Domestic Violence Violations
Domestic violence violations are among the most serious violations that are currently in existence and this is due to the great importance that the legislative and judicial branches unanimously attribute to the serious punishment served to whoever raises a hand on their family members. Moreover, the violation of domestic violence is considered aggravated assault and therefore will always be accompanied by an active prison sentence.
Nonetheless, if for the sake of demonstration we refer to the assault of a woman where in many cases such a complaint leads to the arrest of the husband before the filing of an indictment – and afterwards. It is important to remember that even if the person filing the complaint retracts the complaint, in most cases the investigation file is not closed, since often retracting the complaint is considered a result of the husband’s violent behavior – and therefore some judges will see this as an aggravation.
