NYC Domestic Violence and Harassment Lawyers

Shocking statistics reveal that incidents of domestic violence are on the rise. Although domestic violence is commonly thought to be acts committed against spouses or cohabitating romantic partners, it can include acts against members of the same household or non-cohabitating individuals who are in an intimate relationship, or those who have children in common but do not live together.

A few of these types of offenses include:

  • Rape. Rape is considered the act of sexual intercourse with an individual without his or her consent, and is charged in three forms: first degree, second degree, and third degree;
  • Sexual abuse. This can be defined as the act of having sexual contact with another person’s intimate or sexual body parts (including the vaginal area, buttocks, mouth, penis, or rectum), without his or her consent and for the purpose of sexual gratification;
  • Assault. Assault is the act of committing physical harm to another individual and can include the use of a weapon, such as a knife or gun. Like many other domestic violence charges, this, too, is based on degrees — first or second degree — and whether there is direct intent to cause physical harm or injury to another individual;
  • Stalking. Repeatedly following an individual, or communicating with an individual in such a way that makes them fear for his or her safety, can be defined as an act of stalking;
  • Harassment. One of the most common types of domestic violence is harassment, or aggravated harassment, that typically involves the acts of violent physical behavior against an individual such as shoving or striking, or even unwanted communication or contact via written or electronic means (such as e-mail or texting).

Penalties for domestic violence convictions can range from fines for disorderly conduct, all the way to probation or prison for more serious charges. The majority of domestic violence crimes are considered either misdemeanors or felonies, so there is a strong likelihood of a prison term, from a few days or months all the way to up to a lifetime in prison. If the domestic violence charges are sexual in nature, there is also the requirement of being registered as a sex offender.

Whether it’s a charge such as rape, assault, harassment, or even other charges such as disorderly conduct or reckless endangerment, it’s important to know how to effectively handle the legal implications of domestic violence charges. Because domestic violence often affects women and children and can be highlighted in the media, prosecutors may not always get the facts straight in individual cases, and good, effective legal advice can be critical.

If you are facing a domestic violence charge, the knowledgeable staff of Stephen Bilkis & Associates can help you navigate through the many legal hurdles associated with your case. We serve many New York locations, including the Bronx, New York City, Queens, Staten Island, Long Island, Manhattan, and Suffolk, Nassau, and Westchester counties.
