Domestic Violence Cases
Domestic Violence cases are some of the most devastating cases there are. They often lead to a person being removed from his or her home, and losing the ability to have any contact with their loved ones. Almost all Domestic Violence cases include an order of protection restricting contact between the person charged, and their family. Sometimes a person is prevented from contacting their children, even when the children were not victims, and were not even present during the incident which triggers the criminal charges. Violating the order of protection is very serious, and may result in charges of Criminal Contempt which may result in jail time.
You may be charged with a Domestic Violence incident for conduct as simple as damaging property of a family member. The following are a list of some, but not all of the crimes that may be considered Domestic Violence:
- Aggravated Harassment
- Criminal Mischief
- Unlawful Imprisonment
