"Well, aren't you just the cleanest pig in the pen?"That was my father's reaction when I relayed to him what I considered to be a fine piece of attorney-ing.  I was a new lawyer assigned a high-profile home invasion robbery case.  The newspaper detailed that my client faced decades behind bars if convicted.After plea negotiations with the prosecuting attorney I was able to secure a plea to one felony count and an agreed sentence of "only" five years in prison.  I was proud of the work I'd done and felt that my client was lucky to have me.  I  also...

Drink Like Dionysus

If you could wander around the Aegean coast around 700 B.C. you would find an abundance of alcohol; wine specifically.  The libation was a mainstay of Hellenistic society and it was used to honor the gods, as currency, as medicine, as a thirst-quencher (and to get drunk).  In fact, using alcohol was considered a civic duty in Athens.  At great gatherings and feasts officials, known as oinoptai made sure that the wine was distributed fairly.  By showing the citizens that government could be trusted with something as important as wine, the Greeks ushered in demokratia or "people power" and entered...

Will I Be Required To Use Restricted Plates (A.K.A Party Plates)?

When will you be required to use restricted plates?If you thought that public shaming was a barbaric practice relegated to the distant past, you have not been driving through Ohio.  Ohio was the first state in the country to adopt a form of public humiliation by adopting special license plates (called restricted plates) for drunk driving offenders.  Use of the “scarlet letter” restricted plates became mandatory in 2004. O.R.C. 4507.02(F)(2) and 4503.231.  These bright yellow restricted plates with prominent red lettering (often referred to as "party plates") are an indelible record of your offense and will not be easily forgotten...
