Domestic Assault in Minnesota is a misdemeanor, with a few exceptions. Under Minnesota law, a person can commit domestic assault in one of two ways. One way is when an individual intentionally inflicts bodily harm on a family or household member. The other way is when an individual commits an act that puts the other person in fear of bodily harm.
If you have a prior domestic assault conviction within ten years, you will be charged with a Gross Misdemeanor Domestic Assault.
A Domestic Assault charge or conviction can also result in loss of your right to possess firearms.
Do not speak to the police about your case. The reason for this is that everything you say will be used against you. That is why it is important to contact a Minnesota criminal defense attorney before talking to anyone about your case.
