DUI/OVI Laws in Ohio

If the offense is a first or second OVI within 6 years, the degree of offense is a M-1, which is a misdemeanor of the first degree which is authorized up to 6 months of incarceration.  The jail time and fines are as follows: OVIChart_SecondPage Most judges in Hamilton, Clermont and Warren counties follow the recommended minimums for actual incarceration, however most also sentence to probation for the maximum amount of time allowable under statute.   Remember, not all judges will sentence to minimums.  Especially with persons with prior history of DUI, regardless of how long ago the prior DUI or OVI may have occurred.  It is important to hire an attorney who regularly practices in the county and has some working knowledge of the Judge prior to entering any plea.  The attorney should also be helpful in determining whether to take a case to trial or enter a plea as well as whether to try a case to the jury or to the bench (bench trial is same as judge trial).
