    Default OVI Charges in Ohio

    I, 22 was physically arrested for an OVI in Ohio. I had a prior DUI about a year ago from a different county. I consented to a breathalizer and it was .097. Will they be able to use my prior DUI in a different county against me since it was the same state. Plus, the officer also arrested my 19 year old boyfriend was given an underage consumption and never breathalized. He openly admitted to drinking. Is there a way to get a second time reduced to 1st offense?

    Your prior can be counted.

    The process of trying to get a reduction in charge is called "plea bargaining". Whether or not the prosecutor will offer a plea deal, and how good a deal you can get, is something to discuss with a local lawyer who is familiar with the prosecutor's policies.
