Los Angeles Spousal Abuse Attorney

Criminal Lawyers for Domestic Violence Charges

Domestic violence cases are some of the most emotional to prosecute and defend, as they often involve more than a simple accusation. There are often serious relational issues, previous accusations and more. If a child is involved, it makes the criminal case all the more complicated. Judges, jury members, police and prosecutors often judge anyone accused of spousal abuse as guilty even before any evidence is collected. There are specific laws in California governing domestic violence - California Penal Code 273.5. It also makes any "traumatic" bodily injury a crime, whether internal or external. It defines domestic violence as crimes involving spouses, former spouses, cohabitating couples and former cohabiting couples.

The penalties for these crimes are serious and should not be over-looked. Conviction of misdemeanor spousal abuse includes:

  • Up to one year in county jail
  • Fines of up to $6,000
  • Reimbursement of the victim's medical expenses
  • Restraining orders
  • Counseling
  • Community Service

Being convicted of a felony spousal abuse crime includes:

  • Up to five years in state prison
  • Additional jail time if the victim suffers great bodily harm
  • A strike in California's Three Strikes Laws
  • Probation
  • Restraining orders, community service and other monitoring programs
