What happens is someone with pending assault charges in Ohio? 1 Answers as of May 24, 2011

I recently filed assault charges on my ex-boyfriend. I also filed for a protection order that hasn't been served yet. The assault charges are still pending but he has left the state. I know that if the prosecutor decides to charge him and he doesn't appear for court they will issue a bench warrant. My question is since he is in another state, what do I do now? If I informed the courts of where he might be located will they tell the local authorities the situation and keep a look out for him?

For a misdemeanor assault, they likely will not use too many resources to track him down. If it is a felony, they are typically more inclined to use resources.
