Domestic Violence A Team Backed By 100 Years of Experience 

Newport Beach Domestic Violence Attorneys

How Much Time Do You Get For Domestic Violence in California?

California law treats domestic violence uniquely because it involves family members. The crime is treated as specialized assault and can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony. Though less serious than felonies, misdemeanors are punishable by up to one year in jail. When domestic violence is charged as assault, longer prison sentences are a possibility.

General California domestic violence penalties include:

  • As much as $6,000 in fines
  • One year in county jail
  • Up to 4 years in state prison
  • Restraining orders
  • Loss of child custody
  • Punitive damages
  • 52-week rehabilitation class

Worst of all, a California domestic violence conviction goes on one’s permanent criminal record and will surface anytime they’re subject to a routine background check. This can make it difficult to gain employment, housing, professional licensing, and other benefits. It is imperative to hire an experienced and aggressive Orange County Criminal Defense Attorney from Corrigan Welbourn Stokke to protect your future.
