Police search for man accused of armed robbery and assault

People who are confronted with accusations of robbery, violence and other allegations in Cleveland must be fully aware of their rights to lodge a defense. This is true regardless of the charges. In fact, those who have been arrested or being sought for violent crimes should be exceedingly cognizant of the essential nature of planning a strong defense because of the harshness of the penalties in the event of a conviction. There can be a long prison sentence, significant fines and other punishments that can affect a person's life for a long time, if not forever.

How is possession of drug paraphernalia determined?

Ohioans who are arrested for drug offenses do not necessarily have to have the actual drug on them to face charges. They can also face legal issues because of the possession of drug paraphernalia. Many of the items that are used in conjunction with drugs are of the basic household variety for which there is a perfectly rational explanation for having them. Understanding how law enforcement and the courts can determine whether an item is classified as drug paraphernalia can be the key to a case and lodging a successful defense when placed under arrest.

Man charged with drunk driving after hit-and-run of bicyclists

Being arrested and charged with any drunk driving charges in Cleveland can lead to significant penalties. This is true even if the driver was not in an accident and found himself or herself confronted with other allegations along with drunk driving. If there is a crash, people might be hurt. It is possible that the driver will try to flee the scene. These acts can raise the charges from a DUI offense to much more. Regardless, whether it is a DUI stop and arrest or something worse, it is essential to have legal assistance to plan for a defense.
