What is Considered Domestic Violence in Florida?

Domestic violence occurs when a person commits a crime against a family or household member. This includes spouses, ex-spouses, parents, children, siblings, and anyone related by blood or marriage who lives together in the same household. It also includes people who are currently in or have previously been in a dating relationship.

There are several different offenses that can be charged as domestic violence, including:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Stalking
  • False imprisonment
  • Aggravated assault/battery
  • Sexual assault/battery

Domestic violence can be charged as a felony or misdemeanor depending on the specific circumstances. For example, if the alleged victim suffered serious bodily harm, the offense will likely be charged as a felony.

What Are the Penalties for Domestic Violence in Florida?

A domestic violence conviction can lead to the following penalties in Florida:

  • First-degree misdemeanor: Up to 1 year in jail and/or fines up to $1,000
  • Third-degree felony: Up to 5 years in prison and/or fines up to $5,000
  • Second-degree felony: Up to 15 years in prison and/or fines up to $10,000

How Do I Get Domestic Violence Charges Dropped in Florida?

There are several potential defenses to domestic violence charges, including:

  • Self-defense
  • False allegations
  • Wrong suspect
  • Insufficient evidence
  • Police misconduct

If you have been charged with domestic violence, you mustn't speak to the police or the alleged victim about the case. Anything you say can be used against you, and even an innocent statement could be twisted and used to support the prosecution's case. You should contact an experienced domestic violence attorney in Titusville as soon as possible.

What Happens When You Get Charged with Domestic Violence in Florida?

After you are arrested for domestic violence in Florida, you will be taken to the police station, where you will be fingerprinted, photographed, and booked into the system. You will then be held in jail until your first appearance, which is usually within 24 hours of your arrest. At your first appearance, the judge will determine if there is probable cause to hold you in jail and what your bond will be. You will be given a court date for your arraignment, where you will enter your plea. If you plead not guilty, the court will set a trial date.

You should have an experienced domestic violence attorney in Titusville by your side at every stage of the proceedings. At Ali & Blankner, we can represent you at your first appearance and fight to get a reasonable bond set so you can get out of jail and back home to your family.
