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!
