In Michigan, the penalties for domestic violence charges are steep. Accusations of domestic abuse are taken very seriously among prosecutors and within the court systems. While the concern is absolutely necessary, sometimes individuals who may not be guilty of any real legal charge can find themselves entangled by these laws.
Michigan law also includes certain penalties for any abusive conduct that takes place within a relationship, regardless of whether the individuals are legally married. If the person making allegations received serious injuries that required medical attention, penalties steepen.
