Consequences of a Domestic Abuse Conviction
When you make another household member fear for their safety, you can be charged with domestic violence, and it is not limited to family members with whom you share a residence. If you are accused of threatening or harming a significant other’s family member or a former parent-in-law, you can still be charged with this crime.
If convicted, you could face:
- Jail sentences of up to a year
- Probation for up to two years
- Requirement to attend domestic violence offender treatment programs
- Restraining orders barring you from contact with your loved ones
