It can be against a spouse, a relative, or another individual who forms cohabitation in one household with the alleged offender. The state also classifies violence between parties of a current or past dating relationship as domestic violence.

Restraining orders can be placed against the offender to prevent him or her from coming near to the alleged victim. In the state of Florida, those who are charged with a domestic violence offense will need the help of an experienced Miami criminal defense attorney from DeFabio, Beckham & Solis.

Penalties for Domestic Violence in Florida

The minimum penalty for a domestic violence conviction is five days in county jail or Florida state prison. The perpetrator can also be punished with a sentence of probation and community service. If the defendant was charged with additional charges, the punishments can be increased.Under Florida law, many types of crimes can be classified as domestic violence. Assault, battery, sexual assault and battery, stalking, and kidnapping are examples of these criminal offenses. Specific circumstances can cause the offense to be considered "aggravated" which means that it will be prosecuted as a felony with more severe penalties.
