If you are arrested for conduct or an incident involving domestic violence, you may be charged with a Class A Misdemeanor or even a Class 4 Felony if you have a criminal history that includes prior convictions for domestic violence.

If you have prior convictions resulting in a Class 4 Felony charge you may be sentenced from one to three years in state prison and a maximum penalty as high as $25,000. Other penalties may include mandatory counseling, anger management classes, and probation.
