“When I was arrested by the Feds on Drug Conspiracy charges, they told me I was facing mandatory life in federal prison without the possibility of parole. I knew that I was innocent, but I was scared . . . so I knew that I would have to find a lawyer who was not afraid of the Feds and would take my case to trial. I chose Greg Robey because he is a fighter. After over 2 weeks in a federal jury trial, I was found Not Guilty of all charges. My family and I am forever grateful to Mr. Robey.” -L.B., Mansfield, Ohio
When it comes to an OVI (operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs), you don’t get a free pass on your first offense. Even first-time offenders face serious consequences. First, there are the social and professional repercussions. Friends, family, coworkers and your employer are likely to be disappointed by your behavior. You may even have difficulty obtaining future employment. After all, you will have a criminal record. And if all of that isn’t bad enough, you face the following legal punishments in Ohio:
If you are older than 21, it is illegal to drive with a BAC of 0.08 percent or higher. The BAC threshold for drivers younger than 21 is only 0.02 percent, and for commercial drivers the limit is 0.04 percent. The moment you are arrested for OVI, contact an experienced defense lawyer. You may be able to fight the charges, stay out of jail and keep your driving privileges.
