[ARCHIVED] Ohio Supreme Court Finds in State's Favor

Assistant Prosecutor and Child Support Enforcement Division Chief Christopher Murray recenty argued an important case before the Ohio Supreme Court.

On September 30, 2020, in a unanimous decision, the court found in Mr. Murray's favor. 

In State v. Brown the court ruled that the State could prosecute a Defendant for criminal non-support even though the child had been emancipated at the time the charges were filed. Since the child was not emancipated during the period of non-payment, which was several years, the Defendant was subject to criminal charges for failure to support his minor child.

Arguing a case before the State's highest court is no small task for any lawyer, and this is especially true during a pandemic. 

Thank you Chris for a great job!
