When Is Domestic Violence A Felony?
If you have a prior conviction for domestic violence, a second domestic violence charge is a fourth-degree felony, and you are considered a “repeat offender.” More than two prior domestic violence convictions enhance the offense to a third-degree felony, which carries the possibility of five years in prison. If the alleged victim is pregnant, you will face mandatory time in prison.
Additionally, depending on the circumstances you may face a domestic violence felony charge of a different class:
- Fifth degree felony
- Fourth degree felony
- Third degree felony
The third degree felony carries the steepest charges and will be extremely difficult for you to maintain a relationship with your child. These consequences will lead to a permanent mark on your criminal record.
