I got Charged with a DUI and the Police Took My License?

In Ohio the legislature has passed a system called the administrative license suspension systemIf you refuse to take a chemical test or test over the .08 limit they can immediately suspend your license and seize it. 

 

Most clients ask “How can they do that, what about due process.”  The way they are able to get around due process and the presumption of innocence is by saying that it’s a civil not a criminal penalty.  The right to drive is not a fundamental constitutional right it’s only a privilege.  I believe that it is unconstitutional to take your license before you have been convicted.
