Domestic violence occurs between family or household members. Most commonly we see this between spouses or parents and children however it can include other relatives as well. Florida statute §741.28 defines domestic violence as one of several crimes that falls under the “domestic abuse” umbrella. These can be violent offenses that bring severe consequences if convicted.
As a prosecutor attorney Jason Fagnano was an integral part of the D.O.V.E. (Domestic Violence Elimination) specialty unit. His experience in that unit and the benefit it provides his clients cannot be understated.
Domestic violence charges in Florida do not occur solely between married persons or blood relatives. If two people live together but are not married, charges may be prosecuted as domestic violence charges. The statute also defines “dating violence” as violence that occurs between people who have or have had a romantic relationship within the last 6 months but who do not necessarily live together. If you have questions regarding “dating violence” or “domestic violence,” contact our law firm today.
