I believe you have done well by being clean, paying your fines and obtaining a job. But, it is concerning that this is a second violation. I am not sure you how you messed up, but the judge can: continue/extend your probation; terminate probation; or send you to jail. Since this is a second... Read more »

If you are not charged, they should not keep your money. You may have to file a replevin (return of property) action to get the money back. However, it is possible that they are still contemplating charges. So,I would gather whatever information you have, bank statements and the like, to show... Read more »

You are not convicted of this offense until you are sentenced. So, what happens in an Intervention In lieu case, in most courts, is that you plead to the offense. You are set for sentencing at a later date. Your case is then stayed until you complete whatever treatment or programs are required of... Read more »

It seems threatening. But that it to be determined by police or prosecutor. Due to the serious nature of this communication, I would report it to the police. Even if they decide not to pursue it, you will have something on file. Plus, I would print/document/copy the threats. You may be able to... Read more »
Standing requires an injured party as complaintant so if the state of ohio filed criminal charges in common pleas if there is no injured party would the state lack standing ???
answered on Jan 12, 2023
If this is a criminal case, and the crime occurred within the State of Ohio, then venue is appropriate. The fact that there is no injured party does not make a lack of standing. For example, traffic tickets, speeding and the like, there is no injured party. But, there is a violation of the... Read more »
My 13 yr old son was physically attacked by a Walmart employee, when the cop got there he said he sees what happened but it was not enough to prove the attackers maliciousness and advised me just to file a claim with Walmart. I wanted the employee charged because my son is a minor, he's... Read more »

Maliciousness is not an element of an Assault case. All that is necessary is that you prove that a person knowingly caused or attempted to cause physical harm to another without the other person's consent. So, malice is not an element.
I hope that answers your questions. Without... Read more »
I understand there's false positives sometimes. Unless it's a warning or fail is this something I need to worry about ?
answered on Apr 7, 2023
I am not sure of the mechanics of a inter-lock system. However, I would not take anything for granted. I would contact the inter-lock company and have your unit checked, and document it some way. Last thing you need is to be violated for a false positive.
I wish you the best.
answered on Mar 24, 2023
The charge of Felonious Assault is not based upon the amount of individuals assaulting the person. It is based upon the severity of the injury.
I hope that answers your question.

You Could. The Judge may not like you representing yourself pro se. I think it is risky considering all your WONDERFUL accomplishments. What happens if you make a mistake because you don't know the law, and that causes you to suffer a setback? Plus, I want you to consider the following,... Read more »

answered on Mar 27, 2022
This is not an easy question to answer. Presenting evidence to court is something that you learn in law school and through the practice of law. There are different types of evidence and different ways to present it. May I suggest, for a starting point, that you review the Ohio Rules of Evidence.... Read more »
Would the cops charge him or would I have to charge him? They have evidence I wasn’t the only person in the car and in the accident report I am the passenger. He also called his mom and said he x up
answered on Feb 9, 2022
The Police should charge him if they catch him. It would not hurt for you to file a police report too. But if the police were on scene and chasing him, they will charge him.
Hope you are well.
the state is willing to run their time concurrent to the feds. how do we make sure he does his time in the feds
answered on Jan 29, 2022
The prisons will work this matter out. But it’s most likely he will do his federal time first in any state time will run concurrent with that. If he has additional state time after his federal time then he will go to state prison if not he will be straight released from federal prison.
The other parties insurance company is only paying 11,000 dollars. I still owe 14000 on the car and am left with a 3000$ bill and no vehicle. Do I have any options or am I stuck with this?
answered on Jan 28, 2022
You can always sue the other party as long as you do not sign a release. I would also contact your insurance company and notify them of the accident. Furthermore, I don't know if you bought GAP insurance when you bought your car. If you did, then it would cover the difference. If you are... Read more »
