Domestic Assault - 2nd Degree { Felony C

2 posts in this topic

My son in law has been arrested once of domestic assault on my daughter and was order to do anger management classes and he would get off probation then but we don't know if he ever was released from probation then again in Feb he assaulted my preg daughter again, choking her and kicking her in the stomach and putting her in premature labor, she never filed charges against him and she has since took him back, which of course I am not happy about but now he is being charged with Domestic Assault - 2nd Degree { Felony C RSMo: 565.073 }, my question what is domestic Assault in the 2nd Degree and what is a felony C and what can he expect.

Thanks,

J*S*
