I got my dui last night at 6 am because my car was parked on the side of a suburban road, asleep, with light vomit on my clothes. I don't remember stepping into the car and I don't remember taking a blood test but I scored a really high blood alcohol content level, that I was to the emergency room. Should I plead no contest or get a lawyer?
You should hire an attorney or apply for the public defender. Even as a juvenile an OVI can carry serious consequences. If your car was parked and you were asleep you may have strong defenses available to you that a lawyer can present on your behalf. You are welcome to call me for a free consultation.
Assuming that your offense occurred in Stark County, your charges will be forwarded to the Stark County Juvenile Prosecutor's Office for a review of what you will ultimately be charged with. The process can be lengthy, and you may not receive a formal complaint for several weeks. I agree with my colleagues; you should contact an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your potential options.
I regularly appear in the Stark County Juvenile Court, and would be happy to discuss your case in more detail.
