A bind over is where a defendant has been charged with a felony. The case begins in the municipal court or lower court and is ‘bound over’ to the CPC or Common Pleas Court. Remember that municipal courts can only hear misdemeanors not felonies. Felonies are in the jurisdiction of the Common...View More

Issued a warrant for my arrest even though I am still testing positive today and I've been calling all morning to try and contact someone to alert. But they returned my call and said they can't reschedule it again due to covid even though I'm still testing positive
Were you able to show/send proof from the test that you are positive? I can’t believe that with proof sent to the court that they would put themselves and others in jeopardy. I would hire a lawyer and give them the proof that you actually did have covid and have the lawyer draft a legal motion...View More
Had CS hearing for contempt- couldnt make it. Warrant issued. Paid to get recalled, was issued new hearing (employee came out, handed me new date paper & said “be there”). Again, date conflicting. I asked how to reschedule. She refused to go back (hearing was done w/ me in the lobby) to ask... View More
The employees cannot give legal advice. There are literally signs all over every court stating this. YOU are responsible for either hiring an attorney or learning the rules through independent research. Appear before the court ASAP and make your explanation. Better yet, invest in actually...View More
In Ohio, you can legally create and operate a motorized bicycle or moped if it meets certain requirements. To be street legal, the motor should have a piston displacement of 50cc or less, and the vehicle's maximum speed shouldn't exceed 20 mph on a flat surface. If you're 14 or 15,...View More
In Ohio, running a business training and boarding dogs may require permits or licenses, depending on local regulations and zoning laws. It's essential for your neighbor to check with the city or county authorities to determine the specific requirements for operating a dog training and boarding...View More
It sounds like there's more confusion than legal issues here. Call the tax department and get an explanation of what's going on. Go to the source and get good information that your rights are being impinged before contacting an expensive attorney for help
Title put into my name but it was only notorized. Well June 17th 2021 the Morrow County Sheriff's Office came to my residence and told me that my buddy's babys mom got power of attorney since he was arrested and she reported the truck as stolen knowing full well that I paid that truck off...

No, you cannot sue the sheriff’s department because it has immunity.
Yes, you can sue your friend’s mother for falsely reporting the truck stolen. She could plead a failure to mitigate your damages to limit any recovery to two weeks’ cost for a rental car to take you to work....View More
With the passing of Ohio's Constitutional Carry law, as of July 13, 2022 Ohio citizens without a CCW permit can legally carry a loaded firearm on their person while in their vehicle, but not in a school zone. If you live near or drive through a school zone on a public road (where you must slow... View More
Ohio law prohibits carrying a firearm in a school safety zone, which includes the area within 1,000 feet of the school grounds. This applies to both open and concealed carry, regardless of whether you have a CCW permit or not.
Therefore, if you are driving through a school safety zone, you...View More
Felonies do not override lesser charges. There are usually two judges, common pleas and municipal, with two separate sentences for what you were found guilty. Sentences can be run concurrent or consecutive depending on the judge and facts. If the cases are related you have a shot of getting the...View More
They issued a warrant but told him over the phone he just needs to come to the court to receive the indictment and set a court date and he won't be arrested at that time, is this true or a trick? Also, what should he do concerning going forward with the charge/indictment? The case was closed,... View More
In some limited cases, you can bring a claim for nuisance against the bar and seek to enjoin it from operating. This is typically done by the municipality, sometimes by a community development clinic or other non-profit, and very infrequently done by private individuals.
An Ohio attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Until you're able to discuss with a local attorney, nationwide such a situation would usually be on the drone operator. If the crew is regularly up there to check equipment or perform maintenance, they could...View More
It’s not automatic, especially since the statute authorizes the judges to change the concurrent supervision rules more or less as they see fit. I would start with a conversation with the two probation officers before going to the court.
They could be charged with intimidating a witness. It’s likely the defendant would get charged as well. Police and prosecutors will assume he is orchestrating this. Visits and calls should be documented to show that isn’t the case if it isn’t.
Sure. Take what is "yours." And if you take something that is not "yours," or she claims is not "yours," she could file a police report for theft. Not a good way to start out being an adult when you turn 18. Can you prove those items are "yours." Do you...View More
