WE PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS AGGRESSIVELY!
If you have been accused of domestic violence in the Fresno, CA area, you could be facing serious penalties if convicted. Unfortunately, in marriage breakups and other relationship problems, false accusations of domestic abuse are far too frequent. In other cases, the individual accused of the crime may have been trying to defend themselves against a physical attack. We understand that just because someone has been accused of domestic violence does not necessarily mean that they are guilty.
Domestic Violence statutes are the source of more false accusations than other type of offense. There is also a bias against men when it comes to alledging charges. These facts have been used by angry wives, ex-wives, girlfriends, and ex-girlfriends to obtain revenge for wrongs real and imagined by boyfriends, step-fathers, etc. And when you are charged with domestic violence, the entire world turns against you. In most cases, you will be separated physically from your spouse or mate, and you may lose custody of your children. You will be fighting for your job and your financial independence. It is critical to have an experienced domestic violence attorney to ensure that your rights are protected and that immediate action is taken to defend your case.
Law enforcement may also be called to the scene of a domestic incident. In this case, they may arrest you on the spot, and the information they put in their police report can affect you negatively. It is up to knowledgeable criminal defense attorney Scott Levy to expose any any false information contained in the report.
Domestic Violence covers a wide range of abuse, including spousal abuse and child endangerment. Any threatening or violent act, even if the accused did not intend to harm or compromise the safety and security of the victim, could be grounds for prosecution under the California Domestic Violence laws. A skilled and experienced Fresno criminal defense attorney can help with your Domestic Violence case, and it is vital that you find a lawyer that you can trust, and one who you truly believes your story and will be there to defend you to the end.
Can the victim drop the charges?
The law regarding domestic violence is complex and highly specialized. In the state of California, you can be arrested and prosecuted for domestic violence even if the victim does not want you arrested. In some cases, especially with spousal abuse, it is very difficult for the victim to drop charges against the abuser. The prosecutor can proceed with the criminal case even if the alleged victim decides not want to go to court. An experienced attorney in these types of cases can successfully defend those who are accused of domestic violence and take advantage of jail alternatives such as counseling and probation.
