Many people believe that when contacted by the police there is no harm in talking. Unfortunately, they are mistaken and, as a result, serious consequences can occur.
This month a judge in New York ruled that mentioning a protected person in a Facebook post constitutes communication and therefore violates protection orders. The criminal defense attorney in the case argued that the charges should be dismissed because the protection order did not specifically state that Facebook was a prohibited platform. The judge disagreed.
Minimum Insurance Requirements For Ohio Drivers
It is illegal to drive your motorcycle on Ohio roads without meeting certain minimum requirements for financial responsibility. Most riders meet that standard by buying motorcycle insurance. Insurance coverage is tied to the vehicle, not the individual. If you have an auto insurance policy for a car, that is not sufficient to allow you to ride your motorcycle legally. Given that motorcycle insurance is more or less required for Ohio riders, it is natural to wonder exactly what you are getting for your money.
In addition to the mandatory driver's license suspension that must be imposed for a drug conviction in Ohio, Defendants, especially ones enrolled in or considering applying to college, must also be aware of the ramifications of a drug conviction on their student aid. The FAFSA application specifically asks, "Have you been convicted for the possession or sale of illegal drugs for an offense that occurred while you were receiving federal student aid (such as grants, loans or work-study)?" Thus, even a conviction for a minor misdemeanor possession of marijuana can have major ramifications for financial aid.
