Medina County Felony Trial Attorney

A Medina County Felony Trial Attorney is an aggressive advocate who fights for the rights of people who are accused of major crimes.  This type of attorney has taken several cases to trial and has multiple victories as a result.  These victories are not just pretrial victories, but involve putting it all on the line, picking a jury and being willing to allow that jury to decide the fate of the accused.  This type of attorney is the only type of attorney that can achieve a real victory in some cases.  Sometimes, the prosecutor does not offer a deal, but simply states that the accused can plead to the indictment and take their chances in front of the judge while the prosecutor asks for a lengthy sentence.  However, an experienced criminal trial attorney can muster the respect needed to get some kind of deal, even in the toughest situations. Only the experienced felony trial attorney can potentially get some of the charges eliminated by the very real threat of taking the matter to trial, not to win, but to simply eliminate the offenses that the prosecutor cannot prove.  Only the experienced felony trial attorney can convince the prosecutor that the State of Ohio could potentially lose so much credibility in losing on some counts, that the remainder of the counts could be in jeopardy at trial.  Finally, the felony trial attorney can simply take the case to trial.

Orrville Criminal Defense Attorney

Someone who is accused of a crime in Orrville needs an Orrville criminal defense attorney, who is available to provide defense for a variety of criminal cases, such as disorderly conduct, OVI, domestic violence, forgery, breaking and entering, and felonious assault.  An experienced Wayne County criminal defense attorney investigates potential defenses and errors in the police investigation that can lead to a dismissal of the charges.  The value of finding such defenses or errors is immeasurable, giving the client the chance to avoid prison, jail, house arrest, fines and suspension of their driver’s license.  Errors in police investigation are usually challenged through a motion to suppress, which, if granted by the court, would prevent the State of Ohio from presenting evidence that was obtained from the police’s wrongful conduct.  Once this tainted evidence is removed from use at trial, the charges are often dismissed.  At the very least, eliminating the state’s evidence can make it difficult for the prosecutor to try the case.

What Factors Affect An Agreed Sentence?

I often hear my clients tell me that someone else got a certain sentence for a similar offense and whether they could also get the same sentence. My usual response is that no two cases and defendants are exactly alike and so the sentences would not necessarily be exactly alike.  There are a number of official sentencing guidelines that courts follow, especially those set forth in Ohio Revised Code 2929.11 and 2929.12 (R.C. 2929.11 and R.C. 2929.12).  This article is not going to focus on those factors, but rather, the factors in obtaining an agreed sentence.
