Domestic Violence Charges
Tampa Domestic Violence Lawyer
In the state of Florida, there are strict laws on the books to protect spouses and children from acts of domestic violence and abuse. While these serve a very important and noble purpose, the scope of these laws can result in innocent people being arrested for serious criminal charges. Domestic violence can occur by any spouse, ex-spouse, or other family or household member.
Many times, an incident is not what it seems on the surface and the police make an arrest based on accusations that are actually false or seriously exaggerated. It is important to immediately contact with a Tampa domestic violence attorney if you have been accused of or arrested for any sort of domestic violence criminal charge.
The abuse in a domestic violence incident can be of either physical or psychological nature. It can cover assault and battery, sexual abuse, elder neglect and abuse, stalking, harassment, and more. A wide spectrum of criminal charges can be filed in a domestic violence case, including:
- Assault and aggravated assault
- Battery and aggravated battery
- False imprisonment
- Child Abuse
- Sexual Battery
- Violating a Restraining Order or Injunction
- Stalking and Aggravated Stalking
These charges include misdemeanors and felonies, and can in some cases lead to years in prison if you are convicted.
