“I was charged with the murder of my best friend, and held on a $1 million dollar bond. My family got Greg Robey on the case and he immediately started fighting for me. He found a forensic pathologist and a firearms expert to help my case. After a long battle with the prosecutors, I was freed. I can honestly say that Greg Robey saved my life!” -R.W., Warren, Ohio

Arson Six years or 20 years, depending on the facts of the case
Assault One year, three years, or 20 years, depending on the facts of the case
Burglary 20 years
Disorderly conduct Six months or two years, depending on the facts of the case
Kidnapping 20 years
Voluntary manslaughter 20 years
Involuntary manslaughter 20 years
Murder No statute of limitations
Rape 20 years
Receiving stolen property One year or three years, depending on the facts of the case
