Helping You Avoid A Conviction
Domestic violence cases are among the most defensible cases that the district attorney brings against a person. This is due to the frequency with which victims and non-cooperating victims retract or refused to testify. Often, a domestic violence charge can be dismissed or reduced to avoid the negative impact of a domestic violence conviction.
There are options available to reduce the potential charges you are facing. If the charges are reduced, a defendant can avoid the mandatory conditions of probation for domestic violence. In addition, the individual can avoid a federal lifetime ban on owning, possessing or buying firearms. In addition, since certain crimes of domestic violence may be aggravated serious crimes or crimes of moral turpitude, which may lead to deportation, denial of naturalization or exclusion from the United States, pleading for a reduced charge may help avoid the negative immigration consequences.
However, the most attractive result when facing a domestic violence charge is an acquittal after a jury trial. The defendants will have erased their name and put themselves in a position to obtain a judicial declaration of factual innocence. If granted, the factual innocence certificate will seal the arrest record and the defendant’s charges for three years. Subsequent to these three years, the defendant’s arrest record and charges arising from the false accusation of domestic violence will be destroyed.
