Sex Crimes Lawyer - Cleveland, Ohio Attorney Ron Frey

As a criminal defense lawyer, I have represented 100's of individuals facing allegations involving a sex crime. They may be charged with Rape, Gross Sexual Imposition, Importuning, Voyeurism, Public Indecency, or Pandering Obscenity and Illegal Use of a Minor. In each and every one of these cases, the stigma and impact upon the individual charged, from the allegation alone, is drastic. Although there is a presumption of innocence within the criminal justice system (presumed innocent until proven guilty), that presumption does not mean that there will not be severe and immediate consequences to both the individual charged and his or her immediate family and friends. Specifically, the allegation can result in an arrest, the collection of personal property by law enforcement and possibly incarceration until the case is resolved. Further, these matters are public record and the media is free to report on the allegation. This often involves the publication of the accused's mugshot within the newspaper and television.

If convicted of a sex crime, the punishments can be severe. In addition to the possibility of prison or jail time, there are also sexual registration requirements that are imposed. If you, or someone you know, is under investigation or is facing an allegation involving a sex crime, it is important to consult with a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. I am prepared to address the matter and meet with you to discuss the situation in confidence. Please do not hesitate to call The Frey Law Firm for a free initial consultation at (844) 766-3739.

The Ariel Castro Indictment - What to Expect

The Ariel Castro Indictment - What to Expect

By +Ron Frey

        According to media reports, the investigation against Ariel Castro remains ongoing. Upon the collection and review of all evidence by the investigators, the matter will be presented by the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor, or a representative from the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office, to a Cuyahoga County Grand Jury. Thereafter, an Indictment will be returned and filed. The purpose of the Indictment is to put the Defendant on notice of the specific charges that have been brought. Generally, an Indictment will include the following items:

1. specific offense(s) charged;

2. the code section of the offense(s) from the Ohio Revised Code;

3. the date, or date range. of the alleged offense(s); 

4. the location whereupon the offenses are alleged to have been committed; and

5. the identity of the victim(s).

Although the Indictment will contain the above information, it will not go into any great specificity regarding the actual details of the alleged conduct. This information will be released as the case progresses through the system via the public hearings and any public records or public comments.

Based upon information released to the public in the Castro case, it is anticipated that there will be many counts brought against Castro once the matter is reviewed by the Cuyahoga County Grand Jury. To give an example of how voluminous this Indictment may be, one should consider that generally, in Cuyahoga County, if a defendant is accused of improper sexual touching, he or she could face a separate count or charge for each body part that was improperly touched. As such, a person can find themselves charged with many counts from a single, relatively brief, alleged incident.

In the Castro case, the investigation includes allegations from three (3) separate victims. Further, the allegations involve years of captivity. As such, it will come as no surprise if the Castro Indictment contains a multitude of counts and specifications. Obviously, we will have to wait until the Indictment is returned, but it must be noted that it is not at all uncommon to see Indictments filed in Cuyahoga County that contain a voluminous number of counts, sometimes in excess of one-hundred (100) counts.

If you have any questions regarding what to expect from the Castro Indictment, or would simply like to speak with a Cleveland, Ohio Criminal Defense Lawyer, please contact the law firm of Friedman & Frey, L.L.C. Our attorneys are prepared to address your questions and ensure that your rights are protected. Please call (216) 928-7700 for a free initial consultation.
