How long does a typical OVI Defense case last?

If you plead yourself to be “not guilty” then even under normal circumstances, a typical OVI defense case may last for several months as it passes through the DMV and the courts. More complicated cases may extend to a period of six months to a year. Cases that involve multiple priors or a felony such as an accident may take several years to be settled.

An exact estimate of the correct duration of the case can only be made after reviewing all the specifics related to a case.
