Dayton area residents who have been arrested for drunk driving understand how scary a situation this can be. When a person is facing an OVI charge they should understand that a conviction can bring serious penalties. Just a simple mistake can lead to years of consequences.

A woman from Troy has been arrested for allegedly driving impaired with a 3-year-old child in her car. The woman was driving eastbound on I-70 in an allegedly erratic fashion. The state patrol received a call about a reckless driver and were able to locate her after observing her driving off the side of the road and hitting a bridge wall. The woman told the officer that she was upset because she was on the way to take her child to the children’s hospital for surgery and earlier that day someone had gone through her car and stolen items.

Everyone makes mistakes sometimes. Everyone faces tough times where they are stressed and upset over something that happens to them. Just because a person makes a mistake doesn’t mean they should be punished for a lifetime. If a Dayton area resident is facing OVI charges they may want to speak with an attorney who specializes in criminal defense. An attorney can review the circumstances surrounding the arrest and advise their client on their legal options. An attorney offers their client aggressive representation in the interest of protecting their client’s future. They will investigate any irregularities surrounding the stop and arrest and have this evidence thrown out. An attorney also understands when taking a plea deal is appropriate and when the case should go to trial.

Many Dayton area residents face an OVI during their driving career. These mistakes can cause serious consequences for those who are convicted including thousands of dollars in fines, jail time, and a suspended license. Having a legal professional on their side can minimize a defendant’s penalties.
