DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

It is the crime of inflicting physical or emotional injury on a spouse or child.

The law defines domestic violence as certain kinds of abuse directed toward a spouse or former spouse, cohabitant or former cohabitant, or a person with whom the abuser has had a "dating or engagement relationship," or with whom the abuser has had a child. It is a type of violence that cuts across all cultures, ethnic backgrounds, education levels, and income brackets. It impacts homosexuals as often as heterosexuals. It occurs among teenagers as well as senior citizens.

Domestic violence is behavior driven by a need to control. It can range from threats, annoying telephone calls and stalking (such as following the victim to and from work, and threatening the victim), to unwanted sexual touching and hitting. It also can be defined as one spouse destroying the other's personal property

The term child abuse can denote the use of inordinate physical violence or verbal abuse; the failure to furnish proper shelter, nourishment, medical treatment, or emotional support; incest, rape, or other instances of sexual molestation; and the making of child pornography. It can have serious consequences for the victim and is a widespread but underreported phenomenon. At least 500,000 children are physically abused in the U.S. each year; many more are emotionally abused and neglected. In many cases, the abuser suffered abuse as a child. When abuse results in death, evidence of child abuse or battered-child syndrome (e.g., broken bones and lesions, either healed or active) is often used to establish that death was not accidental.

If you or someone you know is being accused of domestic violence, you or that person may be potentially facing:

  1. Incarceration
  2. Probation
  3. Parole
  4. Court enforced counseling (e.g. anger management classes)
  5. Other sentences and/or fines
The outcome of your case will depend not only on the legal ability of your attorney but also on external factors such us your criminal record (prior convictions), current criminal status (parole or probation), and the jury feelings and thoughts towards these types of crimes among many others.

On the other hand, important factors such as insufficient evidence or claiming insanity might be part of an effective criminal defense strategy.
