What does an OVI charge or accusation mean?

OVI is the legal term for ‘Operating a Vehicle while Impaired’ (or Intoxicated) in Ohio. It is an allegation of operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, drugs or a combination of both. Other states have other terms for drunk or drugged driving including; DUI, DWI, and OMVI.

Penalties for a First-Time Offense Include:

  • Mandatory Jail Time
  • Mandatory License Suspension
  • Mandatory Fines
  • Court Costs
  • Six Points on Your License

Penalties for DUI/OVI Charges Continue to Change and Become More Severe.

Extra jail time and additional penalties are in place for defendants who were arrested with over 0.17% BAC. Many Ohio residents who face DUI/OVI charges are surprised to learn that a mandatory license suspension is regularly imposed by the BMV at the time of arrest.

Administrative License Suspension (ALS)

From the time of your arrest, your license is likely to be restricted or suspended. In Ohio, the law states that you will face an administrative license suspension from the BMV. The length is 1 year for refusal to test, and 90 days for testing with a minimum BAC of 0.08%.
