What are the consequences of a domestic assault conviction?
The consequences from these types of convictions can be dire. Depending on the nature of your crime, whether you’ve been charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, and whether this is your first time being arrested for a crime, you could be looking at the following consequences:
- A prison sentence that can last for several years.
- Statutory fines in the thousands of dollars.
- Restitution to your victim(s) that could range in the thousands of dollars, depending on the extent and nature of their injuries.
- Required enrollment in an anger management and/or domestic violence class.
- A suspension of your driver’s license for any reason whatsoever (meaning you won’t even be able to drive to work!)
- A no contact order (commonly referred to as a restraining order) put in place against you on your victim’s behalf (which can be devastating if you have children with the victim).
- Up to five years’ probation.
- If your assault involved sexual violence, you could be required to register as a sex offender, and this registration will follow you for the rest of your life, no matter which state you move to.
