Ohio Representative charged with DUI, felony drug possession

Ohio State Representative Sedrick Denson, D-Bond Hill, reportedly faces criminal charges after a routine traffic stop earlier this month. Denson apparently was stopped for speeding and driving outside lane lines. Denson apparently submitted to a number of field sobriety tests, including the finger-to-nose, walk-and-turn and Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus. However, Denson allegedly refused a chemical test, according to the police complaint.

New drug bill may reclassify minor drug possession in Ohio

All across the nation, lawmakers are making an impact on criminal justice reform, particularly when it comes to minor drug crimes. Many people in possession of drugs for their own personal addictions have been charged with felonies in the state of Ohio. However, lawmakers recently introduced Senate Bill 3 in an effort to make many minor drug possession charges misdemeanors rather than felonies. Lawmakers hope the Senate passes the bill by June of this year.

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.

Local men face federal charges for drug trafficking

Three men here in Ohio are facing federal charges for possession of drugs.

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.
