What are the Penalties For Domestic Violence in Massachusetts?
Depending on the severity of the offense, your consequences may be extremely harsh. Factors that will be considered when determining penalties include, but are not limited to, the following:
- The type of violent actions
- The nature of the violence
- How long the actions had been taking place
- If there were any previous charges or convictions
- Who the victim was and their relation to the abuser
- If the individual was on probation or parole at the time
Most cases that involve battery or assault involve charges for a misdemeanor. In the event that the case was a form of assault that involved a weapon, you may be charged with a felony. Maximum time in prison for either a misdemeanor or felony in a district court is two and a half years in a penitentiary.
If the victim has received significant damage as a result of the violent behavior, the case may move to superior court. Here, the maximum time in prison could be up to 10 years. Other fines may be included. However, with the assistance of a qualified lawyer, your penalties may be significantly reduced.
