A family violence crime, in addition to its other elements, “contains as an element an act of family violence to a family member and shall not include acts by parents or guardians disciplining minor children unless such acts constitute abuse.” (CGS § 46b-38a (3)) In Connecticut, “Family or household members” are spouses, former spouses, parents and their children, people age 18 or older related by blood or marriage, people age 16 or older either living together or who have lived together, people who have a child together whether or not they are or have been married or have lived together, and persons in, or have recently been in, a dating relationship (CGS § 46b-38a (2)) Police respond to violent incidents involving family members. In responding to a family dispute, a police officer finds no cause to arrest, the officer must remain on the scene until the threat of violence has been eliminated (CGS § 46b-38b).
Police officers who respond to a family violence incident must complete a family violence offense report whether or not an arrest is made.
A domestic or family violence charge is a difficult experience for anyone to be put through. But everyone accused of domestic violence is not guilty.
