Extortion Tailoring Your Defense in a System That's Designed to Work Against You

Extortion Defense Lawyers in Cleveland, OH

Federal Extortion Statute

Using threats to obtain money, property, or cause a person to do something is a violation of Ohio's extortion statute (O.R.C. 2905.11). Prosecutors can charge you if you threaten a person with violence or threaten to reveal information about them that can cause them harm. Menacing to achieve an end is also considered a form of extortion. Extortion is a third degree felony with the potential penalty of prison time of up to five years.

Penalties for Extortion in Ohio

Extortion is the use of threats to obtain something from another and is often tied to financial crimes. By itself, extortion is a third degree felony. When extortion is tied into other charges, you may be looking at a complicated case that will be prosecuted under organized crime statutes, where the terms of imprisonment and fines are extreme.

Whatever the scale of your charges, a felony record in Cleveland will lock you out of jobs, educational opportunities, housing, and more. You have to fight back against charges like extortion, and your best hope of success comes when you work with an experienced Cleveland extortion attorney.
