What Should You Do If You're Falsely Accused of a Sex Crime?

In the era of #MeToo, it seems that sex crimes are more prevalent than ever. In reality, we're just more likely to hear about them now than in years past. Although Ohio sexual assaults were reported at a rate of 86.9 per 100,000 population in 2015, you have to remember that this number does not include all those sex crimes that were not reported by victims. Ultimately, sexual assault victims are far less likely to report at all than they are to falsely accuse someone of a sex crime. However, that's not to say that false accusations never happen. They can and do -- at essentially the same rate that all false reports of other crimes occur. If you feel you have been falsely accused of a sex crime, you may be overwhelmed with emotion and confused about what to do next. We hope this post will help you protect yourself, should you ever be involved in this scenario. Here are some important things to keep in mind if you're falsely accused of sexual assault or another sex crime.

Possession Misconceptions: Dispelling Drug Charge Myths

Although the public opinion surrounding how we classify and criminalize drug use is starting to show signs of change, that doesn't mean the law is quick to catch up. Our nation's rampant drug use may be considered a social crisis, but it's typically still treated as a criminal one. As a result, jails and prisons all across the country are still being filled with citizens who have addiction issues or who made the choice to use illegal drugs. In fact, 84.7% of all arrests made for drug law violations in the United States during 2016 were for possession of a controlled substance -- which could be anything from marijuana and prescription medications to cocaine or methamphetamine.

Understanding Drug Search and Seizure Laws in Ohio

If you have been charged of a crime -- and even if you are subsequently convicted of that crime -- it's essential to remember that you still have a number of rights as provided by the U.S. Constitution. Although nearly 1.9 million people in the state of Ohio have criminal records, all of those people are granted specific rights that ensure that a speedy and fair trial takes place and that no punishment can be deemed cruel and unusual.

Outlined in the Fourth Amendment, this right makes certain that all persons are protected against unlawful searches and seizures of personal property except in cases of probable cause.
