Felony Domestic Violence Charges

Miami Criminal Defense Attorney

Domestic violence involves an intimate partner or family member attempting to control the actions of another by way of threats, intimidation, isolation, abuse, or physical violence. Domestic violence can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on several factors. These can include the seriousness of the offense and the extent of the injury (physical and emotional) suffered by the victim. While misdemeanor domestic violence may only result in a fine, mandatory counseling sessions, or a short jail term, felony domestic violence can see a defendant punished with significant time spent in prison.
