Domestic Violence

http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSX1a_C0UiV2M2UP53oGXDjcqoUNVlMC14GUkk8aFSC3227bzVkVg Domestic Violence includes behavior involving violence, threat of violence or conspiracy to commit a criminal offense when committed by one cohabitant against another.  A cohabitant is; an emancipated minor (under 18 and married) or a person 16 years or older and is or was a spouse of other party, is related by blood or marriage to other parties, resides or has resided with other party, or has a child in common with the other party, is the biological parent of the other’s unborn child.  Cohabitant does not include the relationship of parent to minor or relationship of minor siblings to each other.  Domestic Violence can include: assault/aggravated assault (includes assault against a pregnant female), homicide, harassment/telephone harassment, all kidnapping/unlawful detention, mayhem, sexual offenses, stalking, child abuse, property offenses, possession or threat of a dangerous weapon with intent to assault or scare the other person, discharge of a firearm, or protective order violation.

Domestic violence cases can either be felonies or misdemeanors. When deciding how to charge DV cases, the Weber County Attorney’s Office looks at a number of different factors including the nature and severity of the crime, the extent of injury to the victim, the involvement of any weapons, the criminal history of the people involved and, the use of any drug or alcohol, and other aggravating and mitigating factors.

Domestic Violence comes in a Variety of Forms:

Physical Violence: hitting, pushing, choking, scratching, pinching, restraining, slapping, pulling, hitting with weapons or objects, shooting, stabbing, damaging property, pets, or threatening to engage in such aggressive behavior.

Psychological Violence: Intense and repetitive degradation, creating isolation, or controlling the actions or behavior of another person through intimidation or manipulation.

Sexual Violence: Sexual harassment, limiting reproduction freedom, infliction of pain during sexual intimacy, or the use or threat of physical force to make a cohabitant perform a sexual act.

Emotional Violence: Undermining or attempting to undermine victim sense of worth example: constant criticism, belittling victim's abilities and competency, name-calling, insults, put-downs, silent treatment, manipulating victim's feelings and emotions to induce guilt, subverting a partner's relationship with the children, repeatedly making and breaking promises

 

Economic Violence: Making or attempting to make the victim financially dependent.  Maintaining total control over financial resources including victim's earned income or resources received through public assistance or social security, withholding money and/or access to money, forbidding attendance at school, forbidding employment, on-the-job harassment, requiring accountability and justification for all money spent, forced welfare fraud, withholding information about family running up bills for which the victim is responsible for payment.
