Domestic Violence Prosecutor’s Policies

Ohio Policy in Domestic Violence Cases

If you are facing domestic violence charges, it is important to know how the criminal justice system handles these cases. It is important that you know what to expect during the process. Ohio law is very tough when it comes to domestic violence. Our state takes a near zero-tolerance approach to these cases. When police respond to a domestic violence call, there is a high probability that someone is going to jail.

Prosecutors do not dismiss domestic violence cases. They aggressively pursue charges against the accused in every instance. Even if the alleged victim does not want to prosecute and recants the allegation, the prosecution will still move forward with the case. In situations like these, it is critical that you have an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side who will fight to fully protect your rights.
