In recent years, California laws regarding domestic violence have undergone several changes, in response to the People v. OJ Simpson trial evidence and other political pressures. The offices of the District Attorney or City Attorney are now aggressively prosecuting all reported incidents of violence in the home, and prosecuting such crimes even in cases where the victim refuses to press charges or recants initial claims of abuse. 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, or batterer’s treatment counseling programs for first-time offenders, to felony charges and incarceration in more severe cases, or where the reported injuries were more severe.
