What Can I Do

When you notice that you are about to be stopped on the way back from a Browns football game or a night in the Flats with friends or family, you might justifiably be concerned that a DUI | OVI conviction will cause a major disruption in your life. A conviction can result in jail time, significant fines, suspension of your driver’s license, driver intervention programs, continuous alcohol monitoring (CAM), mandatory treatment programs, ignition interlock devices, impound or immobilization of your vehicle, electronically monitored house arrest (EHMA), restricted plates and/or probation.
