Domestic Violence Charges in Chandler Are Serious
As in other states, domestic violence is not an actual statute under Arizona law. Rather, domestic violence is an enhancement to other crimes that occur under AZ statutes. In order for another type of charge to be enhanced to a domestic violence offense, the alleged crime has to have happened between a person and someone else that they have (or had) a domestic relationship with. This can include a person committing violent acts against their:
- Spouse or ex-spouse
- Current or former partner
- Child’s other parents
When we look specifically at Arizona Revised Statute § 13-1601, we see a list of specific types of abusive behaviors that could result in a domestic violence enhancement. This includes the following:
- Sexual assault
The penalties associated with a domestic violence charge typically follow the charges associated with whichever misdemeanor or felony offense a person is facing. In Arizona, misdemeanor assault charges are typically Class 1 misdemeanor offenses that could result in a person facing up to six months in jail and fines up to $2,500.
Aggravated battery domestic violence offenses could result in a person facing a felony charge, which carries a significant prison sentence and a fine of up to $150,000.
