About Spousal Abuse
Spousal Abuse is defined is any physical violence inflicted against one’s husband or wife, or any sexual act that is committed against the will of one’s spouse. Spousal abuse charges can also be filed when a husband or wife commits emotional or financial abuse against their spouse.
It’s rare when a person is only charged with spousal abuse. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your arrest, you could be charged with more than just spousal abuse. If a weapon was used to inflict violence or intimidate your spouse, you could also be charged with spousal battery; if the abuse was committed in front of a child, you could be charged with child endangerment or child abuse; if you forced, manipulated, or coerced your spouse into engaging in otherwise non-consensual sexual activity, you could be charged with spousal rape, sexual battery, or sexual assault; if you threatened to inflict violence, so much so that your spouse believed physical injury was imminent, you could be charged with assault or aggravated assault.
