Orange County Domestic Violence Lawyer
If you were arrested for domestic violence, you are going through a tough time. You likely need an Orange County Domestic Violence Lawyer, or spousal abuse lawyer, to protect you and guide you through the process you’re facing. Related charges are:
- Child Abuse
- Elder Abuse
- Husband Abuse
- Spousal Abuse
- Willful infliction of bodily injury upon a cohabitant
- Vandalism, or destroying utility line (i.e., ripping a phone from the wall)
Prosecutors often rely on the psychological phenomenon known as “battered woman’s syndrome”, when explaining why they will not drop or reduce charges when the alleged victim requests that they do so, or when he or she refuses to testify. In some cases, prosecutors will file charges against alleged abusers in the absence of victims or witnesses. That is why it is so important to have an Orange County Domestic Violence Lawyer on your side.
The penalties for domestic violence can range from probation and anger management classes or the state batterer’s treatment counseling program for first-time offenders to felony charges and incarceration in more severe cases, or where the reported injuries were more severe.
