Seville Criminal Defense Attorney

Someone who is accused of a crime in Seville, Ohio, needs a Seville criminal defense attorney in Medina County, who is available to provide defense for a variety of criminal cases, from traffic to misdemeanors and felonies.

If the crime is alleged to have been committed in Seville, Ohio, misdemeanor offenses will be handled by the Wadsworth Municipal Court, starting with the arraignment and bond hearing. Pre-trials are not set by the court, but can be privately arranged between the criminal defense attorney and the prosecutor.  If the accused pleads guilty or no-contest, or is found guilty at trial, the court will order a pre-sentence investigation (PSI) prior to sentencing, unless it is a minor offense such as a minor misdemeanor.

If the accused is under 18, the case will be heard in the Medina County Juvenile Court, beginning with the arraignment or shelter care hearing.  Several weeks later, a pretrial is held with the court.  Witnesses testify at the adjudicatory hearing.  If the accused admits to the offense or is found delinquent at the adjudicatory hearing, the accused’s punishment is determined by the court at the dispositional hearing.

If the case is labeled as an F-1 through 5, it is a felony, which can start in the Wadsworth Municipal Court, but would wind up in the Medina 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, which is usually set in the week following the pretrial.  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.
