What is OUI or DUI?

OUI and/or DUI is defined as operating a motor vehicle while impaired with a blood alcohol level (BAL) of .08% or higher, a chemical substance, or a controlled substance.

Because driving under the influence is so dangerous, the penalties for doing so are severe in Ohio.

The prosecution in a criminal case bears a heavy burden of proving every element of the crime beyond a reasonable doubt to a unanimous jury. Unfortunately, they are strongly aided in this task by a built-in tendency of most jury members to side with the prosecution from the start; many people simply trust law enforcement and believe that the police would not have arrested a person who was not guilty in the first place. As you are probably aware, however, there are many reasons why this may not be so.

Fortunately, as the accused in a criminal case, you have valuable tools on your side, including the constitutional right to a trial by a fair and impartial jury, and the right to have effective counsel working for your defense. Attorney Exton uses every strategy and defense available to make sure you are never convicted when the evidence does not support a guilty verdict or where unconstitutional or improper police methods were used in the search, arrest or prosecution of the accused.


"It is essential that you retain the services of a respected, competent and experienced criminal defense attorney who is equipped to handle your case properly."
