Brunswick, OH asked in Criminal Law, Traffic Tickets, Domestic Violence and Municipal Law for Ohio

Q: What kind of charges and or jail time and fees is he looking at?

My boyfriend/father of my child was pulled over earlier by a state trooper here in Ohio. He is on probation until August of this year for Domestic violence and unlawful restraint. He got a ticket for no seatbelt and driving under suspension. He also does not have car insurance which they will find out in court on the 12th of this month. It is also the 3rd or 4th traffic violation in the past 12 months.

A: HE IS LOOKING AT BEING CHARGED WITH DUS. DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF DUS HE IS CHARGED WITH, SOME ARE MISDEMEANORS OF THE FIRST DEGREE AND CARRY A POTENTIAL PENALTY OF UP TO A $1,000.00 FINE AND UP TO 180 DAYS JAIL. HOWEVER, SOME ARE UNCLASSIFIED MISDEMEANORS, AND THEY CARRY UP TO A $1,000.00 FINE, NO JAIL, BUT A POTENTIAL OF 0-500 HOURS OF COMMUNITY SERVICE.

AS FOR THE SEATBELTY, THEY ARE USUALLY MINOR MISDEMEANORS AND CARRY ONLY A FINE.

I DO NOT DISCUSS FEES OVER THE INTERNET. HOWEVER YOU CAN CONTACT MY OFFICE AT 216-642-0424 TO DISCUSS FEES.

BEST WISHES,
