Loveland Misdemeanor DUI Charges: Possible Penalties

Typically, most DUI first-offenders who are caught by the Loveland Police Department under suspicion of operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OVI) are not charged under the Ohio Statute prohibiting impaired driving.  Instead, Loveland typically charges its OVI cases under Loveland’s Local Ordinance.  The Loveland Ordinance also states the penalties for a first offense OVI conviction in Loveland, which are:

  • A mandatory minimum jail term of three consecutive days (72 hours).   This could include a jail term, an intervention program or a combination of both.  The court may impose a longer jail term in addition, up to 6 months.
  • The Loveland Mayor’s Court may order participation in a driver’s intervention program in leiu of jail time.  In addition, the court may order additional treatment or education programs to be completed.
  • Fines:  Between $375 – $1,075 for a Loveland DUI conviction.
  • License Suspension: 6 months to 3 years.  The court may, however, grant limited driving privileges during the time of the suspension for work or school.
