Domestic Violence Crimes in California

By Stephen Cho  Jan. 25, 2012 5:19p

Criminal charges related to domestic violence are among the most common in the state of California. The California court system takes domestic violence very seriously in an effort to protect victims and their children. As a result, courts can favor victims over the accused and impose harsh penalties. If you are accused of a domestic violence crime, therefore, you will need a strong defender to ensure that your rights are protected, that you are treated fairly throughout the legal process, and that you have a compelling advocate working on your behalf in court.

Domestic violence charges involve abuse of a person with whom you have a domestic relationship. This person does not have to be only your spouse or a family member. You can be charged with domestic violence against someone you are dating, a former spouse, someone you formerly dated, a roommate or former roommate, the parent of your child to whom you are not married, as well as family members, such as parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. If you place the person in fear of bodily harm, even through threats, you can be charged with domestic violence. Once police officers are called onto the scene in an alleged domestic violence incident, it becomes a serious situation which can land you in jail as the accused. Once charges are filed, the state prosecutor will be handling the charges against you. Even if your accuser wishes to drop the charges, the prosecutor may not.
