Domestic Violence in California
There are many types of domestic violence offenses, including:
- Domestic battery
- Corporal injury to a spouse or intimate partner you live with (“inhabitant”)
- Child abuse
- Child neglect
- Child endangerment
- Elder abuse
- Criminal threats
- Damaging a phone line
- Aggravated trespass
- Revenge porn
- Harmful internet posts
Corporal injury to a spouse or inhabitant is always a felony charge in California, and the rest of the offenses might be charged as misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the specific allegations. Either way, jail time is a real possibility for domestic violence convictions, so you want a very real defense.
In addition, domestic violence cases are often accompanied by protective order cases. You want a lawyer who can not only defend your case in criminal court but also defend against a wrongful protective order in civil court.
