Don’t Leave the Scene of an Accident.

If you are ever involved in a car accident where you are the driver and you hit another vehicle, a fixed object, or heaven forbid an individual do NOT panic and stay there to assist in any way if you are able.  Hit and run in the state of Ohio is not normally based on fault.  The violation occurs when the driver leaves the scene even if they are NOT at fault.

The penalty for leaving the scene of an accident may include a fine and jail time.  What you may not know is that the infraction may be classified as either a felony or a misdemeanor.  So let’s review - it does not have to be your fault even if you think it is at the time.  If you flee you may not remain free.  The severity of the situation may depend on your ability to stay calm and stay put.

Whatever happens in the aftermath, even if you have made a bad decision, make your next decision a good one.  Contact Akron Ohio hit and run accident defense attorney Jon Sinn.  It’s no sin to do the smart thing.  Attorney Jon Sinn will represent you aggressively to see that you secure the best outcome possible.  Call him today to arrange a meeting at (330) 431-0160.

Being Charged with Domestic Violence.

Domestic violence is on the rise…especially with advent of summer.  Hotter temperatures often bring shorter tempers.  In the state of Ohio domestic violence is defined as causing or attempting to cause harm to a family or household member.  Men and women can be perpetrators of this crime and men, women, as well as minors can be victims. These cases can be especially challenging for law enforcement as the police are most often not there when violence occurs.

On the scene when the police arrive the truth has shades of gray and the police don’t get all the right information before accusing someone of domestic violence.  At this moment it is imperative to STAY CALM.  Let the police sort out the situation and do their job even if the initial results are not to your liking.  As the old saying goes in the vernacular, ”don’t make no trouble”.

If you are the one who gets carted off to jail, DO NOT CALL the person you had the disagreement with and definitely don’t discuss the case with anyone.  If you must make a call to someone to arrange for assistance don’t discuss your case at all.  Everything you say is being recorded.  Akron Ohio domestic violence defense attorney Jon Sinn can and will help you fight your case. Call attorney Jon Sinn at (330) 431-0160.
