Understanding Domestic Violence Charges in Massachusetts
Domestic violence charges in Massachusetts refer to a specific crime of assault and battery on a family or household member outlined in Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 265 Section 13M. It states that a person who commits assault and battery on a "family or household member" can be placed in a correctional facility for up to 2 and a half years and fined up to $5000. A second or subsequent offense of the same crime can be punished by up to 5 years in state prison. Aggravating factors can result in additional charges, longer jail sentences, and higher fines.
In addition to criminal penalties for those convicted of domestic violence in Massachusetts, victims of domestic violence can file for a restraining order against the accused abuser which will legally require them to stay away from the victim. The restraining order can also provide protection for the victim’s children, if necessary. If a restraining order is violated, then the accused abuser can be charged with contempt of court which carries additional penalties.
