Ohio Has Strict Traffic Violation Laws
In Ohio, traffic laws are strict. The state is filled with speed traps for unsuspecting motorists. If you are charged with a DUI for the first time, a guilty verdict could lead to a minimum jail sentence of three days and an automatic license suspension. The state’s unforgiving points system means the smallest infraction could lead to a revoked license.
If you have been issued a traffic violation, you need to learn about your options. Attorney Michael A. Newland can give you the guidance you need from his Hamilton office.
The Advice You Need
Mr. Newland is well-versed in Ohio’s traffic laws and charges, including:
- Speeding tickets
- Traffic tickets
- Moving violations
- Driving with a suspended license
When you sit down with him, he will help you understand the potential consequences of your charge — and what he can do to help you. While completely eliminating the charge is unlikely with Ohio’s stringent laws, reducing the sentence is not outside possibility. Mr. Newland’s experience and familiarity with local judges mean he knows exactly what to say to get the best opportunity for a lighter sentence.
Avoid Incriminating Yourself
In these situations, it is also important to do your part. You are entitled to a lawyer in any traffic violation case, whether it is a parking ticket or a DUI. Do not talk to police or make a statement without an attorney present. Additionally, do not share any information about your case with anyone, on the internet or otherwise. It is easier than you think to incriminate yourself, and you want to avoid that at all costs.
