Facing DUI charges is a stressful, frightening experience. The penalties for OVI can be severe: they include license suspension, steep fines, and jail time. And these are only the immediate consequences of conviction!
Have you ever been stopped by the police? There’s a good chance of this: the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics reports that the most common reason a person has an encounter with the police is being in a traffic stop.
If you are arrested and charged with a DUI (OVI in Ohio), your license will be suspended. But what if you need to drive for work or school related reasons? Are there exceptions? And can you get your license back?
The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects people’s privacy and prevents them from being subject to “unreasonable searches and seizures.” This amendment is the basis for how law enforcement goes about performing searches of individuals and property.
