Domestic violence cases involving weapons or injury are often prosecuted as felonies.
If convicted as a felony, the defendant could serve time in state prison. If convicted as a misdemeanor, the punishment could be as much as 6 months in jail and a fine of up to $4,633.

Often, this will be the defendant's own home.
