2 Important Facts About Domestic Violence Charges in Wisconsin
Domestic abuse charges are more complex than they first appear. Here are two important facts about domestic abuse charges that you should know.
- In Wisconsin, domestic violence charges always occur alongside another charge, usually disorderly conduct. Domestic violence falls under the category of domestic abuse but may also be referred to as spousal abuse or family abuse/violence.
- Domestic abuse is distinguished from the more general assault or battery by the nature of the relationship between the victim and the perpetrator. To qualify as domestic abuse, the two people must have a “domestic relationship.” This can mean many things, including belonging to the same household, being romantic partners (married, dating, or divorced), family members or roommates, or have a parent/child relationship.
What Qualifies As Domestic Abuse?
Domestic abuse includes all of the same actions or aggressions as assault or battery, including:
• Causing intentional pain, illness, or injury to the other person.
• Sexually assaulting another person.
• Causing the other person to fear that they will be physically harmed by you.
• Intentionally impairing the other person.
Domestic violence charges will reflect the specific act(s) of violence committed and any penalties incurred will be based on those specific charges.
Don’t Fight Domestic Abuse Charges On Your Own
Fighting domestic abuse charges is an uphill battle, especially if you try to do it on your own. These are typically highly emotional situations and victims often receive more sympathy than the alleged violator, which can make it hard to successfully argue your case on your own.
