The facts of your case will determine whether your charge is a misdemeanor or a felony charge. In addition, your criminal history or lack thereof will be taken into consideration. The consequences for a spousal or child abuse conviction can alter your life forever. If found guilty, some of the real repercussions you could face include:
- substantial jail time
- costly fines
- financial obligations for the victim’s physical, mental, and emotional recovery
- financial obligations for your rehabilitation
- rigid probation
- obligatory counseling
- community service

Still others have crossed the line of regret by a one-time act in the heat of the moment.
