FELONY BURGLARY CHARGES AMENDED TO MISDEMEANOR -- our client, a 31 year old single mom, was indicted on a single count of Burlgary. Suspecting that her boyfriend was cheating on her, our client drove to her friend's house whom she suspected was sleeping with her boyfriend. The back door was open, she entered, and a fight ensued between our client and this other woman. Under Ohio law, entering the dwelling of another with the purpose of committing any additional crime is a felony. Today, based upon our client's good record and remorse, the State agreed to amend the indictment to Aggravated Trespass. Our client was sentenced to 1 year of non-reporting probation. She was not fined but was merely ordered to pay the court costs of the case.
