Sounds like you should take the Bar Exam. You can be a handyman without a contractor's license so long as you do not charge more than $600.00 for work you do on a property during a 12 month period. Too many "handymen" were stitching together jobs of $600 or less into substantial...Read more »
I feel there was no reasonable cause for an arrest to be made. The statements were false and I did not bother anyone in the building. The charges were dissmised in the interest of Justice. I am wondering if I have a potential case to sue for damages, economic losses, and non economic losses?
There is a time and a place to bring witnesses. The prosecutor does not have a say in it. Witnesses are normally not called unless a contested motion or trial is scheduled.

Here is the thing, prescription drugs can make you illegale to drive if you ate under the influence. Whether or not he had probable cause to believe you have controlled substances is certainly arguable. If you appeared impaired and admitted to taking medications one could certainly argue he had...Read more »

They don't have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed an infraction or something to pull you over. But there has to be a reason that they can explain and have some testimony towards the reason(s). For example, he could be saying I saw that this vehicle was traveling over the...Read more »

Something tells me that you don't have the facts straight. First, a Kohls investigator does not work for the government, so a statement to a private individual is not a statement to the government. Next, your facts indicate that the Court of Appeals considered your arguments about the false...Read more »

We really can’t offer the kind of advice you need, since we don’t have access to any evidence or investigation. I suggest that either you push your PD to put forth a defense or a fair negotiation, or retain a private attorney. Good luck.
You should look to get your record sealed. Technically expunging a record does not exist in Ohio, but you could likely seal it. The problem you have is the crime is inherently violent, and you likely will not qualify for a firearms purchase until the record is sealed. You can speak with an...Read more »
