Legal Consequences for Domestic Violence Crimes
Law enforcement takes these types of claims very seriously and may arrest an individual if the officer has probable cause that domestic violence has been committed – even if it was committed outside the presence of the officer.
A conviction of a domestic violence charge can result in jail or prison time, as well as require you to pay financial restitution to the victim, attend a domestic violence treatment program, and perform community work service.
Using a weapon, causing substantial injuries or threatening/injuring a minor can all result in harsher penalties. You may also face enhanced penalties if you have an existing criminal record.
