About Multiple DUI's / OVI's
Arrests for those with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Time Charges
If you have an earlier conviction on a DUI offense, you are in serious trouble if you are once again arrested. Ohio lawmakers have increased penalties for those who have repeat DUI convictions. In cases of a second DUI conviction, the penalties include 10 days in jail, 20 if your blood alcohol concentration level is a high reading or if you refused the test, a suspension of your driver's license for up to 5 years, mandatory yellow DUI plates when you are again allowed to drive, as well as the installation of an ignition interlock device. Your vehicle will be immobilized for up to 90 days, and you will owe up to $1625 in fines. A third DUI conviction has even more restrictions, and if you should get a 4 th, you will be charged with a felony DUI and it is possible you will never be able to have a license in the state of Ohio again and could spend up to 30 months in state prison. It is critical that you get legal help from an experienced Columbus DUI defense lawyer at once in such cases.
