A person charged with a Domestic Violence (“DV”) offense in Arizona faces dire consequences. Specifically, the designation may be added to offenses ranging from Domestic Homicide down to a Class 3 Misdemeanor. Arizona Revised Statute §13-3601 is a comprehensive statute defining and classifying DV offenses. Indeed, DV is a designation put onto specific crimes based on the relationship between the defendant and victim. However, DV is not in and of itself a crime. Rather, a designation.
