Wisconsin Laws And Statutes Regarding Domestic Violence
Domestic violence in Wisconsin is an intentional act of physical violence, injury, pain, illness or sexual assault that threatens someone you are close to. This can be a spouse, ex-partner, someone who lives with you or someone you have children with.
Under Wisconsin law, domestic violence acts as an enhancer of other charges brought against you. This means that a crime involving an intimate partner carries more penalties than the same crime involving someone you do not have a relationship with.
For example, domestic violence may enhance the penalties of crimes such as:
- Sexual assault
