Montgomery Misdemeanor DUI Charges: Possible Penalties

Typically, most DUI first-offenders who are arrested by the Montgomery Police Department for operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OVI) are not charged under Ohio’s OVI statute.  Rather, Montgomery often charges its OVI cases under Montgomery’s Local OVI Ordinance (Section 73.01).

Nonetheless, the penalties provided in the Montgomery OVI Ordinance mirror state law.  Thus, the possible penalties for a first offense OVI conviction in Montgomery are:

  • A mandatory minimum jail term of three consecutive days (72 hours).   This could include a jail term, a driver intervention program or a combination of both.  The court may impose additional jail time as well up to 6 months maximum.
  • The court may order additional treatment or additional alcohol education programs to be completed.
  • Fines:  Between $375 – $1,075 for a Montgomery DUI conviction.
  • License Suspension: 6 months to 3 years.  A defendant may, however, apply for limited driving privileges while his or her license is suspended so that the defendant can drive to / from work or school.
