Proposed Constitutional Amendment Could Provide Greater Rights for Ohio Victims of Crime

A push is underway to amend the Ohio Constitution to expand the rights of Ohio victims of crime. This amendment, titled Marsy's Law, would, among other things, guarantee certain rights for victims, including:

Invoking the Miranda right to Counsel

In a recent case handled by our attorneys, police arrested a suspect and told his family that he would be questioned about criminal allegations at the local police station. The family, concerned about what the suspect might say, tried to prohibit the police from questioning the suspect by telling police that the suspect "does not want to be questioned" and he "wants a lawyer". Despite the family's pleas, the police proceeded with the questioning of the suspect at the police station. Unfortunately, because of the police questioning, the suspect eventually made inconsistent and incriminating statements that drastically affected the outcome of his case.

How long do I have to file a lawsuit for personal injuries?

Like many states, the deadline in Ohio to file a lawsuit against another person or entity for injuries they caused depends on the nature of the injury. This deadline is referred to as the statute of limitations. The purpose for the statute of limitations is at least twofold: first, it helps to ensure evidence is not lost over time such that a person being sued (i.e., a defendant) cannot effectively defend him- or herself against the claim; and second, it incentivizes a person suing another to pursue his or her valid claim diligently.
