OVI, child endangerment charges stem from Ohio accident

When a person is charged for a crime, he or she must enter a plea stating guilt or innocence as part of the criminal process. In some situations, an individual may be able to strike a bargain beforehand that allows for a lesser sentence if a guilty plea is later entered. However, an accused person may wish to plead not guilty to charges such as OVI, and in turn, that individual may want to create a defense that could work toward maintaining his or her innocence.

A driver in Ohio will likely wish to create a defense after he recently pleaded not-guilty to OVI and other charges. It was reported that the man was allegedly involved in a car accident one night at approximately 10 p.m. It was also noted that the man's children were purportedly in the vehicle at the time of the accident, though it was not mentioned how many children.

After the accident, authorities apparently conducted a breath test, and the man's blood-alcohol level was allegedly over twice the legal limit. As a result of the situation, the man was charged for operating a vehicle under the influence and child endangerment. The man pleaded not guilty to those charges.

By entering this plea, the man should have the opportunity to defend himself against the OVI and child endangerment allegations. In preparation for his case, he may wish to learn more about Ohio court proceedings for such situations and various strategies for creating a meaningful defense. It is also important to remember that accused parties are considered innocent unless otherwise proved in a court of law.
