Domestic Violence In California

Domestic violence is abuse, violence or the threat of violence among children, family members, people who live together and people in close personal relationships. Domestic violence can include:

  • Physical assault
  • Threats
  • Intimidation
  • Stalking
  • Harassment
  • Verbal abuse
  • Sexual abuse

Domestic violence can be charged as a felony or misdemeanor, depending on the circumstances of the alleged violence. If there is a serious injury to the alleged victim the charge can be a strike offense and the consequence a term in state prison. However, even if there is little or no injury, you can still be prosecuted with a misdemeanor and face county jail, fines, mandatory counseling and ordered to stay away from your family.
