What is the ohio statute of limitations for domestic violence

Asked about 5 years ago - Chillicothe, OH

I was physically abused by my husband 2yrs ago but did not file charges due to not wanting our son to be exposed to the situation. We are now separated & I would like to include the incident in the divorce & press charges if possible. It was not the first incident of domestic violence. What is the statute of limitations in Ohio.
