Choose Adele Drumlevitch for Successful Defense against Domestic Violence Charges
Domestic Violence is the physical, mental, or verbal abuse of a spouse, a child, a family member, or a cohabitant. It can involve outright hitting, kicking, pushing, or punching or even just name calling or intimidation. Domestic violence is one of many violent crimes that unfortunately often go unreported, along with the more underestimated crimes of stalking and intimidation. Due to the nature of the crime, is especially important to find and hire an experienced domestic violence attorney who can competently protect your legal rights if you are accused of domestic violence in Arizona.
Domestic violence is one of the most commonly charged crimes in Arizona. It is very common for spouses and other cohabitants to get into arguments but when these arguments turn violent, the police end up being called and they are then faced with dealing with this problem. Recent years have seen a political backlash associated with domestic violence that has put pressure on police to make an arrest every time they are sent out to the scene of a suspected domestic violence incident.
Emotions are usually running high in these situations. People are upset and may not be ready, to tell the truth about what really happened. The police are left to make decisions based on limited information and they do not always come to the correct conclusions. This is where a Sierra Vista domestic violence lawyer should come in and work to get your version of events out there. Police often decide who to charge by looking to see who seems to have the worst injuries. Of course, this is not always an accurate assumption.
Can A Victim Drop Domestic Violence Charges?
A common misconception in domestic violence cases is that the alleged victim can drop the charges against the defendant. This is absolutely untrue. Just because your spouse or family member wants to take back the accusations they made in the heat of the moment, does not mean that the prosecuting attorney is required to dismiss the case against you. How a domestic violence case is dealt with in Arizona depends on the facts of the case and the strength of the prosecution's evidence. If there are no visible injuries on the alleged victim, their story doesn't add up, and they decide not to cooperate with the prosecutors, it will be a tough case for the government to prove. However, they are in no way required to drop the charges against you. In some cases, there may be a great bodily injury allegation involved in your domestic violence case. This is when it becomes imperative to hire a top-notch domestic violence attorney, who is invaluable in figuring out exactly what to do and how to best defend you in your Arizona domestic violence case right away. If you have been charged with domestic violence in the Sierra Vista, AZ area, call domestic violence lawyer, Adele Drumlevitch to confidentially discuss your case in detail.
