Rittman Criminal Defense Attorney

Someone who is accused of a crime in Rittman, Ohio, needs a Rittman criminal defense attorney, who is available to provide defense for a variety of criminal cases, such as trafficking in drugs, automobile theft, assault, and DUIs.

If the crime is alleged to have been committed in Rittman, Ohio, misdemeanor offenses will be handled by the Wayne County Municipal Court, starting with the arraignment and bond hearing. Pre-trials are set by the court.  If the accused pleads guilty or no-contest, or is found guilty at trial, the court will proceed to sentencing.

If the accused is under 18, the case will be heard in the Wayne County Juvenile Court, beginning with the arraignment or shelter care hearing.  Several weeks later, a pretrial is held with the court.  The adjudicatory hearing is the trial.  The dispositional hearing is where the sentence is imposed.

Felony cases can start in the Wayne County Municipal Court, but would wind up in the Wayne County Court of Common Pleas for the remainder of the proceedings.  The prosecutor and the criminal defense lawyer discuss and attempt to resolve the matter at the pre-trial.  If an agreement cannot be reached, the matter then may proceed to a jury trial.  If the accused pleads guilty or no contest or is found guilty at trial, the court usually orders a pre-sentence investigation (PSI), and proceeds to sentencing on a later date.
