Each year in the United States an estimated four million women are assaulted by an intimate partner, such as a husband, an ex-husband, or a boyfriend. The people who inflict their partners with such cruel pain are harshly punished. Unfortunately, many men and women are falsely accused of spousal abuse every year. Their lives are being ruined by these outrageous accusations, which many times are concocted for malicious and vindictive purposes.

In recent years law enforcement officers, Judges, and District Attorneys in California have educated themselves on domestic violence, as well as the changing laws and punishments that apply to different types of abuse. All accusations of spousal abuse are taken extremely seriously. A restraining order, loss of work, child custody issues, and attack on your reputation can accompany a false accusation, resulting in long lasting and devastating effects. The penalties for a spousal abuse in California conviction may include:

  • Anger management programs
  • Counseling
  • Felony charges
  • Jail time
  • Misdemeanor charges
  • Monetary fines
  • Probation

There are many acts which do not constitute spousal abuse, such as engaging in a verbal argument with your spouse. If your intimate partner has wrongly accused you of assault or any other type of spouse abuse you should contact a spouse abuse defense lawyer immediately!
