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.
