Being charged with a felony is both serious and traumatic. The laws are complicated, the penalties are grave and the costs can be extraordinarily high. Time may seem to be working against you. In these times, you deserve an attorney who works for you. You will find that attorney at the Owens Law Office.

Robert M. Owens is a former Ohio state prosecutor. He uses his experiences from the other side of the aisle to help craft a defense that will stand up to scrutiny by even the most aggressive opposing counsel. As a Delaware, Ohio criminal defense lawyer, he can anticipate the prosecution’s strategies and prepare to thwart them.

Some common felony charges

A felony charge is much more severe than a misdemeanor. The penalties are stricter and costlier, and almost all felonies include prison sentences of more than a year. Some felonies in Ohio are punishable by the death penalty. Felony charges include:

  • Murder
  • Rape
  • Aggravated Assault and/or battery
  • Fraud
  • Drug manufacturing, sales or intention to distribute
  • Treason
  • Burglary
  • Kidnapping
  • Grand larceny
  • Perjury
  • Arson

Aggressively fighting the charges against you

Not every case is as clear-cut as it may appear. The circumstances of your particular case may reveal that even if a crime was committed, it was actually a misdemeanor, not a felony. They may reveal that the crime in question was not even committed. These gray areas may prove problematic for some Delaware, Ohio criminal defense lawyers. But at the Owens Law Office, we offer a comprehensive defense that includes:

  • Pre-filing. Your defense starts before the charges are even filed. We speak first with the police to obtain as much information as we can. From there we begin to build defense strategies to help you.
  • The pretrial conference. Your case may never reach a courtroom if the pretrial conference allows us to eliminate evidence. We’ll fight to have your case thrown out of court entirely, if possible.
  • Litigation. If your case goes to trial, we’ll fight tooth and nail on your behalf. We know how to choose (or eliminate) jurors, prepare you for opposing counsel and craft a narrative that creates reasonable doubt.

Lead attorney Robert M. Owens spent years prosecuting people for criminal charges. This gives him an advantage as a criminal defense lawyer in Delaware, Ohio: He knows exactly what to expect and makes sure you do, too.
