Penalties for Domestic Violence in Florida
A majority of domestic violence charges start out as misdemeanors. If you
have a previous criminal history or are a police officer or member of
the military, then a conviction of domestic violence could end your career.
Even something as small as a scratch could be grounds for charges of domestic violence.
Penalties for domestic violence misdemeanor charges include:
- 12 month probation period
- 5 days in jail (if you are found guilty and bodily injury is involved)
- A no contact order may be imposed
- Additional community service hours
- Loss of certain important civil liberties
- Mandatory 26-week Batterer’s Intervention Program
In addition, someone charged with domestic violence is not able to have
his or her record sealed or expunged under Florida Law. If you are convicted,
you may face a life-long criminal record.
