Frequently Asked Questions

What are “Mandatory Minimums” in a DUI case?

Mandatory minimums are the minimum penalties that you are facing if you are charged with a first-time DUI. They are: a $250.00 fine, a 6-month license suspension, 3 days in jail or a 3 day sentence at an alcohol intervention program and 6 points on your license. If your blood alcohol level is greater than .17, the penalties are increased.

What is Community Control?

Community Control is the proper term in Ohio criminal cases for what used to be known as “probation”. It means that rather than serving a jail sentence, you will be monitored by the Court, and will be required to meet certain conditions if you wish to avoid a jail sentence. Receiving a community control sanction will depend on many factors, including your past record, the severity of the crime, and the damage to any victims.

Do the Police have to read me my rights?

No. At least not unless they are going to interrogate you. Your best bet though, is to say nothing, or as little as possible, until you have consulted with an attorney.
