Evidence showing physical harm, such as pictures of bruises, broken bones, lacerations, or contusions are not necessary in a domestic violence case; something as simple as a statement from the complaining witness that he or she is in physical fear of their life and/or safety could justify a domestic violence charge. For example, if a husband were to threaten to punch his wife if dinner isn’t ready when he gets home, then that would be considered harassment in the second degree, which would count as a domestic violence charge.
