Detroit Domestic Violence and Assault Laws
While all assault and battery cases are serious, it is exceptionally serious to be facing charges of assaulting or abusing a spouse or domestic partner. As defined by Detroit law, any spouse, former spouse, individual with whom a child is shared, individual with whom a dating relationship is or has been present or resident or former resident of the same household can be included under domestic abuse legislation.
Anyone who assaults or batters any person included on this list can face domestic abuse charges and the corresponding penalties. Basic assault charges not included under this section of legislation can result in a maximum of 93 days behind bars and a $500 fine. The penalties for domestic assault are similar, but can lead to additional punishment for repeat offenses and cases involving other extenuating circumstances.
