Here is the screen shot of what they gave her.

Thanks for your follow up.

It seems that your daughter is being charged with unlawfully soliciting business

She needs to attend court and would be better represented by an attorney if she is going to dispute this charge.

The maximum penalty is 60 days imprisonment for a misdemeanor grade 3 but more likely is a fine or probation but a plea bargain is possible.

(A) Except as provided in section 2929.22 or 2929.23 of the Revised Code or division (E) or (F) of this section and unless another term is required or authorized pursuant to law, if the sentencing court imposing a sentence upon an offender for a misdemeanor elects or is required to impose a jail term on the offender pursuant to this chapter, the court shall impose a definite jail term that shall be one of the following:

(1) For a misdemeanor of the first degree, not more than one hundred eighty days;

(2) For a misdemeanor of the second degree, not more than ninety days;

(3) For a misdemeanor of the third degree, not more than sixty days;

(4) For a misdemeanor of the fourth degree, not more than thirty days.

(B)"

If she did not have a permit when entering a business or home for solicitation she would have violated the city ordinance.

If the company represented to her that they had a permit to solicit then she may be entitled to dismissal of the charges and the company would be the proper defendant; her attorney could seek dismissal on this basis or put this defense forward at the hearing.

FIVE STARS or your rating is much appreciated in this regard.

Thanks
