What Are The Consequences Of A Conviction?

The criminal penalties for conviction pertaining to domestic violence are severe. They may include:

  • An order of protection from the alleged victim
  • Community service
  • Mandatory counseling or anger management classes
  • Probation
  • Jail time

Domestic abuse convictions can also have consequences outside of the criminal justice system, such as:

  • Loss of your job
  • Reduced custodial or visitation rights with your children
  • Suspension or expulsion from an educational institution
  • Eviction from your home
  • Fewer career and housing options

Federal Crimes Are Much More Severe

Federal charges are much more serious than state-level offenses. They often have mandatory minimum sentences that are disproportionately harsh. Clark, Jones & Ruyle, LLC, practices in both state and federal courts, so we can defend you against both misdemeanor and felony charges.
