Make Sure Your Rights and Interests are Protected

Many domestic violence cases are evaluated on a level of the severity of the damage done. The degree of injury to the victim determines whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or a felony. Generally, misdemeanors constitute cases that involve little or no injury, while felonies are cases in which significant injuries occur.

What are some typical penalties for misdemeanor domestic violence charges?

  • Probation
  • Fines
  • Short to moderate jail sentences
  • Restitution to the victim
  • Mandatory treatment or counseling programs

Felony charges are more severe, and the penalties are determined by the severity of the crime and the specific circumstances surrounding the incident. In New York, the lowest felony charge (class E) generally has a maximum sentence of four years in prison and a minimum sentence of one year. In addition to prison time, the convicted felon may lose the right to vote, buy and own firearms, eligibility for welfare benefits and federally subsidized housing, and can have some operator or professional licenses revoked.
