Cases of domestic assault are commonly far more emotionally charged than normal assault. When family members fight, the pressure can rise to extreme levels, and police officers in Virginia Beach are quick to respond to a call in order to prevent the situation from getting worse. They will routinely make arrest before conducting a full investigation, and the alleged perpetrator will be subject to an emergency protective order for at least 3 days following the incident.

If you are charged with this crime, you can be punished with a Class 1 misdemeanor, which means that you may be sent to jail for up to a year and fined as much as $2,500.

Domestic assault prosecution often proceeds even when the alleged victim is not pressing charges, and in this case the situation can have a major disruptive effect on your family. In any case, it is vital for your future and the future of your family to work with a seasoned attorney from our team who can help you fight the charges. If you have no previous arrests for domestic assault, you may be eligible for a deferred sentence under the first offender program, which could allow you to have the case dropped after you serve a term of probation.
