When a driver is convicted of OVI or DUI, he or she may be punished with a driver’s license suspension that either partially or fully restricts driving privileges. Individuals who are caught driving while a suspension is in place can face criminal charges.
A driver may be charged with this offense under two different circumstances:
A conviction for driving with an OVI/DUI license suspension can result in up to 180 days in jail, with a mandatory three-day jail sentence. If you have found yourself facing charges, put an experienced DUI attorney in Cincinnati on your side as soon as possible.

Just because you have been accused of driving during a period of DUI license suspension does not mean that you are guilty. There are a number of potential defenses our Cincinnati DUI attorneys can implement to protect your rights and pursue the most favorable outcome possible on your behalf. A police officer or the Bureau of Motor Vehicles may have made a mistake. It is not uncommon for the BMV to fail to update a person’s driving record, or for law enforcement to charge people under the wrong section.
In some cases, it may be most beneficial to work out a plea deal in which your suspension is reduced to a charge in which the three-day mandatory jail sentence does not apply. Talk to a member of our team today to discuss which defenses and strategies are available to you based on the circumstances of your case.
