The Colorado Domestic Violence Offender Management Board (DVOMB) has created standards for individuals that have received a Domestic Violence charge yet have not been sentenced. Per the DVOMB Standards "the purpose of a Pre-Sentence Offender Evaluation is to provide the court with relevant information upon which to base sentencing decisions."
If a Pre-Sentence Offender Evaluation has been performed, once the individual enters a guilty plea, or is found guilty of Domestic Violence, the individual must complete a Post-Sentence Domestic Violence Offender Evaluation.
In some cases, a Pre-Sentence Domestic Violence Evaluation can be ordered to be completed, however, upon sentencing with the criminal justice system, a Post-Sentence Domestic Violence Evaluation will be required.
Domestic Violence Treatment is an open-ended, progress based, treatment. Colorado DVOMB does not specify a certain number of classes to be completed. Domestic Violence Treatment begins with a Domestic Violence Offender Evaluation, which provides treatment recommendations and an initial level of treatment needs.
Domestic Violence Treatment is separated into three levels of treatment (Level A, Level B, Level C). Each level of Domestic Violence Treatment requires a weekly Domestic Violence class and may include a Second Clinical Contact on a weekly or monthly basis.
Treatment for Domestic Violence Offenders is complete upon the mastering if the Domestic Violence Core Competencies, as provided by the DVOMB.
