Domestic violence is a serious accusation. Once the police become involved, the case is out of your hands. It is not up to the alleged victim to decide whether to press charges and the prosecution likely will still pursue a case against you even if the victim does not want to.

It is important to keep quiet (except for providing your information) regarding the incident, as anything you say at that point could be used against you. Instead, ask to contact your lawyer. By having a criminal defense lawyer to represent you from the onset, your chances of not having charges filed or of an acquittal are much better.

If you are accused of domestic violence in the state, you may face felony or misdemeanor charges. Domestic violence includes spousal abuse, neglect, emotional abuse, physical abuse and sexual abuse. The penalties for domestic violence may include fines, counseling, anger management, jail time and a state prison sentence.

If you have been accused of a violent crime, such as mayhem, torture, or aggravated assault, it’s crucial to speak with a lawyer right away. You can trust your case will be aggressively prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law so it’s important to equip yourself with an equally tough defense. At Haley Law Firm, LLC, we can ensure your case is given the attention and dedication it deserves, and that you are aggressively defended from the beginning stages of your case until the very end.
