Attorney Jon Saia was asked to speak at the Ohio State Bar AssociationCriminal Advocacy Seminar last Thursday, September 4 th. The Criminal Advocacy Seminar was designed to help defense attorneys sharpen their trial advocacy skills. The seminar took place in Columbus and was broadcast at remote locations across Ohio.
Attorney Saia presented on the top of plea bargains at the seminar. A plea bargain may be presented to a person charged with a crime and is often used in order to save time and money for everyone involved. Under a plea bargain, the defendant pleads guilty to certain aspects of a charge before a trial can take place, and generally receives reduced sentencing for his or her crime.
Attorney Saia was one of a number of experienced Ohio lawyers who lectured at the seminar. In addition to Plea Bargains, the course covered such topics as Voir Dire, Motion Practice, Direct and Cross Examinations, Evidentiary Issues at Trial, and Preserving the Record and Strategies for Appeal.
