“I was wrongly convicted of murder. I spent nearly 17 years in prison fighting my case. When I finally won a new trial, I chose Greg Robey to be a part of my defense team. He found an FBI agent who had worked on the case in the 1980s, along with critical pieces of evidence that we thought were long lost. After a long and very hard-fought trial, I was found Not Guilty of all charges. I owe my freedom to Greg Robey and my defense team.” -R.R., Ravenna, Ohio
Geauga County, home to the country’s second largest Amish population, is located only 30 miles outside of Cleveland. However, its culture and suburban setting do not protect it from the crime and corruption of the big city. On Friday, June 13, the Geauga County Sheriff’s Office announced that it had conducted perhaps the largest drug bust in the area in more than 38 years.
What sparked the investigation that took place on June 3 and eventually led to the arrest of four people remains unclear. Additional details regarding the case follow:
The four individuals in custody will likely face other charges in addition to aggravated possession of drugs. Whether you are arrested for a drug offense, firearm possession or other crime in Ohio, seek professional help as soon as possible.
