Domestic Crimes are those which are committed against family or household members. The Lucas County Prosecutors Domestic Crimes Unit understands the relationship complexities in domestic crime cases. Every effort is made to connect the victim(s) with proper resources empowering them with education and options. When victims decide independently to include the criminal justice system, there is a greater likelihood of stopping the abuse and resuming safe, healthy relationships. Ignoring the consequences of domestic crimes only ensures that the cycle of violence will continue.
This office is committed to bringing domestic crime perpetrators to justice to protect the victim(s) and the public. The Lucas County Prosecutors Office Domestic Crimes Unit will proceed with prosecution even when victims are unable or unwilling to cooperate with the investigation by relying on evidence-based prosecution techniques.
