PENALTY CHARTS


Included in this section are two sentencing charts prepared by Judge Jennifer P. Weiler in her work with the Ohio Supreme Court Judicial College. They summarize portions of the Ohio traffic law. The charts have been distributed throughout the State of Ohio and have become standard reference tools for judges, magistrates, attorneys and litigants.

The first chart is entitled ""Ohio OVI/Physical Control Misdemeanor Offense Penalties"". The first page details the penalties for the offenses of operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, underage operating under the influence, and physical control. The second page concerns the length of administrative license suspensions imposed upon arrest and the process for appealing such suspensions.

The second chart is entitled ""Ohio Driver’s License Offense Penalties"". Both pages of the chart list the penalty provisions for common offenses such as driving under suspension, driving without a license, and wrongful entrustment. The second page also has a summary of when driving privileges may be granted and the requirements for the same.

Both charts are updated on an ongoing basis to reflect changes in the law. (rev 9/15/14)
