In Ohio your bail should be carried over from the prelim.. The Key is make sure the Common Pleas Court has your contact information. If they choose to serve you by summons, be sure to appear. Also, if you hire an attorney, you can have them contact the prosecutor and work things out early through a Bill of Information.
You have to have a full review of the file. Personally, I think the attorney who was working for your friend crossed the line based on your representation of the facts.
As to the Prosecutor and Attorney having a good relationship. That is not so bad. I like to think that I get along very well with the prosecutors in that county and actually I think that could help. But as to the other relationship. WOW.
If you would like a consult, I would be willing to listen.
You could file a Motion to Show Cause as to why he is not in contempt of the previous court order then reduce it to judgment. The court would give him probably thirty days to pay off the amout owed. If he did not pay he may go to jail.
In addition, depending on how your dissolution paper work reads you, may be able to collect directly from him through a garnishment of his bank account. However I would have to read your paper work prior to telling you this was the correct tactic to pursue.
I agree with Mr. Kirner, an attorney will assist in the recall of the warrant. Also you need to always get ahead of these matters. There may be diversion programs that are available that would keep your sons record clean.
I hope you respond to this as I would be interested in what happened at your conference. A f2 carries with it the presumption of prison time. The f3 in your case should have a neutral presumption and the f4 carries with it the presumption against prison. This being said your record will and the fact of the case all drive the decision of the Court.
Much of what happened will depend on circumstance. When the officers entered the home they have the right to do a sweep to ensure their safety. They also may search the individual, again for their safety. If illegal items are in plain view like being on a table top or counter the officers have the right to seize them. But if they started rummaging through drawers and desks or moving furniture then there may be an issue. My advice is to hire an attorney and have them look at this case...
It depends on the charge and how her sentencing entry reads. Ohio has something called post release control. Depending on the charge, post release control can be mandatory or optional and up to the discretion of the Ohio Parole Authority. If I were you, I would have an attorney review the sentencing entry to determine what the possible outcomes may be when your daughter is released.
Your friend should seek an attorney and speak to no other person regarding this matter. In the State of Ohio a 14 year old can not consent to have sex and at a minimum this sounds like unlawful sex with a minor, a felony of the fourth degree. These case always have a way of making it to the prosecutors office because somebody tells someone else and it then slips to an adult who alerts the authorities.
Good Luck and if your friend is in North West Ohio please feel free to contact me.
