada (by DaytonDUI)

Driving Under the Influence May Prevent Entry Into CanadaCanada places strict limits on who may enter.  One of the most vexing restrictions is the Criminal Inadmissibility due to a DUI charge.  Shockingly, you may also be denied admission due to the conduct of a dependent who has a prior DUI offense.  Obviously, the best way to prevent a problem is to hire an aggressive DUI/OVI attorney who will fight to prevent a conviction.  Tell your Ohio OVI attorney about any Canadian travel you regularly take or may be required to take for your business.  However, if you have been previously...

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

Americans With DUI Convictions Being Turned Away By Canadian Border Guards

Vancouver Sun Reports That Restrictions on DUI Convictions May Be Loosened The Canadian government has, for the past few years, conducted an unprecedented crackdown on Americans who have been convicted of drunk driving.  By law, U.S. citizens with DUI convictions can enter Canada only if certain conditions are met. They can enter if they have had 10 crime-free years since their conviction. If at least five years have passed, they can apply for a visa, but applications can take more than a year to process.  The last option is to apply for a temporary resident permit, but these are handed out...
