Domestic violence is a crime that can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the circumstances involved in the case. Individuals facing criminal charges for felony domestic violence in Arizona can face significant jail or prison time, and those accused of misdemeanor domestic violence can face large fines, probation, counseling requirements or short jail sentences if convicted. Under Arizona law, domestic violence is defined as the use of physical, emotional, psychological, sexual, or monetary abuse by a partner or family member in order to exert authority over another individual. Even if a violent act resulted in little to no injury, an offender can still be arrested and charged with domestic violence in Arizona.
