Domestic Violence related offenses can carry significant consequences for you and your family. In addition, the State Attorney’s Office often times pursues these cases even when the alleged victim does not want prosecution. It is important to know that even if the victim does not want to prosecute, or has changed their story, the State may still be able to go forward based on a 911 call, police officer, or other witness.
A person convicted of an offense involving domestic violence is likely looking at the potential for jail time, and a mandatory sentence that may include required counseling that can last as long as 26 weeks.
Therefore, it is important you have an experienced defense lawyer to advocate on your behalf. Contact us today for a free case evaluation.
