Good evening, I believe I already assisted you with this question a little earlier. Do you have any new or follow-up questions that I can help you with? Or are you interested in getting another opinion from a different attorney on the same question?

I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. I see you asked for a second opinion.

Expert:  Zoey_ JD replied 11 months ago.

In the State of Ohio, Physical Control is a misdemeanor traffic offense. It carries a maximum possible penalty of 6 months in jail and/or a fine of $1,000. It is not considered a moving violation, however, so there are no points on your license upon conviction. License suspension is not mandatory but can be up to a year at the discretion of the judge.
