Avoid a Conviction at All Costs

Any spouse, former spouse, adult blood relatives, or household members can be victims of domestic simple assault.

While a misdemeanor, a domestic simple assault conviction can bring:

  • Up to 1 year in jail
  • Fines of up to $1,000
  • Mandatory domestic violence counseling
  • Mandatory increased court costs

Conviction for a second simple assault charge comes with at least 10 days spent in jail and up to a year behind bars. You need to take such accusations seriously and speak with a highly-qualified Rhode Island criminal defense attorney from our firm to prepare your defense as quickly as possible.

In addition to these penalties, domestic violence charges are more difficult to expunge from your record than other misdemeanors.
