Domestic Violence Defined

Section 741.28 defines domestic violence as any assault, aggravated assault, battery, aggravated battery, sexual assault, sexual battery, stalking, aggravated stalking, kidnapping, false imprisonment, or any other act of violence resulting in a physical injury against another family or household member.

A domestic violence victim can file a petition requesting an injunction for protection against domestic violence, which may order the alleged abuser to:

  • Stop committing further abuse
  • Leave the home
  • Surrender their firearms
  • Stay away from the victim's residence, school, and workplace

Penalties of Domestic Violence Convictions

If the alleged abuser is a mother or father, he or she may be ordered to relinquish custody of his or her children, and may be ordered to pay child support.

If convicted of domestic violence, the offender faces:

  • Restraining order
  • Incarceration
  • Permanent criminal record
  • Probation
  • Completion of a batterers intervention program
  • Community control

Seek Quality Legal Representation

Innocent men and women are often falsely accused of domestic violence, especially in cases involving divorce or a child custody battle.

Since a conviction can have devastating consequences that affect your personal and professional life, you can significantly benefit from retaining a Jacksonville criminal defense lawyer from our firm.
