Domestic Assault can happen within a family, or intimate relationship and it can include such acts as criminal or sexual harassment, threatening death or bodily harm, breach or court orders and/or an actual assault.
Recently these cases have attracted more and more attention and as a result, many times, the police and prosecution are geared towards charge first, ask questions later. In these instances, whether it's a family member, intimate partner, or even a neighbour calling the police, once they get involved, chances are you'll be charged.
This new process was brought in to protect the victims, appropriately so, but unfortunately, the process itself can also be abused. Knowledge of this, can lead some people who are feeling slighted to use the system as revenge. This can lead to charges, jail time and restrictions on your freedom that are unfair and unfounded.
