Domestic Violence Injunctions

Injunctions And Convictions | Domestic Violence Charges Are Serious

A wide range of situations can result in a domestic violence charge. Maybe your situation involved a verbal threat against a girlfriend. Perhaps an argument with a spouse got out of control and authorities were called.

The Consequences Of A Domestic Violence Conviction

A domestic violence arrest carries strict consequences. A misdemeanor conviction can result in hefty fines, up to one year in jail, probation and community service, and loss of your concealed weapons license. Felony or aggravated assault convictions are much more severe. You could face prison time of more than one year, probation and a restriction of certain everyday rights; including your right to vote and possess a firearm.

In many situations, a restraining order may prohibit you from having any contact with the alleged victim or your children. Obtaining the help of a criminal defense attorney who knows the laws and procedures and can help mitigate what you will face is crucial.
