Nobody Talks, Everybody Walks. Ohio criminal defense lawyer with nearly 40 years experience

“I was wrongly convicted of murder. I spent nearly 17 years in prison fighting my case. When I finally won a new trial, I chose Greg Robey to be a part of my defense team. He found an FBI agent who had worked on the case in the 1980s, along with critical pieces of evidence that we thought were long lost. After a long and very hard-fought trial, I was found Not Guilty of all charges. I owe my freedom to Greg Robey and my defense team.” -R.R., Ravenna, Ohio

Sexual assault encompasses a number of sex crimes

When handling a case, a sexual assault defense attorney in Ohio defends clients against any of the following sexual assault allegations:

  • Rape. Rape is any penetration, even if slight, where force is threatened or used and the sexual activity is against the person's will.
  • Sexual battery. Sexual battery is a second- or third-degree felony and involves sexual conduct when an individual:
    • Forces the alleged victim
    • Is the alleged victim's parent, guardian, or custodian
    • Has supervisory or disciplinary authority over the alleged victim, as a patient in a hospital or mental institution
    • Is a teacher, administrator, coach, or other school or higher education official
    • Is a cleric or peace officer
  • Sexual battery also occurs when the alleged victim is:

    • Substantially impaired
    • Unaware that the act is being committed
    • Mistaking the person as his/her spouse
    • A minor
  • Importuning. Importuning involves soliciting sexual activity with another person, which can be charged as a fifth-, fourth-, third-, or second-degree felony, depending on whether it is a repeated offense or whether it involved a child.
  • Voyeurism. Voyeurism involves secretly eavesdropping or spying on someone else for sexual arousal or gratification and may involve videotaping, photographing or recording another person in a state of nudity. Charges range from a third-degree misdemeanor to a fifth-degree felony, depending on circumstances involved.
  • Public indecency. Public indecency involves exposing private parts for purposes of sexual arousal or engaging in sexual activity or masturbation in public. This crime is a fourth-degree misdemeanor unless the person has previous convictions, which increase the misdemeanor degree.
  • Felonious assault. Felonious assault involves causing serious physical harm and, in terms of sexual conduct, can include a known HIV carrier engaging in sexual conduct with another person without first informing about his or her HIV status. Felonious assault is a second-degree felony.
