Facing a criminal charge is an undeniably stressful event that requires your careful attention. The consequences of a conviction are too great to ignore, and because protecting your future is paramount, consulting with an experienced Dayton criminal defense attorney should be one of the first steps you take in the process of protecting your legal rights – in pursuit of your case’s best possible outcome.
The most common criminal charges fall into the following categories:
A charge of assault relates to causing or attempting to cause someone else harm. Battery, on the other hand, is the act of either intentionally or negligently causing someone else to experience offensive physical contact or physical injury. Assault charges break down into simple and aggravated categories, and if the charge is aggravated (by some factor that elevates the seriousness of the alleged crime), it will very likely be classified as a felony.
Ohio has moved away from the terms DUI and DWI and now uses OVI (operating a vehicle under the influence). The legal limit in Ohio is 0.08 percent blood alcohol concentration (BAC), but if you are deemed to be visibly intoxicated by either alcohol or a controlled substance, a charge can be forthcoming. The consequences of an OVI conviction are considerable and can affect all the following:
In Ohio, burglary refers to unlawfully entering a home, business, or another structure with the intention of committing a crime (whether or not the crime is actually committed). Burglary does not require breaking and entering – simply entering through an unlocked door or a window that’s been left open will suffice. This element of trespassing, however, is necessary. The burglary charge can be elevated to aggravated burglary if someone else is harmed (or experiences the threat of harm) in the process of the crime’s commission or if the accused has a deadly weapon on him or her.
In Ohio, sexual assault charges break down into rape and sexual battery charges. Rape refers to any form of unwanted sexual conduct (without the victim’s consent) that is typically accomplished through force, the threat of force, or intimidation. Sexual battery charges, on the other hand, typically relate to situations in which the victim is at a power disadvantage, including students, prisoners, patients in hospitals or mental health facilities, residents of nursing homes, and more.

I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my case. From the first time I met with my team to our last interaction, I always felt like I wasn't a number or a case, I was a person. The whole team was professional, responsive to my calls and concerns, and fought for the outcome I deserved. They even sent me an Ele cupcake for my birthday. I recommend this firm to everyone I know and will return if I ever need services in the future!
I am giving this firm a five-star rating for two reasons. First is the professional way in which I was treated. Every person I spoke with at this firm was professional and extremely courteous. I felt as though I was being treated as a natural person and NOT just a client. In many professional settings, clients are treated as such clients. Therefore they are held at arm's length. This gives off the impression a client is just a number, and there is a coldness and sterility to the service. I was NOT treated in this manner at the Vannoy Firm.…
Anthony VanNoy is an absolutely top-notch attorney. From start to finish, my case was handled with empathy, efficiency, and utter professionalism. The outcome was better than I'd dared to hope for and I cannot recommend him or his firm highly enough.
I first want to thank the staff and the company itself I work with Brittany and Patricia and it was so smooth on my end they took care of everything. They had no problem working with me even when I live the incident happened in a different state. Very very professional in my eyes and my family’s.
Keara Dever took the initiative to advocate for me in my very difficult situation. When no one else would listen to me, she did. She was very supportive and understanding and I am very appreciative for her services. She went above and beyond what I would have ever expected. Thank you so much Mrs. Dever. And by the way, she is AWESOME!!! Carl. M
