Ohio StateWaverly, Ohio. A shocking story has revealed that DUI offenders can make a $1,000 “donation” to the police department and be found guilty of a reduced charge when arrested for DUI. This deal is even extended to defendants that have multiple DUI convictions.

DUI defendants of Waverly just pay the “donation” and avoid jail, and license suspensions. None of these deals are even reported to the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Those that cannot afford the $1,000 are not offered the deal.
