Phoenix domestic violence charges can be the result of something as seemingly minor as violating a restraining order with a late night phone call to physical assault or threats with weapons. As a result, these charges may be rated as a misdemeanor or a felony.
Many times authorities are called to a domestic fight with no witnesses and no evidence. A number of Phoenix departments have a policy of arresting of someone as a way to prevent further escalation. Often the decision on who to arrest for domestic violence is based solely on who called the police in the first place.
Phoenix Domestic Violence Penalties
Have no doubt about this: prosecutors and the courts take domestic violence charges very seriously and they aggressively seek the most severe penalties in court.
