Learning that your child has been arrested and charged with a serious crime can be a devastating experience. Perhaps you wonder if the allegations are true. Or, maybe you blame yourself, wondering where you went so wrong that your child would be in a situation where he or she would even be suspected of illegal activity. You are not alone, as many other parents in Ohio and beyond have faced similar circumstances in the past. In such situations, it is of paramount importance to gain some idea of the process that lies ahead; especially if the case is being transferred to a criminal court.
