By Criminal Defense Attorney Mark J. Babb Many clients have asked us about the consequences of getting an out-of-state DUI.  The exact answer is different for every situation, but it generally relates to something called the interstate compact.  The interstate compact is a system put in place where states communicate driving infractions and other driver’s license information to each other.  Generally, states honor suspensions, forfeitures, and other traffic consequences from other states.  If you are convicted of an out of state DUI, the penalties in the state where the conviction took place are generally limited to that state.  However, if your...

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...

The Interstate Driver License Compact is an agreement between 45 member states to exchange arrest information for certain traffic violations, including DUI.  For example, if you are arrested in Ohio for DUI, Ohio will inform your home state.  Your home state may take no action, immediate action or treat the offense as if it occurred in your home state for licensure purposes.  The intended goal of the Compact was to prevent the occurrence of multiple driving records that were “hidden” from other states.  Currently there are five states that are...
