Century City Domestic Violence Lawyer
Criminal Defense Attorney in Sherman Oaks
Domestic violence and abuse crimes can be extremely traumatic, and you
could face serious penalties upon conviction if you are charged with this
crime. A domestic relationship can include any of the following:
- Roommates / housemates
- Current or former spouses
- Current or former dating couples
- Couples who share a child in common
Violence such as battery and other kinds of abuse such as verbal abuse
against an individual fall under this category. There are essentially
three California statutes that deal with domestic violence:
PC §273.5 – Inflicting corporal injury on a person with whom you are in a
domestic relationship is punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine
of up to $6,000 if charged with a misdemeanor. If charged with a felony,
then the penalties increase to up to 4 years in prison and up to $6,000 in fines.
PC §243(e)(1) – Battery of an individual with whom you are in a domestic relationship
carries penalties of up to 1 year in jail, up to $2,000 in fines, and
a minimum 1-year domestic violence treatment program.
PC §243(d) – When serious bodily injury is inflicted in a domestic violence
case, it automatically becomes aggravated battery. The penalties for conviction
of this offense can include up to a year in jail and a $6,000 fine if
charged with a misdemeanor; if charged with a felony, up to 4 years in
prison and the same fine.
