Domestic Violence

There is a terrible stigma with a domestic violence conviction. Most people automatically classify you as a “wife beater,” when in reality, things are far more murky. This prejudice against anyone facing a domestic violence accusation is a difficult hill to climb, which is why it is especially important that you hire an experienced attorney to navigate you through this difficult process. The Law Offices of Jason S. Newcombe are here to help.

The “DV” moniker actually is a designation that can be attached to any type of crime that can be committed against another person. It is not simply for assault cases. For example, if a wife pours paint onto the car the husband owns, she can be charged with DV malicious mischief.

Additionally, DV occurs in situations beyond simply between a husband and wife. Criminal acts against siblings, your children, your parents, step-parents, ex-girlfriend, same sex boyfriends, etc., are all capable of being designated as domestic violence.

Domestic ViolenceMost DV cases can be quite tricky. Emotions run very hot due to the relationships, and if the parties wish to continue to interact, a criminal charge can have serious consequences, including a no-contact order, domestic violence treatment classes, and loss of fire arm rights. Beyond that, many cases boil down to a he-said she-said type of situation, which comes with its own issues.

A common misconception with DV cases is the thought that the “victim” is controlling the case. In reality, once the police get involved, the government is in control. Prosecutors regularly proceed with cases even when “victims” are not cooperating. There are many examples of when this is a very good policy, but unfortunately, there are also just as many situations where it is not proper.
