Domestic Battery Charges Are Serious

Our Indianapolis Domestic Battery Attorneys are Here to Protect Your Rights

When the alleged victim of a battery offense is the spouse or intimate partner of the defendant, domestic battery charges can be filed. While the same general defenses that you have in a normal battery charge will also apply to a domestic battery charge, a domestic battery conviction can carry additional penalties that make it critical to properly prepare your defense.

Hiring an Indianapolis domestic battery law firm such as Razumich & Associates is crucial for taking all the necessary precautions for your defense

The consequences of a domestic battery conviction involve more than just potential jail time. The long-term ramifications of being convicted of domestic battery include:

  • A conviction for domestic battery can be used in future civil proceedings to restrict or modify child custody or parenting time.
  • If the defendant has a previous conviction for domestic battery, or if the alleged battery occurred in the presence of a minor or a child, the battery is charged as a Level 6 felony in the state of Indiana, rather than a Class A Misdemeanor.
  • A person convicted of domestic battery loses their right to own or possess a firearm, even if the conviction was for a misdemeanor rather than a felony. Being found in possession of a firearm or ammunition after a domestic battery conviction can result in serious felony charges.

Domestic Battery Charges Should Be Treated Seriously

A domestic battery conviction can be devastating for you and your family. These charges need to be treated with the utmost seriousness. Do NOT base your defense on the possibility that your spouse or significant other might not show up. Make sure to do everything you can to prepare a strong defense.
