What is an Aggravated DUI in Ohio?

Sentence enhancements for DUI in Ohio include:

  • Extremely high blood alcohol content
  • Refusing chemical blood alcohol test such as a breathalyzer
  • Multiple DUI/OVI offenses
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Causing an accident, injury, or property damage

Free Consultation with Our Cleveland Aggravated OVI Attorneys

While a DUI/OVI arrest may appear cut-and-dry, a skilled Cleveland aggravated OVI attorney from the firm can dispute your arrest on several grounds and potentially have your criminal charges dropped. Charges of excessively high blood alcohol for example can be challenged by calling into question the breathalyzer device which was used. If the device had not been properly calibrated or regularly maintained as it should have been, this could be grounds for questioning its results.
