Can an Ohio DUI/ OVI Conviction be expunged from my record?
In October 2018, Ohio passed new expungement laws allowing for the sealing of multiple criminal records for eligible offenders.
Currently you cannot expunge an Ohio OVI/ DUI conviction under Ohio law. The law that passed in October 2018, excludes minor misdemeanor offenses, traffic violations, and OVI charges.
Everybody makes mistakes at some point and time in their life. Whenever these mistakes involve an Ohio OVI conviction the implications can alter the course of an individual’s future. Whether or not the person is actually guilty, an Ohio DUI charge doesn’t have to be the end of the road.
Because there is no expungement of an Ohio DUI / OVI conviction, your alternatives to protect your future are gone.
