Understanding Assault Under Ohio Law

Assault is a criminal offense involving the intentional harm or threat of harm to another person. In Ohio, assault can take various forms, ranging from simple assault to aggravated assault, with each carrying different legal implications and penalties.

Types of Assault Charges

  1. Simple Assault: This involves knowingly causing or attempting to cause physical harm to another person, or recklessly causing serious physical harm.
  2. Negligent Assault: Occurs when physical harm is caused through the negligent use of a deadly weapon.
  3. Felony Assault: This charge is applicable when someone seriously harms another person or attempts to do so with a deadly weapon.
  4. Aggravated Assault: Similar to felony assault but requires that the assault was conducted under sudden passion or rage.

Potential Penalties

The penalties for assault can vary significantly based on the nature of the offense:

  • Simple Assault: Typically classified as a misdemeanor, which can result in up to six months in jail and fines.
  • Felony Assault: A more severe charge, possibly resulting in several years of imprisonment and higher fines.
  • Aggravated Assault: Often considered a felony, leading to substantial prison time and severe financial penalties.
