What Is Spousal Abuse?
Spousal abuse is a form of
domestic violence generally defined as any type of abusive or violent conduct between romantic
partners who are married, dating, or living together in the same residence.
Abuse can be physical, verbal, emotional, financial, or even spiritual
in nature and can be either a singular incident or a repeated cycle over
time. Depending on the circumstances, individuals accused of spousal abuse
can be charged with a variety of different crimes, including assault and
battery, threatening, disorderly conduct, criminal trespassing, or harassment.
As with any other type of domestic violence charge, spousal abuse charges
are punished particularly seriously in the state of Arizona and can expose
an accused individual to a variety of harsh consequences upon conviction.
A conviction of spousal abuse in Arizona can carry the following penalties:
- Jail time
- Expensive fines
- A permanent criminal record
- Supervised probation
- Mandatory domestic violence treatment program participation
In instances where a person’s charge involves serious bodily injury
to the victim or the use of a weapon, the defendant can face serious felony
aggravated assault charges and face up to 15 years in prison. Regardless of the circumstances,
if you have been accused of spousal abuse, it is urgent you contact our
office as soon as possible to begin building your defense.
