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.
