Drug charges dropped against Browns wide receiver

If you were arrested for drug possession or any drug-related charges, there is every chance that your charges could be dismissed with the right defense strategy. Antonio Callaway, wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns, was facing a misdemeanor charge for marijuana possession following a traffic stop in August of last year, but has since had the charge dismissed.

Local men face federal charges for drug trafficking

Three men here in Ohio are facing federal charges for possession of drugs. The FBI raided a regular neighborhood hangout and allegedly seized drugs and more than $10,000 in cash from two homes connected with the case. All three of the men suspected by the authorities to be involved have been charged with federal drug crimes and may face a prison sentence ranging from 10 years to life if they are convicted.

Botched arrest illustrates problems with controlled buys

Many people might think that a controlled drug buy is a slam dunk for law enforcement. For those who do not know, a controlled buy is one set up by police using either an undercover officer or a confidential informant, oftentimes someone who is getting paid or who is trying to get leniency for pending charges.

Proposed drug law changes divide the state

Ohio prisons are 30 percent over capacity right now, which is one of the reasons that many experts are supporting a ballot measure that would make the possession of a low-level drug a misdemeanor instead of a felony. Ohio is heading to the polls and will be voting on Issue 1, a proposal that's getting a lot of pushback.

Are the drug crime charges I am facing fair?

Ohio residents reading the newspapers or listening to the news often hear that a certain person or group has been charged with committing a number of crimes and mostly assume that if someone has been charged with committing a crime, they most certainly must have committed it. However, many people are not aware of the process known as criminal charge stacking-the process of adding more criminal charges than is actually fair.

Alternative sentences explained

While many people facing criminal charges may find themselves getting a prison sentence, this is not always the result of a conviction. Depending on the type of the crime one has committed, the severity of it, the defendant's criminal history, their age and the effect of the crime on others, different types of sentences could be pursued. Alternative sentencing can be especially beneficial when it comes to dealing with minor drug crimes, as an Ohio defendant could get treatment for an addiction rather than penalized for it.
