HAVE YOU BEEN ACCUSED OF:
Domestic Violence involves any chronic threat, physical force or violence between spouses, domestic partners or significant others in a way that injures or endangers that person. This could include behaviors such as hitting, grabbing, choking, throwing things and assault with a weapon. Sometimes, it could include sexual or unwanted touching by one partner to the other.
Although domestic violence refers to a pattern of behavior over time, any single domestic violence charge should be taken seriously. The definition of domestic violence can be vague, and the threshold for making a domestic violence complaint is low. There are often no witnesses other than the accuser and the defendant.
Domestic Violence charges can lead to much more serious charges such as Assault, Rape and other sexual charges. A pattern of undefended Domestic Violence charges can lead to convictions and other personal consequences such as loss of child custody and employment. As with other violent crimes, conviction on these charges usually involves prison time.

You need to be informed of the way these cases are prosecuted so that you don’t incriminate yourself. Most often, these types of cases are difficult for the accused to fully understand. Even if the alleged victim does not want to press charges, the prosecution can still proceed, and you can be convicted against the wishes of the alleged victim.
The prosecution can proceed with a Domestic Violence charge even if the victim does not want to press charges. A domestic violence conviction can lead to serious consequences.
Do not make a statement to any law enforcement officer before you have spoken to a lawyer who can protect you and your rights. An attorney can also discuss with you the advisability of continuing to associate with your domestic partner, spouse or girlfriend. In some cases, continuing this situation creates a serious risk.
A successful defense requires a team of lawyers, not just one working solo. Prosecutors generally do not pursue cases they think they can’t win in trial. This is why it is critical to dig even deeper than the prosecution and inject the reasonable doubt that will let you win in the courtroom if necessary.
