To the north of the humming city of Columbus sits the tranquil suburb of Westerville. The city of 36,000 is perched in both Delaware County and Franklin County, and Route 3, the highway connecting Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati runs right through its heart.
For almost 150 years, a town ordinance prevented the sale of alcohol in the city, earning it the nickname “The Dry Capital of the World.” That’s never stopped people from drinking in the city, even sparking the “Westerville Whiskey Wars.” In fact, Delaware County and Franklin County had a combined total of over 2,000 OVI enforcements in 2014, according to data from the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
In Ohio, a DUI is known as an OVI. The charge could have ramifications that forever change your life. A lessor could see a DUI / OVI on your record and decide not to rent you that new home. If you’re applying to colleges, admissions officers might see the conviction and think twice about your acceptance. It could be a major factor in a custody battle for your child. You could be buried in debt, put in jail and labeled a felon for the rest of your life.
