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. However, people often do not consider the collateral consequences of an assault conviction that may arise after the conclusion of a criminal case.
A Lasting Effect Of A Violent Act
For example, a mother or father involved in a custody battle who has an assault conviction may have that conviction used against them by a spouse seeking sole custody. Another common problem is employment. No employer wants to hire 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 violent crimes to retain experienced legal counsel to advise them of their rights, provide a vigorous defense and work diligently to minimize exposure to adverse consequences.
