Your Domestic Violence Attorney in San Diego
Domestic violence is no longer a private affair to be dealt with solely by the individuals involved. It is viewed as a serious crime by judges and prosecutors who do not need a cooperating victim. Even with a victim who wants to recant their story or drop charges, a defense attorney is critical to achieving a favorable result. A variety of charges can fall under the general category of domestic violence, including assault, battery, false imprisonment, kidnapping, sex offenses and stalking. Domestic violence can involve spouses, but also ex-partners or ex-spouses or elderly residents of your home.
A domestic violence conviction can have serious consequences, even for a first-time offender. The state of California considers domestic violence a serious problem. This can result in the aggressive pursuit of a domestic violence case even when the evidence is scant. Sometimes a spousal abuse charge is used as leverage in a divorce or child custody case, or just to get even. A conviction could jeopardize your divorce or custody proceeding, including a one-year long Domestic Violence class, three years’ Probation, possible jail time and prohibiting you from owning a firearm in your own home.
