He urinated in bushes, in the early afternoon on a Sunday. No facilities were open.
You did not say what he was charged with but I would assume it is public indecency. Depending on where this happened it could be anywhere from a 1st to 4th degree misdemeanor. Under the Ohio Revised Code it would be a 4th degree misdemeanor but some suburbs may have a local ordinance that raises the level of the charge. As to what would happen hopefully a plea agreement could be negotiated. It is likely at most there would be a fine and no jail time unles there are prior violations or other facts. The fact that it is an RTA station may affect the result especally if there were others there who witnesses the event.
the above response is general information and is not intended to establish an attorney client relationship. Is always best to consult with counsel of your choosing befroe making any legal decision.
The short answer is likely no. It is likely he will be charged with a fourth degree misdemeanor disorderly conduct as well as a fourth degree misdemeanor public indecency as well as possible additional charges of higher degrees. If this was in Cleveland he will have to appear for arraignment at the Cleveland Municipal Court and then likely pretrial conferences before a plea agreement can be reached. If no agreement can be reached he will proceed with trial. Without knowing exactly what he is being charged with I could not tell you the possible penalty. Of course there is much more detail to the complete answer than can be posted here and it is good practice to consult with and hire an attorney to represent your son in this matter.
