Legislators from both parties are cosponsoring a bill that would toughen prison sentences for the state’s repeat drunken-driving offenders. When introduced in both houses of the legislature this week, the bill was accompanied by a petition with more than 12-thousand signatures supporting a tougher law. Under the bill, a driver who accumulates five D-U-I convictions, no matter how far back they go, would face a maximum prison sentence of five years for a sixth offense. Officials in the Ohio bureau of motor vehicles say nearly 15-thousand Ohio drivers have at least five D-U-I convictions.
