Types of Domestic Violence

There are many offenses that may fall under the umbrella of domestic violence, including but not limited to:

  • Domestic assault/aggravated assault
  • Domestic battery/aggravated battery
  • Elderly abuse
  • Kidnapping/false imprisonment
  • Stalking, harassment, and aggravated stalking
  • Sexual battery, rape, and other related sex offenders
  • Violating a restraining order and/or no-contact order violation
  • An act resulting in injury or death of a household member by another household member

In order for a criminal act to be considered domestic violence, the parties involved spouses, former spouses, people related by blood, people living together in the same household, people who have resided in the same household in the past, or people who have a child or children together regardless of current or former marital status. Our Jupiter domestic violence attorneys could be uniquely qualified to investigate the circumstances surrounding your case and work on your behalf to contest your charges and seek a positive resolution.

Consequences for Domestic Violence

As of October 1, 2017, Florida has minimum jail sentences for domestic violence. Specifically, according to Florida Statutes §741.283, a first-time offender must spend 10 days in jail if convicted.

Upon a second and third conviction, the offender would be sentenced to 15 days in jail and 20 days in jail, respectively. Furthermore, according to Fla. Stat. §741.281, those convicted of domestic violence are required to spend at least one year on probation and participate in a batterers’ intervention program.

Depending on the circumstances of their case, a convicted Defendant may also lose their concealed weapons permit, become unable to seal or expunge the record of their domestic violence arrest, face civil proceedings such as injunctions and restraining orders, and pay fines. The Jupiter domestic violence lawyers at Leifert & Leifert have expertise and experience in protecting Defendants from these harsh and often life-altering punishments.
