Providing service to others can be a challenging experience. Individuals and businesses often go to great lengths to provide service and meet customer demands. Many times, this is done while still attempting to meet the personal and financial needs of the individual or business. At times, these demands and needs can conflict, causing dissension and misunderstanding between the parties. In some instances, this can create the need for a criminal defense within the Ohio court system.

In one such case, an Ohio-based company was hired to build playgrounds for a variety of customers. These customers included several day care centers and churches. Unfortunately, something apparently prevented the company from completing these tasks, and charges have now been filed against the owner of the company.

According to the complaint, the accused failed to fulfill promises made to the customers as well as to pay for the materials and complete the contracted installations. Apparently, both customers and product suppliers have stepped forward stating concerns. Reports indicate that the accused, if convicted, could face up to 20 years in prison plus a $250,000 fine.

At this point, charges have been filed. As a result, the accused must now answer to the charges within an Ohio criminal court. Prior to doing so, he will want to work with an experienced criminal defense attorney in order to determine how to best answer these charges. Misunderstandings and changing needs can often cause problems between customers and providers. While these problems do not typically lead to criminal charges, it is possible that they will.
