Is Domestic Violence a Felony in Kansas?

It depends on past convictions and whether the charge is considered domestic battery or aggravated domestic battery. Domestic violence for first and second-time offenders is typically classified as a misdemeanor, with penalties ranging in varying jail time and fines. However, if an individual has been previously convicted three or more times of a domestic violence offense, within a period of five years, then the charge is a felony. Similarly, if the individual is charged with aggravated domestic battery, they could be facing a felony conviction. That's why it's imperative you consult with an attorney from Garretson & Toth, LLC.

Dedicated Legal Representation

Aggressive representation has always been a pillar of our firm's practice. Our Olathe domestic violence lawyers understand, however, that cases involving domestic violence often entail complicated issues that require deft and delicate legal work. As many of these domestic violence cases are fraught with fresh and turbulent emotions, wrongful and false accusations are common. In addition, intimate relationships greatly complicate matters and a close investigation of the victim and accused are essential to extracting the truth. Domestic violence allegations are a prime example of how the American legal system and personal lives can collide, and it takes meticulous legal work to clearly establish innocence.
