Charges of Corporal Injury on a Spouse Can Be Filed for a Wide Range of Things
If you have ever gotten into a physical altercation with your romantic partner and it leaves even the slightest mark, it could end up with a charge of a corporal injury on a spouse. This can be charged for everything from cuts to concussions, from bruises to sprains, and even injuries that occur due to suffocation.
In the event that the prosecution can prove you inflicted these injuries purposefully and were not acting in self-defense, you could end up facing felony charges. The consequences could include years in state prison – even if it is your first offense.
Your Spouse Cannot Necessarily Drop the Charges
In the event it was all a misunderstanding and your spouse decides they do not want to press charges, this is does not necessarily affect the case. It is up to the prosecutor whether charges should be filed and if the charges should be dropped. Just because your spouse decides they do not want charges filed does not mean that the prosecution is not going to continue with the case.
