Transcript On DUI OVI

Good afternoon my name is Jeremy levy and Iím an attorney in Toledo Ohio, handling cases that deal with criminal defense civil litigation and domestic relations. Today I'm going to be talking about DUIs and OVI which are the exact same thing.

People always say to me, Jeremy, what should I do if I'm ever stopped in and the police officers suspect that Iím intoxicated? Well I tell them DUIs are tough because it's a crime that you don't know if you're committing or not. If you are at .07 blood-alcohol content you are not violating the law and if you're at a .08 higher you are.

There's also a section of the statute that says if you're intoxicated in that intoxication impairs your ability to operate a motor vehicle it doesn't matter what your blood alcohol content is, you still can be found guilty of a DUI. Now there are some things that you can do to help prevent the charging of a DUI. If you are stopped and the police officer does believe that you have are intoxicated here are some things to consider; you are under no obligation to perform the field sobriety test this includes to Gaze Nystagmus the walking turn and the one-legged stand. Gaze Nystagmus is when the police officer takes a pen and ask you to follow it with your eyes without moving your head. He's watching the pupils in your eyes go left to right anything it there's a smooth pursuit or if it shakes a little bit as it goes by. That shakiness is considered a sign of intoxication. The one leg stand is standing on one leg and holding your balance and the walk in turn is walking nine steps turning and walking back.

As I said before you're under no obligation to perform these tasks and there are no repercussions if you do not follow those instructions. If you simply tell the officers you do not wish to perform the field sobriety test there are no repercussions that will come to you. Now that's different from the blood alcohol machine, a breathalyzer, at the station.

The breathalyzer at the station is admissible in court unlike the portable breath test on the scene. The blood alcohol machine or the breathalyzer at the station does have a repercussion if you refuse to blow that repercussion is an administrative license suspension which is automatic at the time that you refused. However, I should mention that if you blow a .08 or higher you will receive the same ALS suspension, so if you believe that you are intoxicated you should not blow the repercussion will be the same.

That's my advice for today I DUIs if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to give me a call (419) 243-8989 Jeremy Levy Attorney at Law. You can also visit my website at www.toledo-attorney.com. Thank you

The State of Cannabis Laws for the Toledo Resident

The Toledo cannabis consumer must be aware of the laws; Federal, State, and Local.

After Toledo Residents voted to lower the cannabis possession penalty to the Cityís lowest penalty, there has been much confusion as to the state of the law.† In reality, the cannabis consumer/possessor must be concerned with Federal, State, and Local law.

Under Federal Law, a consumer/possessor can be charged under strict, outdated laws.† The CSA carries a penalty of $1000 fine and 1 year in prison.† To be charged under Federal law would be rare, however, it is possible.

Ohioís cannabis law has been somewhat decriminalized.† However, possession up to 100 grams still tarnishes an offenderís record, although itís only a minor misdemeanor, or a civil citation.† Chances are any illegal cannabis possession will be charged under Ohio Law.† Also, paraphernalia is a 4th degree misdemeanor carrying a maximum penalty of 30 days in jail and $250 fine.

In terms of the Toledo City Law, the passed Ordinance would still be the best.† In terms of being charged under the City Code, the best chance of this happens when being pulled over by friendly local police officers.† This does not mean, that if stopped in the City of Toledo you could not be charged under the stateís more restrictive statute.

In reality, the State law would and could take precedence if either the police or prosecution want to strictly enforce it.

In conclusion, a cannabis consumer/possessor is still subjected to the strict CSA, in any part of the country.† However, with local law and state law more often applied, chances are that a charge would be brought under them.† Therefore, in Ohio, up to 100 grams (3oz.) are considered ďpersonalĒ will get you a court date and record, and fines, but no jail time.
