This video blog post address the differences between felony and misdemeanor domestic violence charges. Felony and misdemeanor domestic violence charges typically arise from the same kind of scenarios. The factors that determine the level of the charges include the severity of the injuries sustained and whether or not a weapon was involved in the situation. A misdemeanor charge can sometimes be increased to a felony charge if a theft was committed in conjunction with the domestic violence offense.
If you are facing domestic violence charges, it is critical that you hire a private criminal defense attorney who has experience defending domestic violence cases in your state.
