What Is Domestic Violence?
Domestic violence encompasses a broad range of behaviors that involve an abuser exerting power and control over another person within an intimate relationship. This can include physical abuse, verbal abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, stalking, cyberstalking, and more. Unfortunately, many victims of domestic violence don’t know how to escape their situation or how to seek help from authorities until it’s too late. If you are facing DV/AVF charges in Williamson County then you need to seek out experienced legal representation immediately.
Types of Domestic Violence Charges in Williamson County, TX
In Texas, there are three main types of domestic violence offenses:
- Domestic Assault (Class A Misdemeanor or Felony)
- Aggravated Domestic Assault (2nd-1st Degree Felony)
- Continuous Violence against the Family (3rd Degree Felony)
The severity of the charge depends on the circumstances surrounding the incident as well as any prior convictions for similar offenses on either side. For example, an incident involving strangulation would likely result in a more severe charge than one without such a component present.
