  1. If you have no prior criminal convictions, Ohio law statutorily presumes you will be placed on probation from one to five years. However, the potential prison sentence is anywhere between six to eighteen months. The Court may suspend the imposition of prison and place you on probation, but could impose a prison sentence later if you violate your probation.

    You should either retain a lawyer or, if you qualify, ask the Court to appoint counsel for you.
