Along with the other penalties associated with an OVI, Ohio has minimum mandatory fines. On a first offense OVI, the minimum fine you will be ordered to pay is $375. However, that is only the minimum and the judge can fine you more if he feels it is appropriate. In fact, the maximum fine on a first offense is $1075 so your fine may be anywhere in between.
Since OVI is an enhanced offense, each OVI conviction requires a higher mandatory minimum fine. A second offense has a minimum fine of $525 while a third offense has an $850 minimum. Keep in mind these are only the minimums and it is possible to be fined more.
