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.
