Criminal Justice Update

How to get the fastest results possible for your DNA case

Law enforcement agencies can decrease the turnaround time for individual cases by:


Honoring the fallen

Law enforcement from across the state will gather at 11 a.m. May 3 to honor six of their peers who lost their lives in the line of duty in 2011 and six historical nominees. The Ohio Peace Officers’ Memorial Ceremony — marking its 25th anniversary — will take place at the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy in London.


Funding helps extradite sex offenders

Funds are available through the Attorney General’s Office to help sheriffs extradite unregistered sex offenders who have fled the state.

The program, funded by a U.S. Department of Justice grant, is called SORN NET, short for Sex Offender Registration Network Nationwide Extradition Team. It covers up to $2,000 in expenses per trip — including transportation, lodging, meals, and other allowable costs — when local authorities travel out of state to retrieve a sex offender who has failed to register.


From the Attorney General

A new study commissioned by my office puts solid numbers to a phenomenon that law enforcement officers and prosecutors have long known: A small group of repeat offenders is responsible for a large percentage of violent crime in our state.


From the Attorney General

As a prosecuting attorney, I learned early in my career that people facing mental health problems were cycling through our criminal justice system time and again, receiving jail or prison time rather than the treatment they needed. My colleague Ohio Supreme Court Justice Evelyn Lundberg Stratton saw the same thing years ago as a trial judge.
