DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

If you or a loved one has been charged with a domestic violence crime, it is important to speak to a defense attorney as soon as possible regarding your case and your options.  Because the courts take domestic violence seriously, you may be facing severe and even mandatory penalties.  Such penalties may include:

  • JAIL TIME
  • PROBATION
  • COMMUNITY SERVICE
  • COMPLETION OF A BATTERERS' INTERVENTION  
    PROGRAM ("BIP") AND/OR AN ANGER MANAGEMENT
    PROGRAM
  • NO RETURN TO CERTAIN LOCATIONS
  • NO CONTACT WITH THE ACCUSER
  • OTHER PENALTIES

 

Sometimes the accuser wants to press charges, and sometimes he/she does not want to press charges.  Even if the victim does not want to press charges, the State (prosecution) can still press charges, using other evidence against the defendant and can force the victim to come to court and testify against his/her will.  You should discuss your case with a defense lawyer to make sure you are properly defended and to decide how best to proceed.
