By definition, criminal conduct involves acts and omissions that are outside the scope of behavior acceptable by society. The law is designed to punish such acts with consequences of similar weight. However, it is also designed to protect victims of possibly overzealous law enforcement practices and false allegations.
That said, there are several different transgressions in Ohio that law enforcement may deem “criminal.” Some are obvious, and some, not so much. Less obvious offenses may fall into the “misdemeanor” category, while more obvious offenses, such as assault and homicide, may fall into the “felony” category. At The VanNoy Firm, our Dayton criminal defense lawyers defend clients against both misdemeanors and felonies. Some types of cases we have taken on and for which we have helped achieve a successful outcome are as follows:
Whatever the reason for your arrest, our criminal defense team is prepared to help you fight the charges and uphold your rights.
As mentioned above, the consequences of a criminal conviction can follow you around for the rest of your life. However, the penalties of a conviction are almost immediate and may include the following:
Even if you are lucky enough to get off with nothing more than license suspension and revocation, court costs, and a mandatory substance abuse treatment program, you would still have to live with the long-term consequences of a conviction, such as tarnished reputation, damaged relationships, job loss and subsequent difficulty finding gainful employment, and mounting debt. If you have children with a person to whom you are not married, you may have difficulty gaining custodial rights or, depending on the nature of your crime, visitation rights.
