Freedoms lost by convicted felons in Ohio

Being convicted of a felony in Ohio brings with it a lot of consequences. For starters, the convicted felon will be sentenced to prison. Depending on the crime committed, the felon could be facing anywhere from one year to life in prison. The felon might also face thousands of dollars in fines and penalties.

DNA collection of criminal defendants in Ohio under scrutiny

Ohio maintains a database of DNA profiles. They are designed to aid police investigators as they track down criminals involved in cold cases and new cases alike. By law, everyone arrested on a felony charge is required to submit genetic material that can then be added to the system.

What do the courts consider before sentencing?

Felonies in Ohio are penalized in accordance with the felony sentencing guidelines within the state. The state published documents that state that the point of penalizing those who have committed crimes is to make sure the public is protected against future crimes. The courts aim to use the minimum number of sanctions against a person to accomplish the desired result without imposing unnecessary burdens on local or state resources.
