What are the Possible DUI Outcomes?

Just because you are charged with a DUI or OVI does not mean you are guilty.  The state must prove every element of the offense beyond a reasonable doubt.  If they fail to do so, you will be found not guilty.

There are also other options besides a trial, including reducing the charge to a “wet” reckless or a physical control.

There are many ways to attack and defend a DUI.  The Government has a high burden to meet to prove you were driving a vehicle under the influence.

Furthermore, it is possible the Field Sobriety Tests or the breath test were not done in compliance with State of Ohio or NHSTA Standards.

Contact DUI Lawyer Nicholas Klingensmith to help beat your DUI.


Not All DUI’s Are The Same

DUI – OVI laws and DUI – OVI penalties vary depending on many factors.  Some of these factors include:

  • A DUI is considered “High Tier” when a person blows over .17.
  • A person may be charged with a separate charge called a “Refusal” if they have been convicted of a DUI in the past 20 years and refuse a breath test.
  • The number of prior DUI – OVI Convictions.
  • The location of your DUI.  Different counties have different policies when dealing with a DUI.  Nicholas has experience defending DUI’s throughout Ohio including:  Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Clermont County, Butler County, West Chester, Mason and just about every court in Southwest Ohio.


Not All DUI Attorneys Are The Same
