Stalking and Domestic Violence in Lawrenceville

Criminal Defense Attorney Serving All of Gwinnett County

Domestic violence is a form of violence or abuse which occurs between people with the following relations:

  • Family members
  • People who live together
  • Spouses
  • Ex-spouses
  • People with a mutual child

Often domestic violence occurs when one spouse or partner tries to dominate the other, either emotionally or physically with assault. Spousal rape, physical abuse, emotional abuse and child abuse are all forms of domestic violence.

Understanding the Crime of Stalking

Stalking is the crime of following, contacting or watching a person with the intent of bothering or harassing that person. In Georgia, a simple stalking charge is a misdemeanor, with a county jail sentence of up to 12 months. Aggravated stalking usually involves the violation of a restraining order and is a felony offense, with a penalty of up to 10 years in state prison as well as a fine of up to $10,000.]

Domestic violence and stalking are both serious criminal offenses whether occurring in Lawrenceville, Gwinnett County or anywhere in the state. Accusations of either crime will likely leave the accused with a restraining order against him or her, even while the case is still in progress and a verdict has not yet been reached. This is particularly harmful when the allegations of spousal abuse, child abuse or stalking are actually false accusations spurred from anger or revenge.
