Relentlessly Advocating on Your Behalf
Domestic violence is a very serious matter, and the state of Ohio has assigned serious penalties and consequences for those convicted of violent offenses. These penalties include a possible jail sentence of up to 180 days, a possible fine of up to $1000 for a first offense, probation and collateral consequences that may affect your right to possess firearms. If a person has a prior conviction the new domestic violence charge becomes a felony with additional penalties. If someone has accused you of domestic violence, now is the time to make sure you consult with a lawyer to know your rights.
