What Constitutes Domestic Violence
In Massachusetts, domestic violence charges can stem from a number of situations. Any form of physical abuse can lead to a Domestic Violence charge. If there has been an attempt to harm another or there is fear of imminent physical harm, a Domestic Violence charge can be pursued. Also, forcibly making another engage in sexual activities, either by threat or physical force, is a form of Domestic Violence.
Whenever police respond to a Domestic Violence charge, they will arrest anyone they believe to be the abuser. The matter will be in the hands of the district attorney after this arrest takes place.
