If you have been arrested for domestic battery, you are facing:

  • Going to jail for up to 1 year
  • Paying a fine
  • Being put on probation for up to 1 year
  • Having a permanent criminal record
  • Being deported from the United States if you are not a U.S. citizen
  • Not having any contact with your spouse and children

There are several important things you need to know:

  • You do not have to plead guilty to the charge of domestic battery just because you were arrested
  • You have only a few weeks to provide the prosecuting attorney with information that may prevent criminal charges from being filed against you
  • Even if criminal charges are filed against you, it is sometimes possible to get those charges dropped at a later date
  • If an order has been signed by a judge preventing you from having contact with your spouse and children, that order can sometimes be changed
  • You have a right to a trial and the right to have a lawyer fight for you at your trial

Here are some other important things I will do to help you:

  • Investigate the prosecutor’s case against you by reviewing police reports, witness statements, and videotapes as well as by interviewing the prosecutor’s witnesses
  • Speak with any witnesses you may have that may be able to show that you are not guilty
  • Research the law as it pertains to your case
  • File motions with the judge that may weaken the prosecutor’s case against you
