What is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behavior within a family or household relationship that is intended to gain and maintain control over another person. These relationships include spouses, former spouses, current or former dating partners, and family members. Domestic violence manifests in various forms, including physical abuse, emotional or psychological abuse, sexual abuse, and economic control.

In Texas, the law takes domestic violence seriously. It encompasses a wide range of actions, such as:

  • Physical Abuse: This includes hitting, slapping, punching, kicking, or any form of physical harm intended to cause pain or injury to a family member or household member.
  • Emotional or Psychological Abuse: This form of abuse involves behavior designed to control or manipulate the victim's emotions, self-esteem, or decision-making, often through threats, intimidation, or isolation.
  • Sexual Abuse: This refers to any non-consensual sexual activity within a domestic relationship.
  • Economic Control: An abuser may use financial control, such as withholding money, controlling access to funds, or preventing the victim from seeking employment or education.

What are the Penalties for Domestic Violence in Texas?

The state of Texas takes domestic violence cases very seriously, and the penalties for those convicted can be harsh. The specific penalties vary depending on the severity of the offense, prior criminal history, and other factors. Some potential consequences of domestic violence convictions include:

  • Criminal Charges: Domestic violence charges can result in various criminal charges, including assault, aggravated assault, sexual assault, or harassment. Conviction for these offenses can lead to fines, probation, or imprisonment.
  • Protective Orders: A protective order, also known as a restraining order, may be issued to prevent the alleged offender from contacting the victim. Violating this order can lead to further legal consequences.
  • Loss of Firearm Rights: A domestic violence conviction may result in the loss of your right to own or possess firearms under federal law.
  • Negative Impact on Family Relationships: A domestic violence conviction can damage family relationships, potentially leading to divorce or the loss of child custody or visitation rights.
  • Employment and Housing Issues: A domestic violence conviction can hinder future employment opportunities and make it difficult to secure housing.

Understanding the severity of the potential penalties, it is essential to explore possible defenses against domestic violence charges.

Defenses Against Domestic Violence Charges

Defending against domestic violence charges requires careful consideration and a thorough understanding of the legal system. At Mathur Law Offices, P.C., we have successfully represented numerous clients facing domestic violence charges and have employed a range of effective defenses, including:

  • Self-Defense: If the accused can prove they were defending themselves from an immediate threat of physical harm, they may have a valid self-defense claim.
  • False Allegations: Domestic violence charges may arise from false or exaggerated allegations. Our attorneys will investigate the circumstances to uncover the truth.
  • Lack of Evidence: The prosecution must prove the defendant's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. If there is insufficient evidence to support the charges, a case may be dismissed.
  • Violation of Rights: We will examine the conduct of law enforcement during the arrest and investigation to ensure that your constitutional rights were not violated.
  • Mental Health or Substance Abuse Issues: The accused's actions may be related to mental health issues or substance abuse problems, which can be addressed through treatment rather than incarceration.
