Domestic Violence Offenses in St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and Tampa

Domestic Violence Offenses in St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and Tampa
Domestic violence offenses include a category of crimes by one family or household member against another family or household member.

Domestic violence offenses are very aggressively pursued in the Tampa Bay area and throughout the state of Floirda. By law, there is a pro-arrest and pro-prosecution policy in these types of cases.   For most first offenders, and particularly in misdemeanor situations, these cases can usually be resolved through a diversion program with some counseling as a requirement.  Of course, the accused person must be willing to accept responsibility and undergo the prescribed condtions.  If that is the case, and the condtions of diversion are successfully completed, the case will be dismissed.  This type of resolution may not be as readily available in felony situations, particulary when the case is charged as a felony due to injury or the use of a firearm.  A person charged with a domestic related offense should also be aware that there are some limitations on his or her ability to expunge the record and the consequences for a non-United States citizen can be utterly devastating.
