The Consequences of Domestic Violence Charges
Domestic violence is an act of violence that is committed against a family member, household member, or someone the offender is either currently dating or dated in the past. The state of Texas charges domestic violence as a Class A misdemeanor if the person in question has no prior record. If the offender has any past domestic assault convictions, however, domestic violence can be charged as a third degree felony.
A domestic violence conviction can result in the following penalties:
- Class A misdemeanor: Up to 1 year in jail and/or $4,000 in fines
- 3rd degree felony: 2-10 years in prison and $10,000 in fines
- 2nd degree felony: 2-20 years in prison and $10,000 in fines
- 1st degree felony: 5-99 years in prison and $10,000 in fines
