In Ohio, the police are required to take decisive action if there is a possibility that a person is in harm’s way. Ohio has a “preferred arrest” policy in domestic violence cases. This means that if the police respond to a domestic dispute at your house, in all likelihood, someone is going to spend the night in jail.
The consequences for a conviction in these cases can be extremely severe and can create a criminal record that could follow you for the rest of your life.
