Columbus Criminal Attorney Discusses Detention and Arrest of Shoplifters in Ohio (https://goo.gl/kP62TF)

Ohio has one general law prohibiting theft, not specific laws that pertain to shoplifting or larceny. However, if someone is suspected of shoplifting, they can be detained by the merchant before law enforcement arrives.

According to Ohio law, a store merchant or employee can detain someone who has committed theft. In order to detain them, however, they must follow these requirements:

☞ Probable cause with reasonable and articulate suspicion.
☞ Detention must occur within the vicinity of the store, so a person cannot follow the alleged offender and then detain them somewhere else.
☞ A search cannot be made nor can the alleged offender's property be taken.
☞ Do not use undue restraint.
☞ Reasonably conduct the detention to cause a police arrest.
☞ Detention must occur for a reasonable length of time (i.e., not hours)

Ohio Township Cop Quits After Woman Arrested for DUI Says Officer Sent Lewd Photos (https://goo.gl/vojmy4)

Ohio Township Officer Dominic DeJulio was suspended for five days and required to undergo a series of psychological evaluations before resigning from his post after scandalous allegations against him surfaced.

He was accused of sending numerous sexually explicit photos to a woman he arrested and charged with driving under the influence.

The 40-year-old woman did not wish to pursue criminal charges against the arresting officer, so the DUI charges were dropped against her. According to the District Attorney's office, pursuing a DUI case would have forced the woman to deal with the officer's "unprofessional behavior" during trial testimony.

Ohio Man Calls 911 After Being Stalked by a Pig -- Cops Wrongly Assume He's Drunk (https://goo.gl/9AD7Jg)

Police in Elyria, Ohio responded to a call from a man who claimed he was being stalked by a pig and didn't know what to do. Officers incorrectly assumed he was drunk, but when they arrived at the scene, they realized that the man was sober and was literally being followed by a pig.

Police wrangled the animal into the back of a cop cruiser, put it in a dog kennel, and eventually returned it to its owner.

In 2015, the same police department was faced with having to corral a large kangaroo back into its cage just before dawn.

And yes, it's legal to have a kangaroo in Ohio, assuming you have the proper permits in place!

Adam Blackmore, 33, was charged with drunk driving and suspected striking of a police officer with his vehicle.

He was charged with failing to proceed with due regard/safety to drive in marked lanes.

Miami Twp. Officer Tyler Simpson, the injured officer, explained how his cruiser was stopped on an exit ramp on Interstate 75 as he was assisting with a crash.

Columbus Criminal Defense Lawyer Discusses Sexual Imposition in the Workplace (https://goo.gl/6wpHmY)

Just because you don't think it's a sex crime doesn't mean it's not!

In the case of State v. Guenther, the defendant was convicted of one count of sexual imposition and one count of gross imposition. He was accused of inappropriately touching a female co-worker on at least three occasions.

According to the victim's testimony, the defendant touched her breast by rubbing his chest against hers. Another time, another male blocked the victim from exiting the room and the defendant touched her breast again. Lastly, the defendant prevented the victim from leaving her chair so he could touch her breasts.

Her testimony was corroborated by her supervisor, who had not witnessed the event but was aware the victim was visibly shaken around the defendant.

Brian Joslyn has years of experience defending individuals facing sexual imposition charges. He is familiar with the tactics of the sex crimes investigators and prosecutors. He will skillfully examine all the evidence against you and develop the strongest defense possible.

Ohio Mail Carrier Sent to Prison for Stealing Marijuana Packages (https://goo.gl/coe9ya)

A mail carrier in Ohio was sentenced to three months in prison for stealing over ten pounds of marijuana from mail intended for delivery to two residences.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, 43-year-old Thomas Schaefer pleaded guilty to one count of mail theft back in December.

Schaefer had been assigned to the Newburgh Heights post office when he suspected that a package intended for delivery to a Cleveland home contained marijuana and decided to keep it.

After he kept a parcel containing pot addressed to a Garfield Heights home a few months later, he was arrested.

Schaefer's attorney says that he wants to put this behind him.

Canadian Man Sentenced for Sexual Exploitation Crime Against Cleveland Area Teen (https://goo.gl/VXGPdK)

A Canadian man has been sentenced to prison after telling a federal judge that he flew to Cleveland to have sex with a 17-year-old and thought it was legal because he'd looked up Ohio's age of consent online.

Joseph Haggerty, 50, flew to Ohio with a duffel bag filled with pacifiers, condoms, and a stuffed tiger. Since Ohio's legal age of consent is 16, he thought what he was doing was legal. What he allegedly did not know, however, is that federal law prohibits the coercion of someone under age 18 to pose for sexually explicit photos.

Haggerty pleaded guilty to sexual exploitation of a child and was sentenced to 15 years, two months in federal prison. The judge gave Haggerty a lower sentence than what the prosecution requested because he'd lived a law-abiding life and the recidivism rates for older people are lower than those of younger people.

Columbus Criminal Defense Lawyer Explains Sexual Imposition Laws in Ohio (https://goo.gl/6wpHmY)

While the average person is aware of what constitutes rape or sexual battery, they may not be aware that certain kinds of sexual contact with an impaired person constitute sexual imposition, a criminal offense.

What is Sexual Imposition?
In Ohio, it's considered a criminal offense to have sexual contact or cause other people to have sexual contact with another person who is not their spouse when the alleged offender:

☞ knew the sexual contact was offensive
☞ knew the other person's ability to control the situation was substantially impaired
☞ knew the other person submitted because they were unaware of the sexual contact
☞ was at least 18 at the time and four or more years older than the other person and the other person was less than 16 years old
☞ was a mental health professional who induced a patient to believe the sexual conduct was necessary for mental health treatment

Columbus Criminal Lawyer Explains What to Do If You're Pulled over for Suspicion of OVI/DUI in Ohio (https://goo.gl/mdY7E1)

If an officer pulls you over because they suspect you're under the influence, you'll likely be arrested. What makes a difference in whether the consequences are reduced, however, is what you do and don't do.

Don't panic
This may be easier said than done when there are flashing lights all around and you may have somewhere to be. Breathe deeply and remain calm. Pull over at a safe place and reduce your speed.

Be polite
When you've pulled over safely, turn off your car and place your hands on the steering wheel and remain in the car unless you're asked otherwise. Be courteous to the officer and don't make sudden movements or act strangely.

Ask for an attorney
Don't disclose any information (aside from license, vehicle registration, and insurance) to the officer, without having an attorney present. Don't give any oral statements or sign anything.

Call Joslyn Law Firm as soon as you have the opportunity. Our attorneys are highly experienced and very knowledgeable about Ohio state law. Save our number to your cell phone now just in case: (614) 444-1900.
