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 sinnlaw.com.  Then give him a call anytime day or night at (330) 431-0160.

Here are some types of sex crimes –

1.  Indecency with a minor
2.  Aggravated sexual assault
3.  Statutory rape
4.  Possessing child pornography
5.  Internet sex crimes

The landscape has changed, and the prosecution has ramped up its vigorous pursuit of sex crime offenders.  If someone you care about has been accused of a sex crime in the state of Ohio please immediately call Akron sex crime criminal defense attorney Jon Sinn.  It may simply be a case that the only sin you have committed is not calling Jon.  That’s Jon Sinn at (330) 431-0160.

It’s Time to Come Home.

How do you apply for judicial release in the State of Ohio and what is judicial release?  The Buckeye State provides an avenue for early release from prison called judicial release. It’s a unique power that the sentencing judge has to grant inmates early release from prison under certain circumstances. 

Here are some of the parameters in filing for judicial release:

- If you’re serving less than two years you can file after 30 days.
- If your serving at least two years, but less than five years you can file after 180 days.
- If your prison term is for 5 years, you cannot file for release until after the fourth year.
- If your prison term is more than 5 years but less than 10 years, you must serve five years.
- If your prison term is more than 10 years, then you must serve half of your sentence or five   years, whichever is a greater amount of time.

Judicial release may be a way to reunite you with your loved one much sooner than you expected.  To discover how it may affect your family contact Akron criminal defense attorney Jon Sinn.  Don’t let your only sin become not calling Jon.  He may well be able to take action on your behalf in Ohio Criminal Court.  Call his Akron office at (330) 431-0160.

The Difference Between 1st and 2nd Degree Murder.

First and second degree murders all involve killings or inflicting very serious bodily harm to a person but only vary in degree.  First degree murder is basically defined as a murder that has a deliberate intent to take one’s life.  Contrarily, second degree murder is defined as an unplanned type of murder.

Obviously, the punishments for first and second degree murders also differ.  First degree murder has a heavier punishment compared to second degree murder.  People convicted of the latter are generally sentenced to a minimum of 20 years in an Ohio prison.  Understanding the charge of 1st or 2nd degree can make all of the difference.

Ohio criminal defense attorney Jon Sinn understands murder defense as well as anyone in the Buckeye State.  We don’t need to tell you that if a loved one has been arrested on a murder charge you should call Attorney Sinn immediately.  Who knows…the only sin you may have committed is not calling Jon right away.  That phone number is (330) 431-0160.

The Spotlight is on Sex Crimes.

These days sex crimes are magnified.  The “Me Too” movement and other forms of awareness have brought them to the forefront.  Perhaps, there is not another accusation that comes with the public perception of guilt more than being arrested for a sex crime.  The stigma will stay with you and it needs to be aggressively defended.

So many people are falsely accused in this “he-said, she-said scenario”.  It may be a charge of rape, perhaps it is harassment in the workplace, or even unlawful pornography on one’s computer.  Whatever the charge, they all carry the same perception that people seem to have…guilty until proven innocent.

That is NOT how our justice system is supposed to work!  It has to be the other way around.  If you or a loved one has been accused of a sex crime in the state of Ohio, your next call should be to Akron criminal defense attorney Jon Sinn.  The only Sinn you may have committed is not calling Jon.  That’s sex crime defense lawyer Jon Sinn at (330) 431-0160.
