Lancaster, KY asked in DUI / DWI for Ohio

Q: My husband has 2 ky duis and 1 ohio all before 2012. He just received another. Would he be sentenced like a 4th?

I am just wondering if thw sentencing would be like the 1st all over because of the length of time since the other 3?

He was arrested yesterday and has court Monday morning. I cannot find an attorney open on the weekend? I am not sure what we should do?

A: The look back period in Ohio is 10 years. So any convictions after March/April of 2009 would be counted. Also, that look back period is just for the enhanced penalties. The prosecutor and judge will definitely care about the history. He should get an attorney.
