Domestic Violence Bonds
Domestic violence is a charge of assault that is treated more seriously than standard misdemeanor. It's a thorny category of the law since many circumstances can lead to this charge, including fights fueled by alcohol or drugs.
Because these charges can result in mandatory jail sentences if convicted, being able to mount a defense is critical.To give you the chance to prepare your defense, at Better Bail we'll ensure you don’t spend the pre-trial period behind bars.
Domestic Abuse Charges in Florida
The severity of a domestic abuse charge in Florida depends on the discretion of the arresting officer and the judge, as well as the testimony of the alleged victim.
Most domestic charges are misdemeanors and can include threats or threatening conduct, misdemeanor assault, or destruction of property. More severe allegations that can result in a felony domestic charge include serious assault, attempted murder, sexual assault or rape, or kidnapping.
If enough evidence or testimony is found for a domestic abuse charge, the defendant will normally be given the chance for bail; however, more conditions may exist than a standard bond. As the court’s priority is victim protection, the accused may be placed under a restraining order and required to live away from the family home.

Sentencing for Domestic Abuse Charges in Florida
Misdemeanor domestic abuse charges can lead to a minimum sentence of five days in the county jail in Florida. Note that time spent in pre-trial detention is not eligible for time-served credit, and to avoid jail time, it is best for the accused to plead guilty and be eligible for probation and community service.
Penalties for domestic abuse escalate with future convictions, with the possibility of a year in prison for successive offenses. A repeated attacker can be charged as a felon and spend up to five years in state prison. Using a firearm in a domestic abuse case, even if it's never fired, has a minimum sentence of ten years in state prison.
Bonding Out of Jail on Domestic Abuse Charges
First-time offenders are granted bail for less than $2500, including a restraining order. If found guilty of repeated abuse, the bail is higher, up to $10,000 for misdemeanors. Felony domestic abuse charges can result in bail set at $100,000 or more, especially if a firearm is involved. A registered bail bondsman can set up a Surety Bond with the court for a small percentage of the overall bond paid upfront. Call The Better Bail!
