You can invoke your “upon request” rights by contacting the appropriate prosecutor’s office, court and jail.
As a victim, you may also be eligible for assistance from the Ohio Crime Victim Compensation Program if you were the victim of assault, domestic violence, impaired driving or a bite from a dog running at large. Even though you must seek restitution as part of the court case if one is pending, the compensation program may assist you with the costs of medical and dental bills, relocation, crime scene cleanup and mental health counseling . The program does not pay for loss due to strictly economic crimes such as theft or property damage. See the prosecutor’s office for more info.
