Understanding Coercion Charges in Ohio (O.R.C. 2905.12)

When an individual uses threats or unlawful leverage to force a person to take certain actions, it can be considered coercion.

  • In Ohio, O.R.C. 2905.12 dictates that coercion can include threatening to:
  • Commit a criminal offense
  • Expose personal secretes
  • Speak ill of / slander a person

All of these actions must be taken in order to influence the person's actions in some way counter to what their personal choice would have been.

Ohio Penalties for Coercion

Coercion is considered a second-degree misdemeanor that carries up to 90 days in jail. This crime is often not so simple, however, as prosecutors must often prove coercion occurred in order to tie in other more serious charges.

If you are charged with coercion in addition to other criminal offenses, you could be facing a variety of penalties ranging from time in jail, fines, and more. It is very rare that coercion is the only charge filed against an individual, which means you are likely to face indictment for crimes such as extortion, organized crimes, and more.

At our firm, the Cincinnati coercion lawyers stand ready to advocate on your behalf. We stand up for the legal rights of our clients and diligently defend their best interests.
