Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence Lawyer in Chino

Defending Your Charges

Domestic violence charges are taken incredibly seriously in California. All that is needed to arrest someone under the pretense of abuse is evidence of a domestic disturbance and a witness report. California law does not necessarily leave it up to the alleged victim to press charges, but the decision rests in the hands of a prosecuting attorney. With so little needed to press charges and so much at stake, it is imperative that if you have been arrested, you defend your rights.

As terrible as it sounds, people are wrongfully charged with domestic violence more often than not. People allege that they have been struck or abused if an argument gets out of hand or an ex-spouse can make a false accusation to gain an upper hand in a divorce or child custody proceeding. Domestic violence crimes can carry additional charges as well, such as child abuse or an accusation of an accompanying sex crime.

Allegations against domestic violence may surface for a number of reasons and during many different situations. California Penal code addresses multiple types of domestic violence, including injury to a spouse, elder abuse, criminal threats, and child endangerment. Based on the witnesses, evidence, and statements that are received during your trial, your penalties may vary. Regardless of what you are being prosecuted for, you need to get in touch with a Chino criminal attorney to receive representation after an arrest and accusation of domestic violence.
