Domestic Violence Disturbances In Arizona
Unfortunately in Arizona, domestic violence disturbances are common occurrences and once law enforcement is called and dispatched to investigate, it can trigger a series of implications that cannot be readily undone.
In Arizona, the law specifies that domestic violence is any act that is dangerous to children, spouses, domestic partners, parents, relatives, or anyone who the accused has or shares a domestic relationship or household with.
The following actions or circumstances are considered domestic violence offenses:
- Physical Assault:
- Other means of causing physical injury
- Verbal threats
- Engaging in threatening gestures or conduct
- Recording or watching a relative or household member without consent
- Damaging property
- Sexual abuse
- Physical abuse
- Manslaughter, murder, or homicide of a relative or household member
There are times when an officer may arrest or charge someone who did not, in fact, commit a crime. The accused may be removed and barred from returning to their home, face serious penalties, and suffer other life changing repercussions.
