When Is Battery "Domestic Battery?"
Battery is defined by harmful physical contact that occurs between two individuals. However, for a battery charge to be considered "domestic battery," the victim must share a certain relationship with the accused.
Victims in domestic battery cases can include:
- Current romantic partners
- Former romantic partners
- Any individual the accused shares a residence with
Domestic battery is considered a Class A misdemeanor, which can result in up to a year in jail and $2,500 in fines. However, unlike other misdemeanors, domestic battery convictions cannot later be expunged from a defendant's record.
