Domestic violence is a crime that focuses on the alleged victims of  the crime. For many people who have been accused of a crime, this can lead to confusion because similar incidents carry drastically different penalties simply because the so-called victim is “different’.

A conviction for any crime that has an element of domestic violence to it can be very costly. Our attorneys know this and legally represent those who have been accused of domestic violence both in the courtroom and outside of it.

Domestic violence is not an individual crime

Technically, domestic violence is not an individual crime. Instead, it is an element of criminal actions that make the penalties more severe – similar to an aggravating factor.

In California, the aggravating factor that turns an alleged crime into an allegation of domestic violence is the relationship between you, the defendant, and the purported victim, also known as the  complainant. The precise nature of the relationship necessary to turn a normal crime into a crime of domestic violence, however, can change depending on the underlying charge: Some charges require a closer relationship between the defendant and complainant than others.

For example, the type of relationship needed for a criminal charge to become a domestic violence charge is different for the crime of spousal abuse, prohibited by California Penal Code 273.5, then it is for the crime of domestic battery under California Penal Code 243(e)(1). Spousal abuse requires the defendant and complainant to be either:

•    Current or former spouses
•    Current or former cohabitants
•    Fiancés
•    Currently or previously in a dating relationship
•    Parents of a particular child

On the other hand, domestic battery is more confined. It requires the relationship between the defendant and complainant to be:

•    Current or former spouses
•    Current cohabitants
•    Fiancés
•    Currently or previously in a dating relationship
•    Parents of a particular child
