If you threaten or physically harm another person in your household, you may be facing domestic violence charges, as well as additional possible charges.

Oftentimes, a domestic violence charge is a misdemeanor, but after two convictions the penalties can be increased and it can escalate to a felony. If you are convicted of domestic abuse, you will likely be punished by a class 1 misdemeanor. If it is a second offense or a subsequent offense, you may be facing a class 6 felony.
