The California Penal Code, including Section 273.5, makes Domestic Violence a crime. Victims can include your spouse, domestic partner, your lover, and your grandparents or children. Domestic Violence includes unlawful physical force and/or verbal abuse, accompanied with the intent to harm the spouse, domestic partner, lover, grandparents, and children. Domestic Violence includes sexual abuse, intimidation, and threats.
A domestic violence charge can be either a misdemeanor or felony, and can subject the defendant to stiff court penalties, including, but not limited to, jail incarceration, a restraining order, probation, a steep fine, a year of domestic violence counseling, restitution, and community service.
In addition, a domestic violence conviction will seriously tarnish the offender’s reputation in the community, and could damage relations between the defendant and victim(s). Moreover, the defendant could lose his job, and his right to own, use, or possess a firearm.
