Domestic Violence Convictions
Consequences of a domestic violence charge can last a lifetime, including jail and prison sentences, fines, and mandatory classes. Many times, domestic violence charges are "wobblers", meaning that they can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony crime. Penalties can significantly vary according to the severity of the crime and different statutes.
However, in order for a conviction to occur, two qualifiers must be proved:
- The defendant willfully and intentionally inflicted bodily harm.
- The injury was inflicted on a current or former partner, spouse or child.
