Police never read me Miranda rights or they read them to me after I was already in the police car or already at the station arrested for OVI. If they didn’t read me my rights, can I get my OVI case dismissed or reduced?
The answer, like many questions in the law, is: It depends.
It depends on the facts of your case and what happened leading up to your arrest.
To make matters worse, the state of the law in Ohio on this issue is somewhat in flux. Specifically, Ohio courts are split on whether or not the police can make you sit in the front of the cruiser and ask questions about how much you had to drink without first reading Miranda warnings.
