Domestic Violence Laws in Monroe County

Domestic violence goes beyond intimate relationships, encompassing various connections within a household. This includes individuals who commit assault or battery against a spouse or former spouse, a current or former dating partner, someone with whom they share parenthood, or any person residing or previously residing in the same household. Recognizing that domestic violence can occur among family members, household occupants, or individuals in dating relationships, regardless of marital status or gender, is essential. This broader understanding emphasizes the complexity of domestic violence cases and underscores the importance of comprehensively addressing the issue within the legal system.

Domestic Violence Penalties in Monroe County

Usually the first domestic violence offense is a misdemeanor, but as with any criminal charge there can be mitigating circumstances that result in higher charges. Initially, you may face up to 90 days incarcerated and a $500 fine. The second time will result in higher charges; up to a year incarcerated and a $1000 fine. Anything after that may result in up to five years incarcerated and $5000 fine. A domestic violence charge can also impede your rights to bare arms, and can bar you from certain kinds of employment. We at The Law Office of Julian J. Poota understand the delicacy it takes to handle these types of cases, as they are often between loved ones. We have the experience to create the best possible outcome for these unfortunate charges.
