What Are Some Charges Associated with Domestic Violence?
Some of the most common charges associated with domestic violence in Texas include domestic/aggravated battery, kidnapping/false imprisonment, domestic/aggravated assault, stalking, harassment or aggravated stalking, rape, sexual battery, and sex crimes. Ultimately, the use of force that causes bodily injury or threatens to cause bodily harm in a domestic situation is deemed domestic violence. In order to prove a case, a prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that someone did this particular act intentionally or knowingly. If any bodily injury did occur, they have to prove evidence that reckless actions caused this injury.
Help in Filing a Restraining Order
Domestic violence can occur between more than just couples. They can also happen between sibling, parents, a child, or anyone living together. A temporary order can be placed for 20 days (and may be extended) while a general one can be put into place for up to two years. Fines vary depending on the circumstances and the person’s past criminal history. Filing a restraining order can be stressful.
