Violent Crimes

Assault and Violent Crimes in Ohio

Like any other criminal charge involving allegations of violence or threats of violence, assault charges are pursued aggressively by prosecutors and can result in significant criminal penalties. What people often do not consider, however, is the collateral consequences of an assault conviction that may arise after the conclusion of a criminal case.

For example, a mother or father involved in a custody battle who has an assault conviction may have that conviction used against them by their spouse who is seeking sole custody. Another common problem is employment. No employer wants to employ someone who may be a hazard to other employees and possibly expose the company to a lawsuit for negligent hiring practices.

Therefore, it is critical for people charged with a violent crime to retain competent legal counsel who can advise them of their rights, provide a vigorous defense and work diligently to minimize exposure to adverse consequences.
