False Accusations Of Rape, Sexual Imposition, And Sexual Battery

Rape is a horrific crime. Being falsely accused of rape is equally horrific. The consequences for being found guilty range from three to eleven years in prison, life in prison if the victim is a child, and lifetime sexual offender registration. If accused, you need an experienced attorney. Do not wait until you have been charged to call a lawyer. Contact a criminal defense lawyer who has successfully defended sex offense cases if you are contacted by the police before speaking with anyone about the accusations.

Ohio's Driving While Texting Laws

In 2012, Ohio enacted its first ban on texting while driving. This law prohibits drivers from writing, sending and even reading a text-based communication. This ban covers not only text messages but emails as well. The statute does allow drivers to receive messages regarding navigation-so GPS and mobile traffic apps appear safe. However, checking your texts or email at a red light or while stuck in traffic is a violation of this statute; the vehicle must be stationary and outside a lane of travel. A violation of this law is a minor misdemeanor and carries a maximum possible fine of $150.

A Car Accident Is Not An Accident

According to a recent news article, Dr. Mark Rosekind of the National Highway Traffic Administration said that using the word "accident" when referring to a car crash infers that "God made it happen." Safety experts and safety advocates believe that the use of the word "accident" trivializes the seriousness of auto crashes which kill or maim thousands yearly. Safety experts and advocates want the media, the courts, and any agency that investigates traffic crashes to stop using the word "accident" because it minimizes the most common cause of car crashes which is human error.
