Domestic assault and battery involve acts of violence between individuals who are dating, related by blood, or related by marriage. Oklahoma considers domestic assault and battery charges to be predicate offenses. The first offense may be charged as a misdemeanor if no aggravating factors are present, but a second or subsequent offense will be charged as a felony even if the victim suffers no serious injury. You will be required by the court to have an attorney represent you.
