Broadly defined, domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behaviors by one or both partners in an intimate relationship. Domestic violence charges take on many forms, including physical aggression, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, or intimidation.

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.
