Witness intimidation is described in the California Penal Code Section 136. In that section, the law makes it a crime to knowingly and maliciously prevent or dissuade a witness or victim from giving testimony at a trial, proceeding, or inquiry authorized by law. In a domestic violence case, it is a crime if one of the parties tries to prevent or dissuade the other from making a report to a police officer, or any other authority, or from making a complaint about the abusive partner or seeking his or her arrest.
