Andrew M. Weisberg Takes Skokie Domestic Violence Charges Seriously
While many people believe that the term “domestic violence” refers only to the act of assaulting a romantic partner, the term actually covers a number of different crimes under Illinois state law. In fact, domestic violence charges can be brought against you even if there is no evidence that you’ve physically harmed someone you’re in an intimate relationship with. Harassment, intimidation of a dependent, and interference with personal liberty are all things that fall under the blanket term of domestic violence. These types of charges can apply to anyone you have a familial or intimate relationship with, male or female. No matter what specific charge you’re facing, though, one thing is clear: you need to take the charges against you seriously and retain the best Skokie defense attorney you can.

You Need an Assertive Defense in a Domestic Battery Case
Although there are different types of domestic violence charges, the most common one is domestic battery (720 ILCS 5/12-3.2). If you are charged with domestic battery, you are being accused of purposefully and unlawfully causing physical contact with intent to harm any of the following people:
- Domestic partner
- Cohabitating girlfriend/boyfriend
- Girlfriend/boyfriend who does not live with you
- Anyone else with whom a familial relationship exists
If this is the first time you’ve been charged with domestic violence, you’re likely facing a class A misdemeanor. However, if you have any prior convictions, you may be facing a class 4 felony, which includes prison time. Even if you are not looking at a potential prison sentence, you will likely still have to contend with hefty fines, restraining orders, a criminal record, and a tarnished reputation if you are convicted. With a criminal record, you may experience difficulty obtaining a loan, getting housing, entering an educational program, and even getting a job.
