When most people hear the term domestic violence, they often think of a spouse who is abusing another spouse. That, however, is a misconception because in Maryland, being married isn't necessary to face a domestic violence charge. A recent case between sisters highlights this point.
Two sisters got into an altercation in Easton. One of the sisters is facing criminal charges for domestic assault. It is alleged that she injured her sister during an argument. The woman was released on her own recognizance after being taken into custody and having to face the district court commissioner.
