Q: husband blew a .075......What are chances of getting it dropped/no license lost
A: That depends heavily upon what other evidence there was that he was impaired. He is under the test limit (unless he is under 21), so a charge would be based upon being impaired, not being over the limit. The bottom line is that a DUI is not a DIY project. He should get an attorney.
Douglas A. Ball agrees with this answer
A: A .08 is the legal limit. Many states have been considering lowering that limit to as low as .05, so there is a chance that he could still be charged with an impairment charge. Have a lawyer in your area review his field sobriety tests and get full discovery, including any audio or video, statements, police reports and any other information the State has. An OVI/DUI/DWI charge is permanent in Ohio at this time and there are no provisions for expungment. This is a very serious matter. Consult with a local attorney in your area (many offer free initial consultations) to discuss his options.
