Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: My step son was arrested in a town and county known for racist law enforcement. They're neighbors called in for a domestic. It was a shouting match. He was forced to plea out. On the second trip to court me and my wife, his mother, stopped to get mail at a residence he and his wife no-longer lived at for mail. The third trip he was arrested for violating the PTO. The arresting officer admitted to following and seeing him. Also added that he didn't know whether the victim was at home. He got railroaded. Is there anything you might think could or should be done? This conviction will follow him. Black males already have a shadow over them.
JA: What was the conviction for exactly? Have all appeals been exhausted?
Customer: No appeal has been filed. His conviction was a misdemeanor dv
JA: In what state did this occur?
Customer: Ohio
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I don't have all of the facts. I should give you his number. But he's asleep right now. Can I give you a better time to call him?

Simmons Esq., Expert

Hello! I'm attorney Simmons. I've been practicing law for over 11 years in multiple states. I need a moment to review your question and do some legal research for an answer and I'll be right back. Just so you know, JustAnswer provides general information website. We do not provide an attorney client relationship nor do we provide any sort of legal representation. If you're looking to retain an attorney, the best bet to retain an attorney is on a website called www.avvo.com. You'll find local representation, most of which will give a free consultation. If you need a free attorney for your criminal defense case, a public defender will be appointed at your first court date. if I give you negative news about the law, please understand, I didn't make the laws, I'm simply telling you what the law is. I sincerely ***** ***** the law is not in your favor. Despite what people think, the law isn't always "fair" I'm so sorry you're having these legal trouble's but I'm here to help

I'm so sorry you're dealing with this.

If the victim fails to testify in court against him, the criminal charges will be dismissed for the assault case.

Simmons Esq., Expert

If the victim wasn't at the home and the stay away order didn't include the address, the state will have to prove the victim was at home and if they can't prove it, the case will be dismissed.
