Were You Arrested For OVI?

Operating a vehicle intoxicated is also known as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or DUI, and it is illegal in Ohio. If you are arrested with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or above, you could face serious charges affecting your driver's license along with fees.

You can argue against the presumption of guilt which comes with the BAC proof in court. Ohio law is complex and it is best to do so with an experienced lawyer.

Attorney Jerry P. Purcel can discuss the many options available to you. Depending on the nature of your charge, he works with investigators, witnesses and other methods such as disputed calibration of the breathalyzer to help you resolve your OVI charge.

Are You Going Through A Divorce When Your Spouse Filed Domestic Violence Charges Against You?

An Ohio court has a right to order your firearms to be given to the police during the time a restraining order is issued against you in a domestic violence charge.

Domestic violence charges may be filed against you by:

  • Your spouse, former spouse or live-in boyfriend/girlfriend
  • Your parent, foster parent or child
  • Other children living under the same roof such as stepchildren

Your gun may be returned to you if charges are dismissed, but you will have to file a motion with the court to have it returned. You will be subject to a background check for other convictions.
