The Laws Governing Domestic Assault in RI

Title 11, Section 5, Chapter 3 and Title 12, Chapter 29, Section 5 govern domestic assault law in Rhode Island. In Rhode Island, the only way to be charged with the crime of felony domestic assault is if you have been previously convicted of two prior domestic violence crimes and your third domestic violence crime is domestic assault. If you receive a fine, suspended sentence, or sentence including incarceration on a crime involving domestic violence, this is considered a conviction in Rhode Island. The only domestic violence crime that does not fall within this general rule is domestic disorderly conduct.

If you are charged with a domestic violence crime, contact The Law Office of Thomas C. Thomasian, Esq..
