Accused of Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence refers to a violent crime against a family member, fiancé, boyfriend, girlfriend or domestic partner. It includes threatening a person with bodily harm, physical contact with a person against their wishes and in an offense manner, and committing a violent act that causes injury. Many assault charges are the result of accusations of domestic violence. A first-time domestic violence offense will usually be charged as a Class C misdemeanor. A person with a prior domestic violence history, including a case that resulted in deferred adjudication, could be facing felony charges for a second offense. A person found guilty of domestic violence assault will not only lose the right to possess a firearm, the conviction can never be sealed or expunged.
