If you have been charged with sex battery in Ohio, it is important to hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer. A conviction for sexual battery can result in harsh penalties, including possible mandatory prison sentences, a criminal record, requirements to register as a sex offender and/or fines.
Although a conviction for this sex offense can result in severe penalties, many of the scenarios resulting in a sexual battery charge require a “knowledge” element. This is a subjective element to the offense, meaning it varies from situation to situation, and depends on the person’s personal perception, feelings or belief in each particular situation. Subjective elements are often very difficult for the prosecution to prove; therefore, it is imperative to hire a knowledgeable Columbus sexual battery defense attorney.
