5 Questions Answered

Q. In ohio how do i find out if im linked to a specific car or that cars license plate?
A: In Ohio, warrants are issued against a person, not property. While the car is registered to your father, the warrant is linked to your name, date of birth, and social security number. The BMV will put a warrant block on your license (if you had one), preventing you from renewing your license until the warrant is lifted/resolved. Good luck - I hope this helps!
Q. I recently filed for domestic violence in Ohio but no longer want to go through with the charges.
A: Contact the prosecutor and victim advocate (if one is assigned) and let them know that you no longer want to proceed forward with the case and want the case dismissed. If you don't show up to court, the court can find you in contempt and issue a warrant for your arrest. If you contact the prosecutor and tell them you lied, you can be charged with falsification, which is a first degree misdemeanor. Your best option for dropping the case is contacting the prosecutor.
Q. Should I avoid going to court or say I lied?
A: There is no easy for your situation. First, I hope everyone remains safe. Notify the prosecutor, the victim advocate, and defense attorney that you no longer want to proceed forward with the case and want it dismissed. The court can issue a warrant for your arrest if you fail to show up in court. You risk being charged with falsification (a First Degree Misdemeanor) if you say you lied about the incident. The same can occur if you tell the court or prosecutor that you are mentally insane. Simply, contact all the parties working on the case and let them know your position. Ultimately, the power to dismiss the case rests with the prosecutor. Good luck and stay safe!
