Attorney David Reyna
Family and Domestic Violence Offenses
Domestic /Family Violence is the direct act of violence against a family member, partner, person you are in a romantic relationship with or cohabitant. Several offenses fall under Domestic Violence:
- Child Abuse
- Sexual Assault
- Violations of Protective Orders
When a call is made that a domestic disturbance is in progress, responding officers can be quick to arrest. These can be emotionally charged calls and not much evidence is needed to place a person under arrest for domestic violence. There can be exaggerated false and malicious charges.
A domestic violence charge can impact many aspects of your life. A domestic violence case is considered a crime of moral turpitude and will be on your record for the rest of your life. If you are charged with domestic violence, the alleged victim can obtain a Protective Order that prevents you from having any contact with the person who made the complaint against you. A Protective Order can have serious consequences. It can make it difficult or impossible to live in your home and visit your kids. It is illegal for a person who has such a restraining order placed on them to possess or own a firearm. Also, if you are convicted of domestic violence, your right to own a gun may be permanently taken away.
Violating a Protective Order is very serious. It’s a misdemeanor or possibly a felony for the first offense. The orders can last from 61 days up to two years. If you are sent to prison or the county jail, it can last up to one year after you get out. A conviction for a violation of a protective order is a Class A misdemeanor or possibly a felony punishable by jail time and additional penalties.
