Domestic Assault

Domestic Assault

Domestic Assault offences include allegations of physical violence, sexual assault, threats, criminal harassment, and other such allegations against a family member. Domestic assault charges are typically laid against men. The triggering event is often a ‘911’ call from the spouse during a heated argument. These charges are vigorously prosecuted by the Crown Attorney’s Office and often cause tremendous hardship to the whole family.
