2903.13 Assault.

(A) No person shall knowingly cause or attempt to cause physical harm to another or to another’s unborn.

(B) No person shall recklessly cause serious physical harm to another or to another’s unborn.

Assault can be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor in depending on a variety of circumstances. Those include: was there “serious physical harm”, or was there a “deadly weapon” used.

The crime of assault is a very serious crime in Cincinnati, Ohio. Assault, charged as a misdemeanor, is a misdemeanor of the 1st degree and is punishable by up to 6 MONTHS IN JAIL, fines, court costs, probation and you may even be ordered to complete an anger management class. As a felony, it can carry up to 8 YEARS IN PRISON!

Thus, here at The Wieczorek Law Firm we begin your case with our own separate assessment and investigation into the evidence.

We will look at whether there was actual physical harm or just a threat of physical harm. Was the threat conditional?  Did you act in self defense? There are a many different aspects of the case that must be analyzed.

Our goal is to complete a thorough assessment of the evidence in order to determine where the weaknesses in the State’s case lie. From there, we exploit those weaknesses to a level which is detrimental to the State’s case. At the same time, we are developing a theory of litigation to overcome the strengths.
