    Angry Spouse charged with Assault2 - DV and has priors, 3 violent felonies already

    Spouse charged with Assault2 - DV and has 3 violent felonies already, 1 is for assaulting a prior wife and the others are violent crimes plus a long list of other offenses to add to it all. They have a very stiff bail on him @ $250,000.00 and of course no where to live IF he could get out on bail. My question is what type of sentencing could he face. I heard it was a class A felony and could possibly get life. It's time he stops beating up on a women & not get away with it. Married over 15yrs, been very controlling and abusive within the past 4-5yrs of it has gotten worse each month, the last 2 times have almost been fatal, 1 by using the "Kill Punch" a martial art move that can be deadly. This last time it was almost like he was trying to kill me. What can be expected.? I need to know so I can get on with what life I have left.

    It is difficult to answer your question with any certainty. First of all, every state has their own minimum sentence requirements, punishments, etc... so not knowing the state would prevent us from making an educated guess. Second of all, these things usually end up settling with a plea bargain. Ultimately it depends on what type of offer the district attorney decides to make him, if any. Even if this goes to trial and he is found guilty, it is up to the judge to determine his sentence which can very significantly from the minimum to maximum penalty.
    I am not a lawyer, this is not legal advice.

    The only way to be sure of your future is to move out and into a SAFE HOUSE for battered woman. The issue is NOT whether this guy gets out on bail tomorrow or out of prison 10 years from now. The issue is insuring your safety. Make some phone calls and get into a safe house. By the way, a good safe house is protected 24/7 by volunteer males, most of which are 6'-5+ and musclebound with martial arts training.
