Plot using DSolve HELP

I have a problem with what I am showing below.

Step one is my equation.
eq = i * v[t]/r +c v'[t]

Step two I want to solve it, using DSolve, and put my values in as shown.
Please note, that "i= 0", and my IC is v[0]== -70.

sol=v[t]/.DSolve[{eq/.{c->3, i->0, r->2.5} ,v[0]==-70}, v[t], t]
 {-70 *-0.133333 t}
The results are shown above.

Thus next step is to plot it.
p1=Plot[sol,{t,-20,140}]

My problem is that I get a line from -70 on the vertical axis going in a
curve up to the horizontal axis out to 140.  The vertical axis is "v" and
the horizontal is "t".

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks
Jake
