In the summer the weather is not the only thing that heats up in Ohio. Tempers do the same! There is a clear relationship between warmer weather and hotter tempers. In one study done by Dr. Leah Schinasi, published in the Journal of Urban Health, it showed that disorderly conduct increased when daily temperatures are higher.
Overall, crime rates were highest in the warmest months of the year—May through September—and highest on the hottest days. For example, when the heat index is over 90 degrees, rates of violent crime were 9 percent higher compared to days when the temperature was 57 degrees. It just makes sense…the hotter it is the shorter are people’s tempers.
Akron criminal defense attorney Jon Sinn understands that, and with summer upon us there will probably be a rise in violent crime in the Northeast Ohio area. Being arrested for a violent crime does not make you guilty. Sometimes the only sin you may have committed is NOT calling Jon. Attorney Jon Sinn at (330) 431-0160.
