Domestic violence of any kind is a very serious charge that can cost you your freedom. There is very little that is needed from a supposed victim for the law enforcement to have a valid enough case against you to be able to charge you with domestic assault. As long as there is a sign of an altercation, evidence of an injury and a statement from a witness, you may find yourself placed in handcuffs.
The moment you are arrested or know that you are under investigation, do not hesitate to contact Curcione Law and schedule a free case evaluation.
Penalties for domestic assault can vary depending on the injuries that were sustained by the individual and if this is your first offense or not. If this is your first assault case, you may spend up to 12 months in jail and pay a steep fine well over $2000. With each offense, such as second time and third time offenders, you can see a significant increase in penalties and may spend time in prison.
Whether this is your first or third offense, however, you will risk the penalty of restraining orders and court-mandated anger management courses. It is important that after an arrest you quickly retain the legal services our firm.
