Conviction in the Sixth District Court of Appeals

Last week Rion Law had a conviction and fourteen year sentence reversed in the Sixth District court of appeals. The defendant pled guilty the morning of trial, despite his innocence, because his lawyer was not prepared for trial. After entering the plea, he asked the court to vacate his plea, explaining he only pled because his attorney was not prepared. The trial court denied that request and sentenced him to fourteen years. On appeal, the Sixth District reversed the conviction and sentence. The court found the trial lawyer was not prepared for trial and had not investigated the case, which induced the defendant to enter a guilty plea. Now this defendant can proceed to trial and have his day in court.

Understanding Child Custody

Child custody is a difficult concern that comes up in many divorce cases. Parents experience a great deal of stress during a divorce, and children often feel even worse. Keeping family relationships intact during these hard times is a challenge as you try to balance what is best for everyone involved.

When parents separate from one another, the needs of the children must be seen to. A major part of this is determining who will have custody of the children, and to what extent. Depending on the circumstances of the divorce and the family relationship that preceded it, custody may be split up in a variety of ways. Sometimes parents will share equal custody, and other times only one parent will have sole custody. Other options include split custody wherein one parent has more limited access to the children. The needs of the children are often considered in court when custody is disputed, and the children themselves may voice their preferences at times.

If you are going through a divorce or fighting for the custody of your children, contact the family lawyers at Rion, Rion & Rion. Our attorneys will focus diligently on your case and strive to give you and your children the best outcome possible. Call (937) 223-9133 for a consultation.

Important Facts About Slips and Falls

Each year, slip-and-fall injuries account for around 1 million hospital visits. These accidents occur in many different settings and on a variety of surfaces. It is important to know the many risks of slips and falls, which can have significant legal and health-related consequences. If you suffer a slip-and-fall injury due to the negligence of another party, you are entitled to compensation that will allow you to recover properly. Read on to learn some facts about slips and falls.

Slip and Fall Hazards

Certain surfaces and situations create increased risks for slips and falls. Be especially careful if you are walking on or near uneven surfaces, stairs, crowds, ramps, and doorways. Icy surfaces are an additional risk in the winter months. If you notice that an area seems particularly dangerous, notify the owner of the property. If they fail to address safety concerns, they could be sued in the event of an accident.

Slip and Fall Injuries

When a person experiences a slip-and-fall accident, they may suffer a variety of injuries. Many people try to catch themselves as they fall, breaking hands and arms in the process. Older adults frequently experience broken hips as a result of slips and falls. In severe cases, such as slips on ice or falls down stairs, victims may suffer injuries to the brain or spinal cord. These injuries have a terrible impact on people’s lives, and recovery can be long and expensive.

Slip and Fall Statistics

Of all slip-and-fall injuries, hip fractures are the most serious. They lead to more health complications than any other type of injury, and can lead to wrongful death. According to the CDC, approximately 22,900 older adults died as a result of fall injuries in 2011. Falls also lead to many workplace injuries, with 85% of worker’s compensation claims linked to falls on slippery surfaces.

What is Money Laundering?

Criminals who manage to build up a significant income that they don’t want noticed by the government need to find a way to use and store the money in a way that looks perfectly legal from the outside. This is called money laundering.

This video explains a few common approaches to money laundering. One way to launder money is by setting up a business with the primary purpose of hiding the source of illegal income. Another common method involves gambling at table games in casinos.

If you have been accused of money laundering or other criminal offenses, contact the skilled criminal defense lawyers at Rion, Rion & Rion.

What Is Division of Property?

During a marriage, most possessions—if not all—are shared between spouses. This can include houses, cars, bank accounts, and even items like tools and furniture. What happens to all of these things in the event of a divorce? They must be separated in a fair manner.

Division of property is often a particularly stressful aspect of divorce cases. Each spouse generally wants to end the negotiations with as much property as they can lay claim to. Family lawyers will represent their clients to ensure that assets and possessions are divided fairly, helping to determine who really deserves what. State law often determines how property is divided in terms of value, but the actual separation of belongings is rarely simple.

If you are facing a divorce, hire a family lawyer to ensure that your needs are well represented during struggles over concerns such as division of property and child custody. For your best chance in divorce negotiations, contact Rion, Rion & Rion at (937) 223-9133.
