    In Ohio lawyers can be certified as criminal defense specialists. The organization that certifies criminal defense specialists for the Ohio Supreme Court is the National Board of Trial Advocacy. You can see which attorneys are listed as Board Certified Criminal Defense Specialists in Ohio by going to their website at http://www.nblsc.us/# They also explain the screening process for criminal defense lawyers, etc. In Ohio, many criminal defense lawyers are also members of the Ohio Association...

  2. What are the consequences of filing a police report in ohio, with no prior criminal record

    Answered over 5 years ago.

    It depends on the facts. Most charges of that sort are filed under the Falsification statute, and constitute a First Degree Misdemeanor, which carries a maximum fine of $1000 and 6 months in jail. The statute contains various provisions, some of which could make the charge a felony. Google Ohio Revised Code section 2921.13 if you want to read it and see where your facts fit in. If the case is a First Degree Misdemeanor, and the facts are not aggravated, then you may not be looking at any jail...

    No, you cannot successfully sue this person. What's worse, you would probably be liable for filing a frivolous lawsuit. So the answer would be: Less than zero! Dan J. Weisenburger Attorney at Law

  4. Can a criminal sentence be modified if already sentenced and serving time in jail

    Answered over 5 years ago.

    Yes it can. What you need is a Motion to Modify Sentence. Typically it asks the judge to consider modifying the sentence (in a particular manner), setting forth the reasons that the judge should do so. This is something you really should have an attorney handle. Dan J. weisenburger Attorney at Law www.OhioCrimeLawyer.com

    Simply state "I am not answering any questions" if the police continue to ask you questions other than who you are and where you live. You should not take any portable breath tests (at the scene) or attempt the field sobriety tests. Further, police officers are NOT permitted to give you legal advice, especially when that advice is false! Dan J. Weisenburger Attorney at Law

    Do not talk to anyone about the facts of this case...especially online. The best thing you can do is to contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer who handles cases in the court where you would be charged. He/she can properly advise you and dramatically decrease the chances of incarceration. Dan J. Weisenburger Attorney at Law www.OhioCrimeLawyer.com

  7. Is there any way to beat a noise in a motor vehicle ticket by pleading not guilty?

    Answered about 5 years ago.

    A plea of No Contest is the same as pleading guilty. The only differences are that (1) If the citation fails to allege an offense, the NC plea will result in a dismissal, and (2) A NC plea gives you protection from a civil suit for damages to persons or property. Essentially, if you plead No Contest, the judge will find you guilty and you can argue what the PENALTY should be. If you plead Guilty or No Contest and then argue that you AREN'T guilty, then that may cause a problem with the judge....

  8. Falsification

    1 lawyer answer

    Under Ohio law, Falsification is normally a First Degree Misdemeanor, carrying a maximium penalty of 6 months in jail and a $1000 fine, although it can be a felony in rare instances. Check out Ohio Revised Code section 2921.13 (too large to copy here) to see the definitions and penalty levels for yourself. In most cases, judges do not impose jail time. Dan J.

  10. My son is in jail for violating probation for writing bad checks, can he get his jail time reduced

    Answered over 5 years ago.

    1. Danny James Weisenburger
    1 lawyer answer

    Your only hope is to file a motion attempting to convince the sentencing judge to let him out early. Since the judge obviously already gave your son a chance to prove himself, and he failed, it will not be easy to convince the judge to give him a second chance. Many judges nowadays will not even consider such a motion until the defendant has served a good portion of their sentence. It is also a good idea to find a lawyer who is familiar with that court system and judge. That way you could...
