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...

Out of State DUI Consequences

Question: I was visiting Ohio when I received an OVI charge; what will happen to my out-of-state license? Ohio (and 45 other states) are members of the Driver's License Compact, an agreement wherein member States communicate the fact of a conviction for DUI to the "Home State". The "Home State" then takes action against the licensee under its own laws. Forty-five States are currently members of the Interstate Compact.  Michigan and Wisconsin are not part of the DLC.   Under all but a few geographical exceptions, it will be impossible for an out of State resident to avoid serious consequences in their...

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...

Ohio Out-of-State DUI Issues

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="180" caption="Image via Wikipedia"][/caption] Dayton DUI Defense Attorney Can Represent Your Out-of State DUI States use two reporting systems to share information about a DUI arrest.  The Non-Resident Violator Compact (NVRC) is a group of states that share information about an out-of-state DUI arrest.  Other states belong to the Inter-State Driver's License Compact, which operates to share information so that you have one driving record for all offenses no matter where the offense occurred.  Ohio joined the NVRC in 1985 and the Inter-State Compact in 1987. The Interstate Compact is a multi-state agreement between participating states to share...
