Criminal Charges & Penalties for Conviction in Mississippi

Domestic violence can arise from many situations and can often involve another crime, such as harassment, stalking, assault and battery, threats, false imprisonment, and sexual assault. Although domestic violence is often thought of as occurring between spouses, incidents don’t even have to be between related individuals.

A person can be arrested for domestic violence for disputes with a:

  • Spouse
  • Romantic partner
  • Roommate
  • Sibling
  • Parent

The penalties for domestic violence can depend on the specifics of the situation and whether this was your first offense or you have prior convictions. For a first offense, you could be facing up to six months in jail and fines of up to $500. A second conviction within five years can result in a felony offense, which comes with a prison sentence of 5 to 10 years.

How does domestic violence affect someone psychologically?

Domestic violence affects someone psychologically due to it leading to heightened fear, depression, anger, posttraumatic stress, drug abuse, alcohol abuse, and may even lead to thoughts of suicide. The effects can last for years and can rob you of the will to live a full and rich life.

Skilled Legal Representation

In addition to the possibility of a jail or prison sentence, a domestic violence conviction can harm your personal and professional reputation. A conviction will result in a criminal record, which could put your career at risk, especially if you hold a professional license or work with children or the elderly. Our Gulf Coast domestic violence attorneys can fight for your rights and work to minimize the impact on your life.
