Ohio Criminal Law FAQ

Can a criminal record be expunged in Ohio?

Ohio law allows for the expungement or sealing of certain criminal records, which can help you move forward without the burden of a past conviction. Eligibility for expungement depends on several factors, including the nature of the offense and your criminal history. Our criminal attorney can help determine if you qualify for expungement and guide you through the process of clearing your record.

What is the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony?

In Ohio, misdemeanors are less serious offenses punishable by fines and up to one year in jail, while felonies are more serious crimes that carry harsher penalties, including longer prison sentences. The classification of the offense will impact the severity of the penalties you face.

What are the potential consequences of a criminal conviction in Ohio?

The consequences of a criminal conviction in Ohio can vary widely depending on the nature and severity of the offense. Potential penalties include fines, probation, community service, and imprisonment. Additionally, a conviction can have long-term consequences on your employment, housing, and personal relationships.
