Probation & Programs

The Court’s community control programs are considered to be among Ohio’s most innovative. If you are found guilty of a traffic or criminal misdemeanor, and part of your sentence includes probation, you will be assigned to one of the Court’s Community Control Officers.

These programs ensure that defendants are adhering to their court orders (AA, anger management counseling, parenting classes, etc.) and in some cases can allow defendants to avoid jail time.

Getting Your Record Sealed
A criminal record may be sealed so that it is not available to the public. The statutes relating to sealing of records are found in Section 2953 of the Ohio Revised Code. While it is believed the following information is accurate, you should consult an Ohio attorney to help you with the sealing process.
