Domestic Violence In Palos Verdes Estates, CA
California domestic violence laws state that it is illegal to use physical force or make threats of harm against an intimate partner. An intimate partner includes a spouse, former spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend, former girl- or boyfriend, someone you date or used to date, same-sex partner, a person you live and have an intimate relationship, or used to live and have an intimate relationship, or someone with whom you have a child. In other words, if you have, or have ever had, romantic feelings for or an intimate relationship with someone and then become involved in any kind of force, you could be charged with domestic violence charges, and not just simple battery.
Because so many victims of domestic violence make accusations of violence against a spouse or partner, only to take it back at a later time, most district attorneys offices in California have a special unit dedicated to prosecuting domestic violence. Even if the accuser recants, the prosecution will generally pursue the charges, anyway. And, if you are convicted of domestic violence, most counties impose jail time, even for first-time, misdemeanor offenders.
Domestic Violence – PC 13700
Domestic Violence is defined as “abuse committed against an adult or fully emancipated minor who is a spouse, former spouse, cohabitant, or a person with whom the suspect has had a child or is having or has had a dating or engagement relationship.” (California Penal Code, Section 13700)
The definition of abuse can include:
- Physical Abuse
- Verbal Abuse
- Abusing Trust
- Sexual Abuse
- Emotional Abuse
- Psychological Abuse
- Economic control
- threats and intimidation

Other terms for domestic violence include:
- Corporal Injury of Spouse
- Corporal Injury of a Cohabitant
- Domestic Abuse
- Spousal Abuse
- Violation of Penal Code 273.5
Examples of Domestic Violence
PC 273.5 says that it is illegal to inflict “corporal punishment” that results in an injury, no matter how slight. That means if you strike another person who is, or was, an intimate partner, and leave a mark, you have violated PC 273.5 and can be charged with domestic violence.
PC 243 (3)(1) makes it a misdemeanor crime to use force against an intimate partner. In this case, a visible injury is not necessary, just the act of force.
Corporal Injury Charges – PC 273.5
Corporal injury, or more specifically “corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant,” is defined by California law as “willfully inflicting a physical injury that causes a 'traumatic condition' on an intimate partner.” Let's define a few of these terms, to understand better what could be considered corporal injury.
Who Qualifies as an Intimate Partner?
- A spouse
- A Former Spouse
- A Cohabitant (someone you live with)
- A Former Cohabitant (someone you used to live with)
- A Boyfriend (including same-sex boyfriends)
- A Girlfriend (including same-sex girlfriends)
- A Fiance'
- A Former Fiance'
- The Parent of Your Child
In other words, anyone you have had a romantic or intimate relationship with, at any point, for any length of time, would be considered an intimate partner.
What is considered a “physical injury?”
- Any Injury That Leaves a Mark, Such As A Bruise Or Cut
What is a Violation of PC 273.5?
Penal Code 273.5 reads: "(a) Any person who willfully inflicts corporal injury resulting in a traumatic condition upon a victim described in subdivision (b) is guilty of a felony, and upon conviction thereof shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or four years, or in a county jail for not more than one year, or by a fine of up to six thousand dollars ($6,000) or by both that fine and imprisonment.

Assault and Battery Charges
Assault and battery are often used together, which might lead you to think that the two charges are the same, or, at least, two parts of a single charge. But, the truth is much more complicated than that. While the two are related, and you could be charged with both, they are two distinct and separate crimes.
Battery Charges – PC 242
Battery is defined as the willful, unlawful use of force against another person. This is a violation of Penal Code 242 and must have three separate elements:
- The act must be willful and unlawful
- Force or violence is used
- The willful use of violence or force is used against another person.
In other words, you have to intend to use force or violence, it has to involve another person, but it doesn't have to actually cause any damage, injury, or harm. In fact, you don't even have to touch the body of the other person, in order to be guilty of battery. If you touch anything that is “intimately connected” to the other person, like their clothing or something they are holding, in a disrespectful or rude way, you could be charged with battery.
Assault Charges - PC 240
The crime of assault doesn't require any physical contact. You may have heard, or even used, the phrase, “He (or she) assaulted me!” in a situation where someone was actually hurt by physical violence. However, assault is not necessarily an attack of any kind, but merely the attempt to make unlawful contact with the intent of doing harm.
There are three components of assault:
- There must be an unlawful attempt
- There must be ability
- There must be another person upon whom violence or injury was threatened or attempted
“Attempt” means that someone tried to do something; not that they thought about it or wanted to, but that they tried.
Assault With a Deadly Weapon - PC 245(a)(1)
The crime of assault doesn’t require any physical contact to actually take place. To be charged with assault, one need merely attempt to harm someone else and have the ability to do so. The charge Assault With a Deadly Weapon (ADW) the basic assault need only be accompanied by any weapon that could be considered “deadly.”
PC 245(a)(1) reads: "Any person who commits an assault upon the person of another with a deadly weapon or instrument other than a firearm shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or four years, or in a county jail for not exceeding one year, or by a fine not exceeding ten thousand dollars ($10,000), or by both the fine and imprisonment."
A person could be charged with “assault with a deadly weapon” if he or she uses any weapon that could reasonably be considered dangerous or deadly to attempt to harm another person, even if the other person is not actually harmed.
Deadly weapons include:
- Dangerous Animals
The charge of assault with a deadly weapon is what is called a “wobbler” in California. This means that it can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances. Felony charges carry much more serious penalties than the misdemeanor version, including up to four years in a state prison.

PC 1275 Holds in Palos Verdes Estates
Penal Code Section 1275.1 states that if there is probable cause to suspect that the money or property being used to post bail may come from criminal activity, bail will not be accepted. This is called a 1275 Hold.
Any person who plays a part in the arresting or prosecution process can place the PC 1275 Hold on the bail. This means that they believe the money being used to bail a person out of jail comes from illegal activity. The money may be believed to come from drug dealing, gang-related activities, embezzlement, theft, or extortion. Any of these activities would make the money that came from them ineligible for paying bail.
If a1275 Hold has been placed on someone's bail, a hearing will be held to determine whether or not the money that will be used to pay the bail is, in fact, from illegal sources. In order to prove that the money is “clean,” a person will need to bring bank and credit card statements, bill payment statements, car payment information, tax returns, and proof of income to their PC 1275 Hearing.
