Domestic Violence Cases

Domestic violence cases are similar to other cases, like DUI cases, in that they carry some special sentences. One thing most people do not understand is that there is no actual specific “domestic battery” crime. Instead, charges such as battery (which carries first degree misdemeanor penalties) are brought against the perpetrator, with special classifications such as Domestic Violence Battery, which then in turn may qualify for special treatment under the law.
There are a variety of charges, including aforementioned battery, which can qualify as examples of domestic abuse. They include keeping a partner from contacting family and friends, withholding money, stopping a partner from getting a job, actual or threatened physical harm, sexual assault, stalking and intimidation. Although the emotional, psychological and financial abuse aspects are not criminal behaviors, they can lead to criminal behaviors, like hitting, pushing, shoving, and sexual abuse, like unwanted or forced sexual activity, as well as stalking.
