    The length of time is not the issue. The police warning is not a court order or a criminal charge. Police advise persons wishing to file telephone harassment complaints that the person they want to leave them alone must be informed not to call. First, the complaining party must tell the person not to call. Second, the police will call and warn the person not to call. If the calls continue, a telephone harassment charge may be filed. The warning is only a stepping stone preceding a...

    A first offense M-1 theft conviction involving $83.00 seems likely to be headed for probation. You may even have a defense. You should be represented by a criminal defense attorney. Your attorney can recommend what courses of action you should consider. First time offenders for this type of case, for example, may be eligible for a diversion program. A diversion program requires you to admit your guilt to the original charge, but, your plea will not be accepted by your judge. You will enter a...

    Getting a law degree may be possible, but you will still be confronted regarding your past before being admitted to the bar. Admission may be possible, as well. Consider the following. You must complete a written character and fitness application for admission to the bar in the State of Ohio. You will then be interviewed in person. Crimes of moral turpitude may disqualify you. That said, do not conceal your criminal background. Disclose any details on your written application and be prepared...

    If a court order exists regarding visitation the father needs to file a contempt action. If no visitation order exists, the child’s father needs to seek an order for visitation. Such orders are normally granted in the County Domestic Relations Court where the child resides. Child support and visitation are separate matters. When a party fails to honor a visitation order through denying visitation or alienating affection, a contempt action is appropriate. This answer is offered for...

    Probation officers (P.O.s) routinely check, in the course of their service, for arrests and convictions within and outside the county of jurisdiction. Preemptive disclosure is up to you. Sometimes P.O.s will wait to see the outcome of the new charge before violating you. Depends. Probation violations may not result in the imposition of jail time for the new charge. No false hope here. Each case has its own facts. If you see your P.O. and do not disclose your new arrest during your scheduled...
