Domestic violence in New York may be charged in several different ways. Assault, sexual abuse and strangulation are just a few crimes that can be involved in domestic violence.
Second-degree assault occurs when a person intends to cause physical injury to a domestic partner and ends up hurting the person, either with or without a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument. Sometimes one person in a domestic relationship may sexually assault or rape his or her partner. Sexual abuse is subjecting a person to sexual conduct without their consent.
