Felony DUI / OVI Charges

Defense of Felony DUI/OVI Charges

In Ohio, a person may be charged with felony DUI/OVI if:

  • This is his or her fourth or fifth DUI/OVI within six years.
  • This is his or her sixth DUI/OVI within 20 years.
  • He or she has a prior felony DUI/OVI conviction.

The penalties for a felony DUI/OVI are harsh, and they include driver’s license revocation, vehicle forfeiture, prison time, mandatory treatment program and more. Do not take a DUI felony charge lightly! You need an experienced defense attorney who can minimize the consequences you face as much as possible.
