Being charged with a domestic violence offense serious and can affect the rest of your life if you are convicted. Domestic violence is a classification that is attached to an underlying crime, such as assault, harassment, trespassing, false imprisonment, criminal mischief, stalking, or obstruction a telephone service. When the alleged victim and the accused are involved in an “intimate relationship” or have been in the past, virtually any criminal offense can be classified as domestic violence.
A domestic violence charge is also a sentence enhancer, meaning that it is the description of the circumstances under which another offense was committed that causes the sentence of that underlying offense to become harsher.
