Under Ohio law (Ohio Revised Code section 2903.13), the crime of Assault occurs when a person knowingly causes or attempts to cause physical harm to another or to another’s unborn. Assault also occurs where a person recklessly causes serious physical injury.
Generally Assault is a first degree misdemeanor (punishable by up to six months jail and a $1000 fine). Certain aggravating factors can bump a simple assault charge from a misdemeanor to a felony (if the other person is a law enforcement officer, for example).
