California Infliction of Corporal Injury Charges and Penalties
What is Willful Infliction of Corporal Injury?
Willful infliction of corporal injury is most commonly referred to as domestic violence and/or strangulation. It is defined as any person who willfully inflicts corporal injury resulting in a traumatic condition upon a victim who is the offender’s spouse or former spouse, cohabitant or former cohabitant, fiancé or fiancée, or someone with whom the offender has previously had an engagement or dating relationship, or the mother or father of the offender’s child.
Traumatic conditions mean a condition of the body, like a wound, external, or internal, including but not limiting to, strangulation or suffocation caused by physical force. Strangulation or suffocation is impeding the normal breathing or circulation of the blood of a person by applying pressure on the throat of the neck.
How is Wilfull Infliction of Corporal Injury different from Domestic Violence?
Willful infliction of corporal injury is specifically a wound, external or internal, that involves impeding the normal breathing or circulation of the blood of a person by applying pressure on the throat or the neck. Domestic violence refers to other acts of violence toward a family member.
What is the Punishment for Willful Infliction of Corporal Injury?
The punishment for willful infliction of corporal injury can vary.
A person found guilty of willful infliction of corporal injury is guilty of a felony and can be imprisoned for two to four years, with a fine of up to $6,000.00, or both.
If the person has been convicted of certain crimes like battery or sexual battery within the last seven years before conviction of willful infliction of corporal injury, they can be imprisoned for two to five years, a fine of up to $10,000.00, or both.
In some cases, probation can be granted, but the court has discretion as far as if probation can be granted as well as the parameters surrounding that probation.
