Keep Riding Or Store Your Motorcycle?

For many, the 2015 motorcycle season is over in Ohio. For some, the hope of a few more sunny days in the 50s is keeping their bikes out of storage. There are some riders, however, who will continue to ride throughout the winter. While Ohio does not have ideal weather for year-round motorcycling, some choose to continue riding long after temperatures have dropped. With proper preparation and equipment, it is possible to continue to ride your motorcycle safely. Unfortunately, motorists may be even less likely than usual to keep an eye out for motorcyclists.

Ohio man facing felony charges due to multiple OVI offenses

One man in Ohio may be looking to determine what legal options best suit his circumstances after recently being taken into custody.

This means that unless certain circumstances or special relationships exist, such as teacher/student or player/coach, two consenting individuals over the age of 16 can engage in sexual relations and it is perfectly legal. Amazingly, however, juveniles over the age of 16 still run the risk of registering as a sexual offender if they engage in "sexting" as the law has not yet caught up to what is becoming a social norm.

Rape At Ohio Colleges

The Ohio University Police Department says that reports of sexual assault have quadrupled over last year. At this time last year, there had been six reports of sex crimes. This year, there have been twenty-three. These reports range from public indecency to rape. A spokesperson says that the increase probably does not reflect an increase in incidents, but rather an increase in reporting.
