Penalties for Domestic Violence in Texas
Depending on the details surrounding the offense, domestic violence can be charged as a “Class C” misdemeanor or as serious as a first degree felony. If you’ve been arrested for domestic violence, you should not hesitate in contacting The Clark Law Firm. We will work tirelessly to ensure that your rights are protected and we will fight against the evidence that is presented against you.
When determining which penalty to impose, the courts will consider the following:
- The victim’s relationship with the defendant
- Past convictions
- Whether suffocation or strangulation was involved
How many years can you get for domestic violence?
In Texas, you can face serious penalties including jail time if convicted of domestic violence:
- First degree felony – a $10,000 fine and 5 to 99 years in prison
- Second degree felony – a $10,000 fine and 2 to 20 years in prison
- Third degree felony – a $10,000 fine and 2 to 10 years in prison
- Class A misdemeanor – a $4,000 fine or up to one year in jail or both
Building Effective Defense Strategies
Domestic violence cases tend to be complex since they often involve bystander's accounts or accusations and hearsay. It is important that you retain any evidence or proof you may have, such as documented text messages or emails. Whether there is one specific incident you are being charged with or ongoing abuse, the more information that you can provide, the better.
Meanwhile, we can get to work building a strong case on your behalf using your evidence, as well as any evidence and witness testimonies we can gather. We can also assist you in dealing with restraining orders and orders of protection if one has been filed against you.
