Crimes You May Be Charged With In Ohio
- Robbery – Taking another person’s property from their possession or against their will through the use of force or inciting fear is considered robbery. The use of force could entail the use of a deadly weapon, which is any kind of weapon that is capable of causing death such as a knife, hand grenade, or gun. A robbery conviction in Ohio typically results in harsh, unforgiving penalties and consequences.
- Burglary – If you intend to commit a crime and trespass into some kind of building, structure, or home, you may be charged with burglary. Burglary is different than other criminal charges like robbery, criminal trespass, and grand theft in that the offender does not have to participate in committing a crime inside a building to be charged. A burglary is prosecuted as a felony in Ohio.

There are a number of circumstances that specifically comprise the act of criminal trespass in Ohio.
