Suppose your DUI charge was the first time you were ever arrested. Many people think that a first offense will surely result in very few consequences, but that assumption could be very wrong.

Why Is It Important to Have an Experienced DUI Lawyer Handle Your Springboro DUI Case?
Ohio’s DUI law is tough. If convicted, even of a first DUI offense, you face a minimum of three days up to a maximum of six months in jail, over $1,000 in fines and fees, and a license suspension of six months up to three years. The impact of this punishment could easily overwhelm your life.
Imagine trying to explain to your boss that you can’t make it to work because you got arrested and must serve time in jail—even if only for three days. Or imagine trying to keep a job when you cannot drive. Your lawyer can do everything legally allowed to stop you from experiencing the worst of these consequences.
The presumption of innocence has been the bedrock of our criminal justice system since our country’s inception. It means that the State must prove you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt before they can convict you.
