Domestic violence is a serious accusation that entails the intentional use of unlawful force against the victim. While this commonly includes such things as hitting the person, it can also occur in indirect manifestations such as attacking the person’s car with a bat. As long as force is used, an actual injury does not have to occur in order for a domestic violence charge to be brought.
