Domestic Violence False Imprisonment

Domestic Violence

Often when the police arrest someone for domestic violence they will also tack on a charge for false imprisonment.  False imprisonment is defined as impeding the movement of another person.  So holding someone down, or blocking their exit from a door could be charged as false imprisonment.  Like domestic violence, a charge of false imprisonment carries stiff penalties.  The one advantage to the charge, however, is that it doesn’t carry the mandatory penalty of a 52 week batterer’s treatment program as do charges for domestic violence.
