An Overview Of Domestic Violence
Understanding Domestic Violence Charges in Florida
There are several different charges that fall under the heading of “domestic violence” in our state, ranging from misdemeanors resulting in a few days in jail, to felonies that can carry with them years of incarceration in the state prison system. Significant fines, enrollment in family violence courses or alcohol treatment, and months of probation are also common consequences following a conviction.
