Criminal Law

Displaying Matter Harmful to Juveniles charges occur when a person who has custody, control, or supervision of a commercial establishment, with knowledge of the character or content of the material involved, displays at the establishment any material that is harmful to juveniles and that is open to view by juveniles as part of the invited general public.

This is a first degree misdemeanor and, as such, the penalty is up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

The potential major problem with this charge is each day is considered to be one count so if the matter is displayed for a month you will be charged with 30 counts.

What Is Mandatory Vehicle Forfeiture In The Dayton, Ohio Area?

Certain crimes that involve a vehicle in Ohio require the vehicle to be forfeited to the State.

Other times, if a vehicle is used to assist in committing a crime, the vehicle may be forfeited to the State.

The State will have to file for forfeiture and have a hearing to argue why the vehicle should be forfeited.

We have helped many of our clients get their vehicle back and have successfully argued against forfeiture.

Carrying a Concealed Weapon can be either a felony or a misdemeanor depending on the circumstances.

The type of weapon concealed, whether it is loaded or not, and your criminal record are some of the factors that determine whether carrying a concealed weapon will be a felony.

For example, if the concealed weapon is a handgun that is not loaded, you will be charged with a first degree misdemeanor.

However, if it is loaded or the ammunition is close by, then it will be a fourth degree felony.

If you conceal a handgun that is not loaded but your criminal record includes an offense of violence in the past or you have a prior conviction for carrying a concealed weapon, then the charge will be a felony.

Any crime that involves a weapon is a charge Judges do not like so it is important to have a qualified attorney represent you.

When you enter a guilty plea you are completely admitting that you are guilty of the offense, and the plea can be used against you in later proceedings. When you enter a no contest plea, you are admitting the facts alleged by the state but are NOT admitting guilt, and therefore the plea cannot be used against you in later proceedings.

However, guilty and no contest pleas both result in convictions and are the same for sentencing purposes.
