Ohio's Judicial Release Statute and Its Recent Changes

In Ohio, an offender sentenced to a prison term may be eligible for early release. Ohio law calls this judicial release, the eligibility requirements of which are set forth in R.C. § 2929.20. To be eligible, the offender must be serving a prison term containing one or more non-mandatory prison terms. Notably, an offender serving a prison term for certain offenses committed while holding public office or related to the offender's conduct as a public official is not eligible for early release.

Local Judge Orders Suppression of Evidence

Last week a local judge ordered all evidence gathered by police as a result of a warrantless search and seizure of our client and his vehicle suppressed. As a result, this decision prevents the State from introducing evidence from our client's vehicle of drug possession, drug trafficking, and possession of criminal tools-all felonies which subjected our client to a maximum of 12 months in prison on each count and the possibility of a license suspension.

Motorcycle safety and autonomous vehicles

When a car and a motorcycle collide, the fault often lies with the driver of the automobile. The typical excuse from the driver is that he or she never saw the motorcycle. In other words, driver error is the most likely cause of crashes involving cars and motorcycles. Given that, should motorcyclists be enthusiastic about the possibility of self-driving cars?
