Domestic violence crimes are given heightened attention here in Tampa and throughout the state of Florida. Per state law Fla. Stat. § 741.28(2), domestic violence is classified as “any assault, aggravated assault, battery, aggravated battery, sexual assault, sexual battery, stalking, aggravated stalking, kidnapping, false imprisonment, or any criminal offense resulting in physical injury or death of one family or household member by another family or household member.”
When accused of a domestic violence crime, a prosecutor is assigned to your case and a particularly daunting set of circumstances ensues. Those accused of domestic violence will receive a “No Bond” status until they are brought before a judge. They will be ordered to not have any contact with the alleged victim, which means they may not be able to return to their home or see their family. Also, domestic violence arrests cannot be sealed or expunged from your record unless you are acquitted or the charges are dismissed.
