Kentucky Domestic Violence Laws & Penalties
What exactly is entailed by domestic violence? This crime can be defined as every type or form of abuse or violence going on between people who have a relationship with each other. This relationship can be romantic, between spouses or ex-spouses, partners or ex-partners.
However, it can also involve other members of a family, including parents, uncles and aunts, siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews, and grandparents.Even roommates can experience domestic violence, and the behavior does not have to be physically inside the house to count.
Because of these tragically high statistics, courts often automatically believe that the alleged victim is the innocent party. Sometimes, no physical injury might even be present.
Based on the circumstances and contexts of your case, in addition to any past criminal records you may have had, you might receive a charge of a misdemeanor or a felony, if the allegations are more serious.
Some of the penalties include:
- Up to a year in jail if charged as a misdemeanor, or years in prison if charged as a felony.
- Counseling for domestic violence
- Large fines.
- Inability to contact the alleged victim through no-contact orders.
- Decreased ability to contact family members related to both parties, such as a child
