Indiana Domestic Violence Criminal Defense Lawyer

While several domestic violence charges in Indiana are Class A misdemeanor offenses, some rise to the level of a felony. In either case, your reputation and possibly your freedom may be at stake.

An Indiana domestic violence criminal defense lawyer from the Law Offices of Shane O’Donnell will mount your defense today.

Charges That Can Qualify as Domestic Violence in Indiana

In Indiana, you may face a family law case if you stand accused of:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Harassment
  • Stalking
  • Threatening 
  • Any other act that falls under the purview of domestic violence

Domestic violence can apply if you share a residence with the alleged victim, are in a romantic relationship, are family, or are parties to a protection order. If you are the defendant in a domestic violence case, your future is on the line. 

What Is at Stake If You Are Convicted of a Domestic Violence Charge in Indiana?

Ind. Code § 35-42-2-1.3 is among the statutes that determine what legal penalties you face for a domestic violence conviction. In great detail, it explains the specific actions that could escalate a misdemeanor domestic battery offense to a felony. 

Our firm will review the specific charges you face and the sentences they could lead to, and potential consequences include:

  • Jail time
  • Prison time
  • Fines
  • Protection orders
  • Mandatory community service
  • Probation

A conviction is harmful in its own right. Having a conviction of domestic violence on your record could prevent you from obtaining desirable housing, employment, parental rights, and financial services.
