Ohio: How felonies and bail are handled in the state

If you're facing a felony, you may think your entire life is over. A felony is often seen as being something that results in long-term prison sentences with no real way out, but the truth is that felonies don't have to be an end to your life. Many factors are considered in each case, and the prosecution has to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you're guilty to get a conviction.

Felonies: The most serious class of offenses

A felony is the most serious class of offenses you can be charged with. It's absolutely vital that you work on a strong defense if you face a felony charge. Felonies have more serious penalties than misdemeanors, and you could face time in prison or face heavy fines. You may face both in some cases.

Is bail too expensive?

Bail is a common way to make sure that people accused of crimes will show up in court when it's time for a hearing. In essence, it is a security payment that grants an accused individual the ability to live a normal life until future court dates. Those who do not pay bail sometimes wait for trial in jail.

Assault charges can vary significantly

When you're in the midst of a physical altercation with someone, you're likely not thinking about what specific laws you may be violating. Whether you were defending yourself, taking on someone who made a pass at your girlfriend or have had enough as a guy at the bar is disparaging your beloved Cavs, you could find yourself facing an assault charge. Some assaults are misdemeanor crimes, while others are felonies.

Assisted suicide now a felony in Ohio

Many people consider the right to die a deeply personal decision that people should be allowed to make for themselves without the government's interference. However, when terminally-ill people become so sick and frail that they can't take their own lives to escape their misery, they often call on loved ones to help them end their suffering.

How can having a DUI impact my future?

A DUI is a serious charge to have. Many people in Ohio feel that the most serious things they have to worry about are losing their drivers licenses and spending some time locked up. They may also believe that after they have paid their fines, restitution and completed all court-ordered requirements, they no longer have anything to worry about. However, driving under the influence convictions have far-reaching consequences that can affect you for many years after the date you were convicted.
