People accused of committing domestic abuse offenses may face charges such as:

  • Domestic assault & battery
  • Domestic abuse committed in the presence of a minor child
  • Domestic assault & battery committed against a pregnant woman
  • Domestic abuse resulting in great bodily injury
  • Domestic assault & battery by strangulation

While domestic assault and battery, domestic abuse witnessed by a child, and domestic violence against a woman known to be pregnant are misdemeanor charges for first-time offenses, second or subsequent instances are automatically charged as felonies. Additionally, domestic abuse that results in great bodily injury and domestic assault and battery by strangulation (or attempted strangulation) are charged as felonies due to the presence of aggravating factors—even if it's the defendant's first offense.
