Driving Under DUI Suspension in Ohio

Upon an OVI / DUI conviction, your driving privileges are suspended typically for a minimum of six months but upwards of years. (You can see the full breakdown of OVI penalties in a chart form here.) If you are found to be driving while your license is suspended for a DUI conviction, you may be charged under Ohio Revised Code 4510.14. Driving under OVI suspension is a misdemeanor of the first degree and you shall be sentenced to the following penalties if convicted:

  • Mandatory jail term of three consecutive days or house arrest with electronic monitoring for at minimum 30 consecutive days
  • A fine of up to $1,000 ($250 at minimum)
  • Mandatory Class 7 Suspension of up to one year
  • Mandatory vehicle immobilization and impound plates for 30 days if the vehicle you were driving was registered in your name

You also face an additional six (6) points on your driver’s license.

With a charge like this, where you face restrictions on your movement and activity like jail or house arrest if convicted, it is imperative that you have someone on your side to represent your rights and interests. DUI and OVI sentencing law in Ohio is complex and it changes frequently, so you want a lawyer who works with these cases daily and can fight for the best possible outcome.
