Stay Away Orders: Most cases with an alleged victim involved will have a stay away order issued as a condition of bond. This requires you to stay away from the alleged victim even if they contact you. This includes in person, phone, social media, and communication through a third party.
Domestic Violence by Threat: You can also be charged with Domestic Violence by Threat if you threaten a family or household member, but it is an M4 instead of an M1.
Intimate Partner Violence: This is a similar charge to Domestic Violence charge under the Columbus City Code that broadens the definition of household or family member to include other dating relationships.
Prosecuting Witness wants to Drop Charges: Lots of times in Domestic Violence and related offenses, the state’s main witness wants to drop the case. However, the State still prosecutes these cases at their discretion and often will try to prosecute you even without the alleged victim’s cooperation
