The blurred line between the juvenile and adult justice systems

The mission of the U.S. judicial system is to faithfully enforce the law and protect its citizens. Since the 1800s, the U.S. has had two separate judicial systems: one for adults and one for juveniles. Back then, people under the age of eighteen who allegedly committed a crime received more leniency in juvenile court. Over the passing generations, however, society has called for tougher sentencing, even for the once protected class of youth.

Boating in Ohio: Restrictions on alcohol and drug use

Operating any vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs is illegal in Ohio. No one is allowed to operate or control a vehicle, water skis or other devices if they are on drugs or under the influence of alcohol. If a person is impaired when driving any kind of vehicle, he or she could be putting him or herself and others in danger.

Overdose leads to arrest of 32-year-old man

When someone dies as a result of someone else's actions, the person who caused the death is normally held accountable. In the past, drug-related deaths weren't always treated that way, but they are today. If you give someone drugs, you could be held accountable if that person dies or suffers injuries as a result.

Medical marijuana can still result in charges

Ohio does allow for medical marijuana to be used for patients in need. There are things to know, though, especially if you're being accused of a drug crime related to marijuana use. In fall 2018, medical marijuana will be available for the first time ever in Ohio. It will only be allowed to be sold by approved retailers starting in September. Each sale is taxed.

Trial set for Akron board member accused of possessing marijuana

Summit County sues drugmakers, distributors for opioid crisis

When you think of someone who commits drug crimes, the last thing that likely comes to mind is the drug producer itself. Pharmaceutical companies are coming under fire, though, because it's being alleged that they knew that the drugs they were selling were addictive and yet continued to push them to doctors.

Criminal conspiracies: What you need to know

If you're accused of conspiracy, it's vital that you understand exactly what that means. By definition, a criminal conspiracy is when at least two people commit a crime together. It doesn't matter what crime it is. At that point, some action must be taken to actually commit the crime for it to be considered a conspiracy.
