Getting back to your life starts with a strong defense.

Penalties become greater with each DUI offense.

Columbus DUI Lawyer

If you’ve been arrested for DUI in Columbus, you should know there are several possible sentencing enhancements that can increase your punishment. That includes having one or more prior DUI/OVI convictions within the past 10 years. At Akamine Law, we will determine whether it may be possible to successfully challenge any prior DUI convictions to reduce your possible punishment.

In Ohio, if you’ve been convicted of driving under the influence in the past 10 years, the district attorney can use the conviction to try to increase your sentence. If your DUI arrest occurred more than 10 years ago, your current case will be treated like a first-time Ohio DUI charge.

The punishment you face, including jail, fines, and driver’s license suspensions, will depend greatly on the number of prior DUI convictions you have, as well as your blood alcohol content (BAC) at the time of the arrest. A higher BAC could mean a harsher punishment.

Depending on the circumstances of your case we can employ a number of potential defenses in a second time DUI to potentially reduce charges or get a case dismissed:
