Penalties for Domestic Violence
Most counties in California impose a minimum 30-day sentence in jail, even for a first-time misdemeanor. In many cases, the judge will even require the defendant to attend a 52-week class for domestic batterers. The penalties you may face if convicted of domestic violence will vary based on a variety of factors, including:
- Seriousness of injuries
- Existence of a deadly weapon
- Criminal record of defendant
Another negative effect of a domestic violence conviction is that it is placed on one's permanent criminal record. If you are faced with the possibility of a domestic violence conviction, you should obtain the strong legal defense that our firm offers.
