Penalties for Criminal Convictions in Ohio

Ohio takes criminal violations very seriously, and you can face serious potential penalties if you are convicted of a crime. This is why we always fight to get charges dropped or dismissed whenever possible. When not possible, we fight for the most lenient penalties available in your circumstances. 

Some possible penalties for convictions in Ohio that you want to avoid include:

  • Imprisonment
  • Fines up to $20,000
  • Probation
  • Community service
  • Loss of a driver’s license
  • Substance abuse treatment

In addition, a criminal conviction can affect your life outside of court-ordered sentences. You might lose your job or have difficulty getting hired due to your criminal record. You might lose a professional license or educational opportunities. Criminal convictions can cause problems with child custody, finding housing, immigration, and much more. 

You need to have the best possible defense to avoid these severe penalties. 

Defending Against Your Charges

There are often various defenses available in criminal cases, and you should never simply plead guilty without consulting with an attorney. If you do, you may face criminal and collateral consequences that you may have avoided by challenging the case against you or taking a plea bargain negotiated by a lawyer. In some cases, plea bargains may even allow you jail time, fines, or even a conviction altogether. 

Some of the most common defenses that lawyers raise in criminal defense cases include:

  • Challenging the admissibility of evidence
  • Arguing that the accused was somewhere else at the time the crime was committed
  • Self-defense or defense of others
  • Attempting to discredit the state’s evidence

Only a highly-trained attorney can evaluate the case against you and determine if these or any other defenses apply. As a result, you should be certain to discuss your options with a lawyer before making any decisions about how to proceed.
