Assault is the act of recklessly or knowingly causing physical harm to another. Charges range from misdemeanors to high level felonies with all allegations likely to result in arrest.
Both misdemeanor and felony assault charges can result in high bonds, loss of jobs, and jail or prison. They are not eligible to be sealed under Ohio law, and a violent crime conviction on your record can make it difficult to get jobs and secure a place to live.
Assault cases open with a warrant. Find out if you have a warrant in Franklin County here:
