Defenses to Ohio drug charges

The basic premise of our criminal justice system allows anyone accused of a crime the presumption of innocence, which means that it is necessary for the state of Ohio to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the individual facing criminal charges is guilty. Moreover, if you are accused of a crime such as the possession, sale or trafficking of drugs, you have the right to refute those charges and present a defense to them in court. This article will focus on some of the defenses to drug charges.

Will Ohio corrections officer need a criminal defense attorney?

Corrections officers throughout the country spend a great deal of time in close proximity to inmates. In some cases, officers come into contact with them after they are released. In the case of one Ohio man, alleged contact with a former female inmate could require him to hire a criminal defense counsel.

Ohio doctor accused of numerous felonies about to go to trial

Ohio prosecutors and an accused doctor's criminal defense team are about to empanel a jury to decide whether the doctor is guilty of the crimes with which he is charged. He is accused of several felonies and misdemeanors, including rape and sexual imposition. Last year, the State Medical Board suspended his license to practice medicine due to the pending charges.

Trial date in lawmaker's theft and securities fraud case set

When more than one person is accused of the same crime, the possibility of at least one of the people involved providing information to prosecutors in exchange for a plea bargain exists. This often leaves the other party or parties at a disadvantage at trial. An Ohio lawmaker appears to be facing this dilemma in the theft and securities fraud case filed against him.

Police detective found in possession of prescription narcotics

A police detective possessing a prescription narcotic is not necessarily surprising or illegal in and of itself. What makes this particular detective's alleged possession of prescription narcotics illegal is that they are believed to be from the evidence room of the department in Ohio where he was employed for nearly seven years. In March of this year, he resigned his position and is believed to be preparing to plead guilty to charges in connection with the reported drug thefts.
