A person who is arrested for OVI that has prior convictions for driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs will be facing harsh penalties. Sentencing in OVI cases involving second and third offenses, while still considered a misdemeanor, can include jail time of up to 1 year and more than $10,000 in fines. A fourth DUI arrest is usually charged as a felony, and could result in incarceration in a state prison.
If you have been arrested for OVI and have a prior OVI criminal history, immediately contact an Akron criminal defense attorney for legal advice. You will need a tough litigator that is experienced in OVI and DUI cases to protect your rights and build a strong defense.
There are many ways to attack the prosecution's evidence in a DUI case, beginning with any errors in police procedures at the time of your arrest, such as an illegal stop, or failure to administer a Miranda Warning. Testing results can also be challenged if there were mistakes made when the tests were given, or the equipment that was used wasn't properly maintained. A qualified OVI lawyer will know where to look for flaws in the prosecution's case that can be used in your defense.
