Domestic violence is one of the most commonly charged crimes in the State of California.
Criminal charges often result from false allegations made out of anger, jealousy or a desire for revenge against the accused.
Many of the accused are actually innocent and never committed this crime in the first place.
In the State of California, little can be done once the charges have been filed, because prosecutors will pursue the charges even if the accuser recants the accusation or declines to press charges.
The severity of a domestic violence conviction often depends on the seriousness of the injuries and whether or not the accused has a prior criminal record. However, even a first time conviction can have serious consequences.
Domestic violence can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony, meaning that there is a genuine risk of a state prison sentence.
Even when probation is granted, mandatory terms include:
- a large fine
- significant jail time
- a 52-week anger management program
