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... Read 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... Read more »
Is that mayor's court charge still active
answered on Feb 1, 2023
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... Read 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,... Read more »

Your son should hire a local defense attorney and follow his or her advice. The statute of limitations on a felony charge is 6 years so while 2 seems like a long time, it is far from being precluded.
The bar is in my neighborhood and I am sick of the crime it brings.
answered on Oct 19, 2022
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.
While you certainly... Read more »
I got the drone back, said he may have to charge me because his crew may charge him, I may not be properly licensed but was not near any controlled air space.
answered on Sep 10, 2022
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... Read 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.

If you don't attend the hearing, the judge will conclude you don't care, and so your mother will likely get custody.

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.

YES. UNLESS THERE IS SOME OTHER TYPE OF DETAINER ON YOU LIKE A PROBATION VIOLATION HOLD OR PAROLE VIOLATION HOLD.

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... Read more »

Based on the limited facts, any admiralty/maritime issues involved were not clear.
and how long would he have
answered on Aug 28, 2019
He would probably go to prison. How long depends on how it’s charged, what evidence there is, and who the judge is.

Well, eventually they will put him in prison. After all what’s there really to expect?
answered on Jan 4, 2019
You need to hire an attorney. You should not be discussing this in an online forum.
answered on Oct 11, 2018
Not exactly. If you plead not guilty in Mayor's Court, your case gets transferred to Municipal Court, which may seem like getting charged twice. You may owe court costs in both courts which is getting charged (money charged not traffic or criminally charged) twice.
My Father said that he doesn't have to stop at a stop sign in a school parking lot because it is private property, and so I wanted to see if he was correct.
answered on Feb 14, 2018
School is quasi-public in Ohio. School board is a quasi-governmental body, a bit public, a bit private. A cop could give a ticket, and then your dad could try fighting it in court. Maybe he wins. Or maybe the cop sees him roll on the school lot, and waits to stop him at the next stop sign on a... Read more »

No, you can't contact her. That would violate the order. If you do that, you could put her in trouble. Do you want to do that to her? Move on, and have no contact with her.

New laws do not change already imposed prison terms, though they may change eligibility for release. A lawyer needs to look at all of it with specifics.
answered on Nov 2, 2017
The court typically gives tenant 7 to 10 days to vacate, but it can be quicker. So find a new place as soon as you can. Talk to your landlord to find out. If you need help, talk to local housing agencies or shelters.
