Why It’s Important To Defend Against Domestic Violence Charges
A domestic violence charge can result if there is a dispute between family members or intimate/formerly intimate partners. Often times, police are called in the heat of anger and events are exaggerated when related to law enforcement. The complaining witness often wants charges to be dropped. Sometimes, the victim becomes the accused. It is always in your best interest to seek the guidance and representation of an attorney in order to see that your rights are protected and that appropriate actions are taken.
The reason to have representation is that a domestic violence conviction has long-lasting implications. You may be required to attend a year of counseling and anger management or parenting classes. A protective order can make it difficult or impossible for you to enter your home or see your children. Additionally, you will have a criminal record and not be able to carry or own a firearm, even if that is required for your job. A criminal record can also affect your career, where you aren’t able to get housing or are denied future opportunities.
Act Sooner Rather Than Later When Facing Charges
