3 charged with mail and wire fraud in alleged student loan scam

Around a decade ago, an Ohio couple opened Carnegie Career College that purported to be a private school offering certain associates degrees and certificates. Financial aid was also available in the form of student loans. The alleged theft of over $2 million in student aid led to mail and wire fraud charges against the college's co-founders and one other person.

Ohio possession of prescription narcotics conviction overturned

When a traffic stop is initiated in Ohio or anywhere else in the country, a search of the driver's vehicle is not automatic. Law enforcement officials must follow certain rules since protection from unlawful searches and seizures is a right guaranteed in the United States Constitution. If it is discovered that a search was not executed properly, any items discovered during that search may not be admissible in court. A District Court of Appeals in Ohio recently reiterated this constitutional protection by overturning a possession of prescription narcotics conviction.

Ohio drug charges: New law focuses on hidden compartments

A new Ohio law related to the drug and gun trade was recently used for the first time since it was passed last year. A driver was pulled over for following too closely and speeding. By the time the traffic stop was over, the man was arrested. Authorities wanted to arrest him on drug charges, but the only charge they could use was the fact that a hidden compartment was allegedly in the vehicle he was driving, which is illegal under this new law.
