Protect Your Family Relationships

Domestic violence is a highly politicized and very serious crime, and in some counties there are special prosecutors designated to prosecute only related cases. Domestic violence battery is any unlawful touching or striking of a person classified by statute as a family or household member.

These people could include:

  • Wives
  • Husbands
  • Ex-spouses
  • Individuals related by blood or marriage
  • Individuals living together as a family unit
  • People who resided together as a family in the past
  • People who have a child in common, regardless of current or prior marriage

If you are convicted of domestic violence battery, you could face either misdemeanor or felony charges, depending on how serious the victim’s injuries were and whether or not a weapon was used.

You could face:

  • First-degree misdemeanor: up to 12 months in jail or 12 months on probation with a fine of up to $1,000
  • Third-degree felony: Up to 5 years in prison or 5 years on probation with a fine of up to $5,000

On top of the traditional and specific punishments imposed on crimes that are deemed to be domestic in nature, a domestic charge can’t be sealed or expunged. You will forever have a permanent violent criminal history, and you will lose your civil rights to vote, carry a firearm, run for office, and more. Make sure you speak with an Orlando criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.

What Is Domestic Battery by Strangulation?

Under Florida law, domestic battery by strangulation is defined as knowingly and intentionally impeding the normal breathing or blood circulation of a family member, household member, or significant other by applying pressure on the throat or neck or by blocking the nose or mouth in a manner that creates a risk of, or actually causes, great bodily injury.

No matter what, if you’re accused of domestic battery by strangulation, you should never enter a plea of guilty without first consulting with a competent criminal defense attorney who has experience handling these types of cases.

Any conviction for this crime carries a mandatory 29-week batterers’ intervention program, forfeiture of the right to have firearms while on probation, a revoked concealed carry permit, and ineligibility for sealing or expungement, even if you receive a withhold of adjudication.
