Brown Law Office OVI/DUI News

The Ninth District Court of Appeals recently issued a decision regarding OVI specifications in a felony OVI indictment.  In State v. Morse, 2017-Ohio-9300, the defendant challenged the subject matter jurisdiction of the trial court due to the fact that the indictment did not contain precise dates of the defendant’s prior OVI convictions.  The Ninth District rejected that challenge, holding that a defective indictment renders the charges voidable, not void, therefore not implicating the trial court’s subject matter jurisdiction.  A link to the decision can be found here.
