Domestic Violence Charges

A domestic violence conviction can have an enormous impact on your personal and professional life. Even if you are not facing incarceration, the conviction may require anger management, alcohol classes, marital counseling, a restraining order, and other consequences. The penalties depend on the specific charges, which can vary widely.

Possible charges in a domestic violence incident may include:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Violation of a protective order
  • Criminal threats
  • Disturbing the peace

Penalties for Domestic Violence Conviction

Domestic violence charges can either be filed as misdemeanors or felonies. In California, your relationship with the alleged victim in a domestic violence case will dictate the punishment by law (in the event of a conviction).

If convicted, you have the possibility of facing severe penalties that may include a sentence of extensive time in county jail or state prison. Other penalties can include mandatory counseling and even fines.

For this reason, you should never speak to the police or provide statements until you consult with a Pasadena domestic violence lawyer to ensure that your rights are protected.

Our Approach to Domestic Violence Cases

If you are arrested for domestic violence charges, you should not talk to anyone before speaking with your attorney. Often times, people try to proclaim their innocence, but law enforcement officers and police know how to use such declarations against the accused, engaging them in unexpected conversations and obtaining statements, which out of context, will be used against them.

We can immediately make attempts to have the person released from custody with either a bail reduction, being released on their own recognizance, or contacting a reputable bail bondsman to assist in immediate release. We can also address any emergency protective order which the police may have executed at the arrest site.

In preparing your case for court, we will put the prosecutors to their burden of proving their case beyond a reasonable doubt. If they don’t have the evidence against you, or if the witnesses are unavailable (thereby violating your constitutional right to confront and cross examine the witnesses against you), or if it was a case of self-defense, we will be fully prepared to fight for your rights!

We're ready to take proactive action against these allegations. Contact us today to request a free case evaluation.
