Placed at the Mercy of the Court
The court will consider many issues before sentencing in a domestic violence case. The defendant may or may not be released on bail but will receive a temporary restraining order to prevent further contact with the complaining witness. A conviction for domestic violence or abuse can have significant ramifications like jail time, payment of large fines and probation. Additionally, a conviction on charges of domestic violence may impact custody negotiations making it more difficult for the alleged offender to obtain custody or even visitation with children. The court can order an evaluation of the mental condition of the offender via a psychiatric examination, especially in the situation of a protective order or consent agreement violation. Further, the judge may order treatment as a condition of probation.
