Domestic Violence in San Jose, California

While many people associate domestic violence simply with the physical assault between spouses, it can actually stretch much larger than that. Domestic violence can include anything from physical abuse to sexual violence, from stalking to economic cruelty. Anything that could impose physical or emotional harm on someone within a household would fall within this bracket. Many cases often go unreported, leading towards even more serious consequences further down the road. Regardless, it is a serious crime with serious punishments, it is not the time to delay or ignore if you're faced with charges.

If convicted of a domestic violence crime in California, you can be faced with long-term prison sentences, counseling, parole, probation or the loss of child custody.
