The consquences for a DUI in Kentucky or OVI in Ohio are so severe that you may make the situation worse if you try to represent yourself. The courts consider many factors, including but not limited to: 1. Did you take the roadside test? If so, what were the results? 2. Did you take a breathalyzer? If so, what was the result? If not, why? 3. Did you actually drive the vehicle or attempt to drive the vehicle? 4. What were the circumstances surrounding your arrest? 5. Were you involved in an accident or did you drive recklessly? 6. Was anyone hurt? 7. How well did you cooperate with the arresting officer? Advantages To Hiring A DUI / OVI Lawyer 1.
