Ohio Criminal Laws

Ohio's criminal statutes identify a wide range of conduct considered illegal, such as theft or murder, made punishable by fines, imprisonment, and other sanctions. Criminal laws and sanctions in Ohio are similar to those of other states, but the Buck Eye State is unique in a number of ways, such as its tough penalties for drug offenses and a complicated sentencing structure. This section covers a wide variety of Ohio criminal laws, including statutes prohibiting assault and batter, child pornography, domestic violence, and marijuana possession. Speak with a Ohio criminal law attorney if you have additional questions or need legal representation.
