Domestic Abuse Battery
In Louisiana, domestic abuse battery is the use of force or violence committed against another household member. Domestic abuse battery can be a misdemeanor or felony offence depending on the injury, number of prior convictions, and other factors set forth in the law. Even the misdemeanor offences are serious because they can require the accused to enter into protective orders. Misdemeanor offenses can also affect a person’s right to possess a firearm and can also affect child custody if children are involved as victims or witnesses. The court can also require the accused to attend counseling. Domestic Abuse cases are very serious and anyone charged with domestic abuse battery should be represented by an attorney.
