Regardless of your charge, you must reach out to an experienced criminal defense lawyer promptly for the best defense against your charges. Delaying contacting an attorney can lead to negative case outcomes.

Will I lose my driver’s license if I’m charged with a DUI in Huber Heights?

It’s quite possible that you will lose your license to suspension or revocation if charged with an OVI. To fight to keep your license, contact an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible to represent you.

Can I refuse a breathalyzer or sobriety test in Huber Heights?

You can refuse a breathalyzer test. However, all drivers on Ohio roads have already given implied consent to submit to a chemical test, including a breathalyzer. Hence, refusing to submit to the test violates your implied consent and may result in an automatic driver’s license suspension.

Beyond that, there may be further consequences, depending on the specifics of your circumstances.
