Retrial Starts in Drowning Death

Retrial Starts in Drowning Death

An Ohio man accused of drowning his wife in their bathtub almost two years ago faced retrial last month as jury selection marked the start of 29-year-old Ryan Widmer's ordeal. Widmer is accused of killing his wife, 24-year-old Sarah Widmer, at the couple's home in Hamilton Township in southwest Ohio in August 2008.

Originally convicted in April 2009 of killing his wife, Widmer's conviction was set aside by a judge after allegations of juror misconduct during deliberations. Widmer has been free on bond while awaiting his retrial.

Widmer was originally sentenced to 15 years to life in prison after his conviction in the first trial, although he has maintained his innocence, reportedly stating he loved his wife and would never hurt her.

Whatever the outcome of the trial, the family of Sarah Widmer needs closure in this case. It is essential that the family has a guiding hand.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
