The History of Criminal Justice.

So, how did we get to where we are today?  Law enforcement in ancient China was administered by “prefects”.  Under the rule of Dang Lin Wang a new judicial system began to emerge.  Prefects usually reported to the local magistrate, just as modern police report to judges.  Prefects were responsible for handling investigations, much like modern police detectives.

In ancient Rome and Greece duties associated with modern police enforcement were done by private citizens.  The Roman Empire somehow managed to maintain civil order until its fall.  Believe it or not, the city of Rome never had an actual police force!  By the reign of Augustus Rome had a population of over one million citizens.

Today, when someone is accused of a crime they seek the services of a great criminal attorney.  One of the very best is Akron Ohio DUI and criminal lawyer Jon Sinn.  Having worked for both sides, nobody knows better than Jon that the only sin you may have committed is NOT calling him right away.  From his family to yours Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

Criminal Trial 101.

We hope that you or a loved one never has to be faced with a criminal trial in Ohio or any other state for that matter.  Just in case one ever haunts your family we want you to understand the basics.  Depending on the circumstances, you may receive a summons, an appearance notice, etc.  No matter what document it happens to be, make sure that you hang on to it.

Soon, the prosecutors must give you a copy of all of the charges against you.  This is known as “disclosure”.  They must disclose police reports, witness statements, a history of your personal criminal record, and any statements you may have already made.  Here is an important lesson.  Call an attorney BEFORE you incriminate yourself!

That is why I have served Northeast Ohio for many years defending criminal cases in Ohio courts.  Akron is my home and criminal law is my sole focus.  My name is Jon Sinn.  I hope that you or your family will never need to call me, but sometimes the only sin you may have committed is NOT calling me…Ohio criminal defense attorney Jon Sinn at (330) 431-0160.

Domestic Violence…A Very Complicated Topic.

No one would dispute that domestic violence is very serious and occurs everywhere in the U.S.  We in Northeast Ohio are faced with the reality of these charges every day.  There are, however, many situations where someone can be wrongly accused of domestic violence.  Many spouses will use false claims of physical and emotional abuse.

Some of the reasons are –

1.  Getting a significant other out of one’s life
2.  To win a child custody battle
3.  Gain possession of property
4.  To just get even when someone is told that the other party wants a divorce

Certainly, not all accusations of domestic violence are legitimate.  That is why Jon Sinn, a noted Akron area criminal defense attorney is there to help.  He has been defending Ohio residents of domestic violence charges for many years.  Sometimes, the only sin you may have committed is NOT calling Jon.  He is attorney Jon Sinn of Akron OH at (330) 431-0160.

Rehab vs. Jail…No Brainer!

People all over Ohio are arrested for drug crimes every day.  Nationwide, about one in 12 Americans are considered to be addicted to a substance.  Just remember; you are NOT alone!  Most of the time, jailtime for drug and alcohol related offenses doesn’t work.  Three out of four people who spend time in jail will commit the same crime when they are released.

Here is a startling stat.  Half of inmates nationwide meet substance dependence criteria, but only about one in ten get any treatment!  This wide disparity is largely the result of overcrowded courtrooms.  In those rooms drug offenses are treated with extreme severity.  That is just the way it is nationwide and in Northeast Ohio.

One answer is to call Akron drug defense attorney Jon Sinn.  If you or a loved one has been arrested for a drug-related crime call attorney Sinn immediately.  Many times, the only sin you may have committed under the law is NOT calling Jon.  Please visit his website at  Then give him a call anytime day or night at (330) 431-0160.
