Can I be charged with contempt of court for not completing community service on a m1 that i did 180 days in jail on in ohio?
I was arrested in youngstown, ohio by the state highway patrol for driving under suspension. My license had a forfeiture suspension for unpaid fines, costs. I was sentenced to community control, 80 hours community service, and a 180 day suspended sentence. Violated probation for non-compliance and served 180 days in full. Approximately 6 months after my release i was arrested again on a warrant for the same charge. I was taken to the mahoning county justice center until i posted a 250 cash surety bond through a bondsman. When I went to court they told me I was charged with contempt of court for not completing the 80 hours of community service ordered, and i could be sentenced an additional 30 days in jail. How can i be punished past the max penalty allowed by ohio law?

Last appointment with my PO but still on probation for another month, will I get drug tested?
I was on basic probation for a non-drug related charge and ended up with community service and 6 months probation. I paid court costs and did my service a long time ago and just had my last appointment with my PO. She told me that this was my last appointment and she was going to close my case next month, and that I don't need to come in for her to do that either. I was never drug tested before as I've never given any reason to be, but can and will they still call me in to drug test me anytime before this last month is up?
You may or may not have to. I do not know (if I knew whether or not you will be drug screened by your PO then I'd...

What should I plea for failure to reinstate drivers license in Ohio, second court date
I was charged with failure to reinstate my drivers license in ohio, what should I plea? I went to my first court date and tried to plea no contest and the judge said he would put my plea in as not guilty and I should talk to an attorney, but didn't give me an option for a court appointed. I reinstated and got another drivers license. what should I plea? I don't want to plea guilty and get nailed or plea no contest again and piss the judge off again, or not guilty and get another court date. Or is there a plea to make to set another court date so I can hire a layer if that's my best option? Without an attorney, am I able to speak with the prosecutor before the hearings start to clear things up beforehand? Any advise would be great

How, if possible, could my name, address, or personal information obtained from the officers' investigation be used negatively?
Ok so last night I was with a few friends driving around playing Pokémon Go. We got pulled over and they searched our person and the vehicle. The only evidence they recovered was a crown royal draw-string bag with a bag of marijuana contained inside, which belonged to the driver of the vehicle. After the officers finished their search, they took all four of our cell phone numbers and social security numbers to verify identity. Long story short, the only person of the four of us that was charged with a minor misdemeanor possession of marijuana was the driver. Basically my question is, will this information be published in a newspaper or otherwise be made available to the public, including my name or address, without my knowledge or consent even though I was not charged with a criminal offense?
There may be mention of you in a police report. Those are public record, but personal information is typically redacted....
