My friend was in jail waiting for her sentencing hearing that was scheduled for June 26th. She called me yesterday saying they woke her up in the morning and brought her to court for sentencing on June 1st. 25 days early with no notification. It wasn’t changed on the court docket until May 31st.... View More
The court is empowered to sentence a defendant immediately following a conviction. If you plead guilty, the judge tells you that as part of the conversation you have before the plea to ensure you know what you are doing. But they usually don't sentence immediately in Cuyahoga County Common...View More
I am a student in college as The defendant in an evictions case that has lasted 3 years. The plaintiff was granted a writ of possession 90 days ago. can they recharge me for non payment of rent When an amount was never Discussed, agreed upon, or even acknowledged, with lack of a lease..?
Evictions proceed in two phases. The first phase is about possession of the property. The second phase is about money owing. The reason to split it up like that is simple: when you start an eviction proceeding you do not know how much money the tenant owes. Perhaps the house is fine, and it is just...View More
You can talk to the child support enforcement folks at your local prosecutor's office, but he probably owes that money to your mother, not you. So, they would be more likely to listen to her complaint than your complaint. Of course, before encouraging the State to go after your dad you should...View More

Something as broad as any case the appellant has won at the Supreme Court is unlikely to help you too much but here are two from a quick search of the Supreme Court's website: In re R.K., 152 Ohio St.3d 316, 2018-Ohio-23 and In re C.F., 113 Ohio St.3d 73, 2007-Ohio-1104.

Become the assignee of the deceased member's portion of interest in the company? Or can the LLC's operating agreement keep them from receiving any of the profits generated yearly by the LLC until dissolution of the company?
One spouse may certainly inherit the other’s interest in the LLC or part of it. It’s not exactly automatic. Exactly what depends on the total estate, other heirs, and terms of any will, prenuptial agreement, or other contracts. Inheriting is not exactly the same as being an assignee but the...View More

It’s been indicted, they aren’t just going to drop it in favor of a civil suit. You’re facing criminal charges with criminal penalties. Probation is certainly possible. It will help a lot if you can pay back the money and it may be your path to avoiding conviction on the criminal charge. You...View More
Assume theft charges have been filed (I don’t know how guy would’ve been caught otherwise). And when I say can he keep the money I mean to use after he serves his time. Can he refuse to return the money?
A cyber criminal who steals billions and gets caught is facing decades in prison on both a state and federal level. He or she needs to hire an attorney ASAP. As for the money, they will do everything they can to get it back. It will be ordered as restitution, if he is convicted. The government will...View More
Yes, of course she can. While it is frustrating to be the subject of false reports, the police are not going to assume one report is false just because a previous one was. After all, doing so would be tantamount to concluding that a person who lied in one report couldn't possibly be the victim...View More
You need to talk to a lawyer in Texas. The rules vary from state to state but the prosecutor may well seek to introduce such evidence as evidence of prior bad acts even if you do not testify and even though the offense is neither recent or serious as convicted. It's evidence rule 404b in Ohio...View More

The law does not require the schools to allow any particular person to volunteer and there are literally hundreds of reasons from the mundane (we have enough help) to the quite serious (this individual set fire to the building last time they were here) that someone might be turned away.
You amend a complaint by filing a new document titled Amended Complaint with the changes you are making. If suing the prosecutor, one would generally sue the elected individual in their representative capacity, and if alleging malicious wrongdoing, in their personal capacity as well, along with any...View More

Yes they can. Falsification is a separate crime completely apart from whatever else may or may not have happened. If anything the DV being dropped hurts you because it tends to suggest you did in fact lie. You should get an attorney.
No. The First Amendment protects you from government interference, not private parties. Apps, employers, and other private organizations and companies are free to allow access to only those who adhere to polices regulating speech.
If it happened in two different places at two different times, how is it the same charge? If you mean can you be charged with the same crime more than once the answer is yes, if you commit the same offense more than once, you can be charged more than once.
If there is a no contact order arising out of a criminal case, or out a juvenile court case, children's services cannot override such an order and permit visitation because they would literally be facilitating a crime. It is against the law to violate a no contact order.
If the folks at the EEOC gave you your walking papers, which are called "notice of right to sue," you will trouble finding a lawyer to take the case unless you pay upfront. If they thought you had a good case, the EEOC would have kept it.
