Domestic violence generally defines the crime of assault where the victim is a current or former spouse, parent, child, any person with whom the defendant has a child in common, a present or former household member, or a person who has or had a dating or engagement relationship with the defendant.

A police officer can arrest you for domestic violence even without a warrant.

Examples of domestic violence charges:

I defend clients against domestic violence charges such as:

  • Violating orders of protection
  • Assault and aggravated assault
  • Stalking
  • Harassment
  • Aggravated harassment
  • Menacing
  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual misconduct
  • Spousal abuse
  • Excessive corporal punishment
  • Reckless Endangerment

A domestic abuse conviction can mean a criminal record that will follow you for the rest of your life. That is why it is essential to have an experienced criminal defense attorney that can protect you from false charges and protect your legal rights. If you have been accused of committing domestic violence call me first, Attorney Glenn Roderman.

Restraining orders

If you have been charged with a domestic violence crime, it’s likely that a restraining order or protective order has also been filed against you. You may still be issued a restraining order or injunction even if you are not arrested. Violating one of these orders can result in jail time, even if the restraining order was issued in response to false allegations. Respecting and understanding the order will only help your case. An aggressive defense against any domestic violence charge is your best chance at a dismissal.

It can be very stressful to be accused of domestic violence, even if the charges are false. Contact my office today to schedule a free appointment to discuss your domestic violence case.
