New puppy mill law for Ohio

I have family members who are very involved in dog law in Ohio.  I'll have more on this law in the new year.
New puppy mill law

Hey kid, your fake ID could get you 3 years in prison

From the "law never ceases to amaze me" file comes this little tidbit: your fake ID could get you a third degree felony in Ohio.

Here is what I read while doing some research:

R.C. 2913.42 Tampering with records. (A) No person, knowing the person has no privilege to do so, and with purpose to defraud or knowing that the person is facilitating a fraud, shall do any of the following:
(1) Falsify, destroy, remove, remove, conceal, alter, deface, or mutilate any writing, computer software, data, or record;
(2) Utter any writing or record, knowing it to have been tampered with as provided in division (A)(1) of this section.
(B) Whoever violates this section is guilty of tampering with records.

As I was on my way in, I saw representatives from every television station. I also think I spotted an Enquirer reporter. They were there for a defendant named Britney Roll Mayes. More importantly, they were there for the little girl who she is accused of killing: Avery Lee Hobbs. The girl was her daughter. Mayes had previously lost custody of the girl, been incarcerated for child endangering.

The big news of the morning was the fact that Mayes is now seven months pregnant with another child.

I used to work in local news at WKRC-TV, Channel 12. I spoke briefly to one of my favorite local news photographers about the case. News moves quicker than ever. We could only speak briefly because all the channels needed to post to social media about the revelation that the defendant was pregnant. They had to do this quickly - because local news i…
