Focused On Aggressively Defending You From OVI Charges
In Ohio, drunk driving is referred to as OVI (operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs). Many people when facing an OVI or drunk driving charge think that there is nothing to do but plead guilty and hope for the best. What they do not know is that the consequences of a drunk driving conviction may go far beyond the initial criminal case.
If you have been accused of, arrested for or charged with OVI, turn to a skilled and experienced lawyer at the Cleveland-area office of John Shryock Co. L.P.A. With more than 40 years of experience, founding attorney John Shryock is an exceptional ally in the fight to protect your rights in a drunk driving case and other criminal law matters.
What Happens If You Are Convicted?
In Ohio, any drunk driving conviction after the first offense can lead to charges of increasing seriousness, even felonies. A court can order an offender to have restricted plates put on their car, to have an ignition interlock device put on their car, to attend expensive counseling sessions and to lose their right to drive. Higher insurance rates, fines and court costs, and possible job problems can also result from a simple drunk driving conviction.
In many cases, there are things a competent attorney can do to help avoid or at least lessen the punishments and negative outcomes associated with an OVI/drunk driving charge. The first thing you need to know is that the evidence can be challenged, including the officer’s right to stop you, to test you, and even the results of your test and the machine it was done on. To have the best chance for a successful outcome, you need a lawyer who knows the law and knows your rights.
