California’s Strict Domestic Violence Laws
In California, law enforcement agencies have made laws stricter than ever. As soon as 911 is called on you for domestic violence, no matter how minor, you can face an arrest or formal domestic violence charges. If no one decides to press charges against you, you can still face an arrest or charges from the state prosecutor. The state prosecutor becomes the sole decider one whether or not to press charges against the abuser.
