Common Domestic Violence Crimes
There is a tendency to think of domestic violence as something that goes on between husbands and wives. But the reality is, spouses, fiancés, cohabitants, dating partners, and even exes with whom you have children are all protected under domestic violence laws. Depending on the details of the alleged abuse, you could face charges for:
Domestic Battery: Any offensive touching of a domestic partner can result in charges for domestic battery. The contact does not have to leave any visible injury.
Corporal Injury to a Spouse: If you hit, kick, scratch, slap, or otherwise violently attack a domestic partner and it leaves any kind of visible injury, you could be charged with this crime.
Criminal Threats: If you make a threat against a domestic partner, you may be charged with criminal threats. This crime may not sound too serious, but it can be charged as a felony, in which case it could count as a felony under the California Three Strikes Law.
Intimate Partner Stalking: Following a current or former intimate partner and/or engaging in a pattern of harassing or threatening behaviors is a special form of stalking that can be prosecuted as a domestic violence crime.
Elder Abuse: In cases where the domestic partner is 65 or older, any kind of physical or emotional abuse could result in charges for elder abuse.
