Domestic Violence

A domestic violence case is a special type of misdemeanor cases in which both the defendant and the complainant are part of the same family unit. This includes actual blood relatives, spouses, past/present romantic partners, and even roommates. The key factor is a shared living arrangement and/or a close personal relationship. Simple assault, stalking, destruction of property, threats and various misdemeanor sex offenses are all included under the umbrella of domestic violence. This variety makes domestic violence a complicated offense, as every indictment carries a unique mixture of charges, relationships and evidence.
