Felony Domestic Violence

Jay Milano has long been recognized among the best domestic violence lawyers in Cleveland, Ohio.

Under certain circumstances misdemeanor domestic violence charges can escalate to a felony.

For instance, 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. And if the alleged victim is pregnant, you will face mandatory time in prison.

In many instances, a felony domestic violence charge is accompanied by additional criminal charges – this enhances the severity of your situation and greatly increases the risks. Felony domestic violence is considered a serious and violent crime – if you have been charged it is imperative you find an experienced criminal defense attorney you trust.
