What starts as a typical argument between you and your significant other can end with you being led away in handcuffs. How can this happen? A phone call by a Riverside neighbor or an accusation from your spouse can result in domestic violence charges.
Law enforcement take this type of charge very seriously, and there is a tendency among officers to believe the alleged victim. Even if the whole thing is a big misunderstanding or a false accusation, you could be charged with and convicted of a domestic violence crime.
Domestic violence crimes can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies. And a conviction of this charge can result in severe consequences, including restraining orders and even prison time. That’s why it’s important to call an attorney as soon as you are arrested or charged. Don’t wait, and don’t speak to the police without a lawyer present.
