    As others have noted above, you should seriously consider hiring an attorney to assist you with this charge. An OVI is a serious offense -- even a first offense can carry heavy penalties and suspensions. Depending on the outcome of your case and jurisdiction, it may be possible to get driving privileges. I would advise speaking with an attorney in your area that is familiar with the rules in your county.

    I agree with all of the previous advice. Unfortunately in Ohio, an OVI conviction cannot be expunged - even if its a first offense.

    Parental discipline can be construed as domestic violence charge, but it appears that your fiance did not intend to harm anyone. Domestic violence requires intent to cause serious physical harm. This type of charge can carry prison time at the felony level plus other serious consequences for your family.
