Understanding Ohio Assault & Battery Laws

In Ohio, assault laws cover both assault and battery charges. While these are similar offenses, there are several key differences between the two: “assault” involves actually harming or attempting to harm another person (including an unborn child), whereas “battery” involves intentionally or negligently causing bodily injury or unwanted physical contact.

Assault in Ohio is further broken down into several categories:

  • Simple Assault: Intentionally trying to cause or actually causing bodily harm to another person/unborn child or recklessly causing bodily harm to another person/unborn child
  • Negligent Assault: Negligently causing bodily injury/harm to another person with a deadly weapon (such as a firearm)
  • Aggravated Assault: Causing “severe” physical injury/harm to another person/unborn child or causing or attempting to cause “severe” physical injury/harm with the use of a deadly weapon and when “under the influence of sudden passion or in a sudden fit of rage”

Furthermore, assault charges in Ohio can be prosecuted as either misdemeanors or felonies, with penalties ranging according to the type of charge and the severity of the alleged crime.
