No Wakie Bakie.

Sorry, Ohioans you have not come around just yet to the notion that marijuana should be treated like alcohol.  Whether we like it or not this controversial “drug” is still illegal in the Buckeye State and will be for the foreseeable future.  Ohio is a state where NO ONE can ever say…it’s no big deal it’s just weed.

Prosecutors have a penchant for treating recreational marijuana users the same way that they treat hard drug defendants.  It may seem archaic, but that is the way it is.  By the way, medical use of weed was approved by the state on Sept. 8, 2016.  Another piece of good news is that Ohio has loosened its marijuana laws in general.

However, (and read this point very carefully) even though the possession of less than 100 grams of cannabis is not a jailable offense it could result in someone losing their driver’s license for up to FIVE years!  Could you afford that?  In Northeast Ohio you need to call Akron marijuana defense attorney Jon Sinn immediately.  The only sin is not calling Jon at (330) 431-0160.

What is Judicial Release?

Summer is a good time to revisit the subject of judicial release.  If you are not an attorney it is a complicated process.  It may take 60 days or more to complete so it is important to address it now so that you may have your loved one home by the end of summer.  Now, let’s get into what judicial release means in the Buckeye state.

Early release is the process by which convicted felons can be released from prison before serving their entire sentence.  In most cases, the prisoner is placed on a form of probation under the supervision of the court that sent them to prison in the first place.  In Ohio, the law states IF and WHEN a person can apply for judicial release.

An experienced criminal attorney is needed to move this process along.  In Northeast Ohio that man is Akron judicial release lawyer Jon Sinn.  He will get things moving and keep them going to reach the conclusion that your family is looking for.  You see, the only sin is not calling Jon.  Jon Sinn at (330) 431-0160.
