What Qualifies as Domestic Violence?

These charges can involve an assault on a partner, roommate, spouse, or other family member. “Domestic violence” can involve a wide range of actions, including discharging a firearm, defacing marital property, harassment, stalking, violating a protective order, or verbal/emotional abuse. Regardless of the action, prosecutors take these allegations extremely seriously.

A Domestic Assault can be associated with the following:

  • Bodily Injury
  • Fear of imminent or bodily injury
  • Offensive or provocative physical contact

Class A & B Misdemeanors

If convicted, a domestic violence charge can result in a jail sentence, fines, and a mark on your permanent criminal record.

An Aggravated Domestic Assault can be associated with the following:

  • Serious bodily injury
  • Fear of imminent serious bodily injury

Class C Felony

If convicted, a domestic violence charge can result in a jail sentence, fines, and a mark on your permanent criminal record.

In addition to these penalties, you may also be ordered by a judge to take a batterer's intervention program. If convicted of domestic violence, you will not be allowed to own or possess a firearm.

Why You Need to Obtain Aggressive Legal Representation Immediately

Perhaps your charges arise out of an argument where minimal or no injuries occurred. Many times, police are given inaccurate reports (particularly in divorce cases) and they will always side with the alleged victim. Even if the victim decides to drop the charges against you, the District Attorney's office can still choose to prosecute the case. At Clarke Law Firm, our Murfreesboro criminal defense lawyer is committed to hearing your side of the story and protecting your rights, reputation, and future.
