Penalties for Domestic Violence in Ohio
Most domestic violence charges begin as a misdemeanor. In some cases, they could become a felony if you have a certain previous criminal history already established. If you are in the military or serve as a police officer, a conviction of domestic violence will end your career. A domestic violence misdemeanor can be brought on by something as small as a scratch.
Penalties for misdemeanor charges include:
- A maximum of 6 months in jail
- Significant fines
- Costs of going to court
- A maximum of 5 years’ probation in addition to time in jail
In addition to these penalties, the convicted may never be able to possess a firearm, never be able to have the charge expunged, and may have to be subject to a civil protection order. The severity of domestic violence charges escalates according to the number of prior charges that a defendant has. A second charge of domestic violence is considered a felony. Whatever types of charges you face, we can help you.
