A first offense charge of this nature would normally be charged as a class D offense, which is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 364 days in jail and a maximum fine of $2,000.00.

You can expect that a portion or all of any jail sentence imposed by the court will be suspended but you’ll be required to spend a period of 2 years probation and you’ll have to successfully complete Maine’s Certified Batter’s Intervention Program, which is a 48 week program.

In addition, you’ll be required to pay for the program, which will cost you about $1,200.00.

The penalties for a Domestic Violence Assault charge increase dramatically if you’ve ever been convicted of a crime of Domestic Violence or you’ve ever been convicted of the crime of Violating a Protection Order.

Under this scenario, the state of Maine will charge the crime of domestic violence assault as a class C felony, which carries maximum penalties of up to five years in prison and a fine of $5,000.00.

A term of probation would also be included as part of any felony sentence imposed by the court.
