Ohio Protective Orders are issued for many different purposes, but all are generally means of the same purpose – to protect an alleged victim from harassment and/or injury of a suspect. Types of protection orders in Ohio include: if the alleged perpetrator was guilty of violating the current protection order or a previous protection order or had two or more violations of threats, harassment or aggravation of the current alleged victim, the charge is laid to the fifth degree. A fifth-degree crime is punishable by 6 to 12 months in prison and a fine of $2,500. If the alleged perpetrator violates the protection order while committing a crime, he or she could expect a third degree charge with 1 to 5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. 9.
