Matthew Williams' answer There’s no way to quote an accurate figure here without being a local attorney who knows whether there will be a fight about the test, and who the judge would be to resolve such a fight. Obviously, if everyone is willing to have the test performed, it will be a lot cheaper than fighting about it.
Matthew Williams' answer Yes. Your contract with the bondsman is you pay them and they get him out. They did that. It’s not their fault he went right back in. Folks are often in hurry to get out, but you’re money is better spent on a lawyer than a bondsman.
Matthew Williams' answer If the charge itself is a minor misdemeanor, you can be arrested on it. But many offense become a higher level that would permit arrest after multiple offense. Also, you could be arrested for contempt of court if a judge ordered the tint removed.
Matthew Williams' answer You can file a paternity lawsuit in court seeking an order for DNA testing. But beware, once paternity is established, she can get support, and back support, and contribution to medical expenses from the birth.
Matthew Williams' answer That sounds like a terribly difficult ethics question. You can check with Board of Professional Conduct in Columbus to see if there is an opinion on the matter. Their number is 614- 387-9370. It’s not a question for a short Internet forum.
Matthew Williams' answer Illegal conveyance is a serious crime. Her bond could be lowered. Anything’s possible. But I wouldn’t count on it. You need to speak privately with some attorneys regarding fees since they vary considerably from lawyer to lawyer and market to market. But it will be several thousand dollars at a minimum.
Matthew Williams' answer The level of offense for misuse of credit cards is governed by the amount of money involved and the nature of victim, not previous convictions. If the amount of money involved is over $1,000 or the victim is elderly or disabled, the offense is a felony. If not, it’s a first degree misdemeanor. You should hire an attorney.
Matthew Williams' answer It’s sound like they’re giving you a chance to take advantage of the Good Samaritan provision in Ohio’s drug law that says you and the person who called on your behalf won’t be charged if you go to treatment within 30 days. They would charge you with either drug abuse, or possession, or both. Your PRC officer may not care whether or not you’re charged.
