Domestic violence may consist of physical harm, threats or physiological abuse. Domestic violence may be of a sexual or economic nature. Both stalking and harassment constitute domestic violence. When domestic violence escalates into actual violent physical contact it usually results in assault, rape or even murder.
The legal consequences of domestic violence may be severe, depending on whether it is filed as a misdemeanor or a felony. A conviction may result in imprisonment, heavy fines, probation, rehabilitation or community service, as well as a 52-week anger management program.
The consequences may preclude you from contacting the alleged victim or re-entering your own home. If you have prior convictions for violence or if the violence is aggravated, this may increase the penalties.
