Can I have my white collar crime records expunged?

In the state of Ohio, it is possible to have certain criminal records and/or convictions sealed. This is particularly valuable for those who wish to hide these records from background checks performed by potential employers or landlords. Further, when a person's record is legally sealed, he or she no longer needs to admit to having a record on job applications.

Does Ohio have statutes of limitations for criminal activity?

When the authorities have reason to believe someone has committed a crime, they are not always able to apprehend them immediately. In fact, it is not altogether unheard of for months or even years to pass by before the police can make an arrest. There are certain criminal activities that are punishable indefinitely, but there are others with an expiration date or a statute of limitations. After this length of time has passed, the alleged offender can no longer be charged with a crime.

Choosing the right attorney for the defense of felony charges

Being charged and convicted of a felony could change your life forever while also affecting the lives of your loved ones. When you need a criminal defense attorney in the Cleveland area, you might become overwhelmed by the large array of law firms from which to choose. You need an attorney fast, but instead of choosing the first lawyer you come across, it may benefit you to consider a few important factors before making a decision.

Switching to synthetic drugs may not keep you safe from arrest

Synthetic forms of recreational drugs have existed for years, leaving Ohio and other states struggling to find legal ways to address their use. The problem with enforcing use and possession of synthetic drugs is that manufacturers routinely change their recipes. As soon as one ingredient becomes illegal, these manufacturers simply find a substitute. However, the government has stepped up its efforts in recent years, making an arrest and possible conviction more viable than ever for drug users.
