Our Case Results
STATE V. NEAL:
In a case that reached national and international news outlets, Attorney VanHo provided the defense for an Akron client who was facing kidnapping, felonious assault, and abduction charges. After considerable investigations, as well as negotiating with prosecutors, these charges were reduced to a misdemeanor. The client faced a small fine and a short probation.
STATE V. MCKENNEY:
A client in Cuyahoga County faced charges of kidnapping, attempted rape, and gross sexual imposition. Initially, the prosecutor wanted to pursue a mandatory life sentence, but Attorney VanHo’s investigations and advocacy led to the charges being lowered to a misdemeanor with a short probation sentence — no sex offender registration or jail time imposed.
STATE V. JONES:
In a case of national and international prominence, Attorney VanHo and the Ohio Innocence Project represented a client who had been convicted of murder and was under a life sentence. New DNA testing was brought to light, and a new trial was ordered. Further investigations poked holes in the government’s evidence, and the prosecutors dismissed the charges.
