Penalties Associated with Domestic Violence Accusations
Criminal domestic violence charges are often in the form of a domestic violence protection order (DVPO) violation or assault on another person. A DVPO is a civil order that prevents contact between a plaintiff and defendant. Generally, a DVPO also includes restrictions on the defendant such as a prohibition on possessing, receiving, or purchasing firearms. A violation of the terms of a DVPO can be either a misdemeanor carrying up to 60 days in jail or a felony with up to six months in prison.
Other criminal charges such as an assault on a female or harassment may affect the outcome of a pending civil domestic violence case. Even the first offense has the legal possibility of jail time. These cases are extremely serious, but with good legal representation, these consequences can be minimized and sometimes eliminated.
