“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
Nationwide, the blood alcohol level (BAL) or blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit has been set at .08 percent. This means that if you have a BAC of .08 percent or higher, you are legally intoxicated and it is unlawful for you to operate a motor vehicle. Currently, the regulation allows for two adults of average height and weight to have a bottle of wine with dinner and remain under the legal limit.
However, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is urging states to lower their BAC and BAL limits to .05 percent. Many parties, including tavern and bar owners, are strongly against lowering the alcohol limit. Some of the factors that led the NTSB to issue such a statement include the following:
It’s still too soon to tell if the BAC limit in Ohio and across the country will be lowered. If you are arrested or charged with DUI, you have rights and you can fight back. Contact a criminal defense attorney for legal support.
