Over the past few years, Elyria’s rate of violent crime has remained steady, while theft and other nonviolent crimes happen with regularity. As with elsewhere in Ohio, Elyria is also home to significant drug activity, resulting in recent high-profile cocaine and heroin raids by police. If you have been arrested in Elyria or Lorain County, perhaps you have been accused of:
- Aggravated assault,
- Domestic violence,
- Drug trafficking,
- Gun offenses, or
- Robbery or another theft crime
Regardless of whether or not such accusations are true, Elyria’s law enforcement, prosecuting attorneys, and courts will use all of their considerable resources against you. A defense attorney is needed to protect your rights and make sure that you are treated fairly.
