What you should know about domestic violence.

This society has a major interest in limiting violence between domestic partners. Generally, judges and law officers view domestic violence (DV) as a crime of the utmost seriousness in Texas. DV covers all types of domestic injuries, threats of physical violence and unwanted physical contact. To secure a DV conviction, the state's prosecutor must show that the offending party acted intentionally. If the violent incident in question led to physical injury, the prosecutor typically must demonstrate that the injury was directly related to DV.

The different ways a person can be abused

A person in Texas or anywhere else does not need to be physically harmed to be the victim of domestic violence. It is possible for an individual to be abused sexually, financially or emotionally as well. It is important to note that a person does not need to experience a major injury to be a victim of physical abuse. Unlike physical abuse, emotional abuse may be difficult for a person to recognize.

Elements of assault and battery in Texas

In the state of Texas, the same elements apply to both assault and battery cases. A person commits assault if he or she makes contact with another individual with an intent to injure him or her. It may also be assault if a person makes contact with another in a manner that would reasonably be expected to cause harm. Someone who threatens to harm another person or his or her family member could also be charged with a crime.
