D.H. was under the supervision of the Ohio Adult Parole Authority after serving three years in a state penitentiary for a conviction of Aggravated Robbery. On or about March 25, 2014, D.H. was charged with a parole violation on the basis that he possessed a firearm. If he was found to be in violation of his parole, D.H. could have served a sanction of up to 270 days of incarceration. On March 13, 2014, D.H. was in a vehicle that was pulled over by police officers who searched the vehicle and found a loaded firearm. D.H. was not allowed to be around firearms.

As a result, D.H. was immediately arrested and was given a parole violation sanction and was transported to the Correction Reception Center in Orient, Ohio, where he awaited his hearing. D.H. hired Attorney Antony Abboud who attended his parole violation hearing at the Correction Reception Center on April 8, 2014. Attorney Abboud was able to convince the hearing officer that D.H. did not commit a violation because he did not have knowledge that there was a firearm in the vehicle. As a result, he was found not guilty of the violation and was released from prison.
