What likely is the charge for an M1 domestic violence case in Ohio? 1 Answers as of January 10, 2013

In Ohio, if a defendant in a Domestic Violence M1 case can prove there was no intent to harm the victim, and the victim states they’d like charges dropped, would a sentencing take place? The altercation was between my friend and his mother. She was saying vicious things about his girlfriend who has cancer, which provoked him. Though he broke a personal possession of hers, he tried to remove himself from the situation by stalling in the middle of the steps. She wouldn't let him get past. She fell over herself but is claiming the defendant pushed her. She has been shown to abuse her children in the past shown in records. The defendant has never had a history of acting violent and has never been in trouble with the law except as a juvenile when 15. What would the outcome be?

It depends on lots of factors. Worst case is 6 months in jail.
