What Is Domestic Violence?
Domestic violence involves any type of violent, abusive, or threatening behavior between family or household members. The state of Arizona defines family and household members very broadly; such individuals can include former spouses, current spouses, cohabitants, children, and others.
Domestic violence can include the following:
- Simple assault
- Aggravated assault
- Aggravated assault with a weapon
- Unlawful imprisonment
- Criminal trespass
- False imprisonment
- Reckless or intentional conduct that causes serious physical injury
- Reckless conduct that causes serious physical injury
- Reckless conduct that causes physical injury to a child or vulnerable adult
It’s important to note that simply threatening to harm someone can be considered domestic violence, even if no act of assault occurs. If the victim reasonably fears for his or her safety, charges may be brought against the alleged offender.
Penalties for Domestic Violence
The penalties for domestic violence depend on the seriousness of the offense and the criminal history of the accused, along with numerous other factors. While first-time offenders may not be sentenced to jail time, repeat offenders will face jail or prison time, steep fines, and other penalties.
In addition to jail time, domestic violence offenders may face the following penalties:
- Protective (restraining) orders
- Loss of gun rights
- Loss of child custody rights
- Loss of visitation rights/parenting time
