Assault under Ohio Law
You can be charged with assault, which may be considered a felony or misdemeanor in Ohio, if you have been accused of hitting or striking someone. A simple assault is considered a first degree misdemeanor while a felonious assault is considered a second degree felony. In the State of Ohio you may also be charged with negligent assault (a third degree misdemeanor) or aggravated assault (a fourth degree felony). There are conflicting stories in almost all cases of assault.
To establish and prove that reasonable doubt exists in your assault matter, a Cleveland Assault Lawyer will conduct a thorough review. Assault offenses can have significant consequences such as terms of imprisonment, community control sanctions (probation) and restitution for all medical bills of the victim.
Our knowledgeable Assault Lawyers will dig deep into your case by taking statements of all witnesses and by reviewing all available evidence.
Self defense or acting in defense of another person are defenses to a charge of assault. A defendant has the burden to prove such a defense. Our lawyers are also well versed in Ohio's Castle Doctrine, which provides certain additional defenses to assault charges when a person is charged with a violent oriented crime during an incident while in their home or motor vehicle.
