DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: WHAT TO DO WHEN MISTAKES ARE MADE IN YOUR CASE

Emotions can run high when arguing with a loved one. Whether you are a parent who is trying to come to some sort of an agreement with your teenage son, or you are frustrated and saddened by the recent actions of your partner, it is not unusual for heated conversations to occur in a household.

Real problems can start though — as in criminal charges — when these conversations lead to domestic violence accusations. Whether facing misdemeanor or felony charges, both have potential negative consequences on a person’s life.

In the most basic of terms, domestic violence is a violent interaction that takes place between two or more people who live together. While these charges can stem from interactions between family members — including parents and children, grandparents and stepparents — those not related but living together — such as a girlfriend and a boyfriend — can also face domestic violence charges.

In Las Vegas, these types of charges are taken very seriously. Even a misdemeanor, meaning no weapon was used and the damages were limited, can result in a 180 day jail sentence, in addition to a $1,000 fine.

It is important to note though that just because police arrived and an arrest was made, this does not mean the person accused is guilty of a crime. Police make decisions based on the evidence they have at hand. The officers who respond will typically arrest the person who they believe injured the other. However, throw into the scenario heated emotions where people are yelling and screaming and you certainly have a volatile environment where mistakes can be made.

This is why anyone facing domestic violence charges should contact a criminal defense attorney. Depending on the specifics of the case, and what truly happened the day or night police arrived, charges could end up dropped or greatly reduced. In other cases, a plea bargain may be possible. The first step toward figuring out what makes the most sense though starts with contacting an attorney.

Skillful Defense Against Any Type Of PCS Or Marijuana Possession Charge

My only concern is securing the best available result for each client I serve. I am diligent If you are found in possession of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana, a medication for which you have no doctor's prescription, club drugs or drug paraphernalia, I will present the strongest possible case to show that the drugs were not yours or that the police had no grounds to perform the search that led to the discovery of the drugs.

If the prosecution has compelling evidence in your case, I will pursue every available option in an effort to avoid a conviction on your record. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, it may be possible negotiate 3363 treatment that would allow for your case to be dismissed after you complete court-ordered classes or drug treatment.
