WHEN LOVE TURNS VIOLENT
Depending on the nature of the violent act, the prosecutors can charge it either as a misdemeanor or a felony. A class A misdemeanor assault family violence means that one person caused bodily injury (or pain) to their partner. If the person used a deadly weapon, then it is a felony assault. If the person choked their partner or restricted their breathing, then it is also a felony. No matter the level of the criminal offense charged, you can expect the court to order you out of your home and have no contact until the case is resolved with your partner or spouse.
