Hocking County Criminal Defense Attorney

As an experienced Hocking County criminal defense attorney, John P. M. Rutan will study the details of the case against you to try and find weaknesses that we can exploit. Once identified, weaknesses will be brought to the attention of the prosecution who may propose to offer a plea to lesser charges to avoid the costs and publicity of a trial. We will sit down with you to explain, in easy to understand, layman’s terms, what your options are and give you our recommendations. Then and only then will you make a decision as to how we are to proceed, taking the offer from the prosecution, or declining and proceeding to trial.
