Sexual Battery

Sexual battery can be charged from many different situations that involve a person making unsolicited sexual contact towards another person. Some of these situations are as follows:

  • One person coerces the other to have sexual contact
  • One person has sexual contact with another who is substantially impaired or unaware
  • Sexual contact between a minor and a person employed by an institution of higher education
  • Sexual contact between a person in custody of law or in a hospital or another institution when the offender has supervisory or disciplinary authority over the other person.
  • Sexual contact between a minor and his or her parent, legal guardian, or person in loco parentis

A conviction of sexual battery can result in a punishment of up to eight years in prison, as well as large fines and registration on the Ohio sex offender list.

Being charged with a sex crime can carry permanent consequences. If convicted, a sex crime can result in incarceration, as well as required registration as a sex offender in the state of Ohio. Anyone convicted of a sex crime must fight against a lifelong stigma, making it difficult to maintain employment, housing or permanent relationships.
