I’ve been charged with Domestic Abuse, now what?

The charge “domestic abuse” can involve an array of offenses, including assault, harassment, stalking, and rape. Not only does Ohio establish fines and prison sentences, but the social stigma can damage your career, reputation, and relationships.

Frequently, defendants are unfairly charged with domestic violence after a divorce or custody dispute becomes tense.
