Columbus Domestic Violence Lawyer
Have You Been Charged with Domestic Violence or Assault?
With an increasing media awareness of domestic violence within homes, law enforcement and courts alike are working tirelessly to put offenders behind bars, pursuing the strictest penalties available. Domestic violence is defined as the knowing and willful attempt to cause harm to those within their immediate family or other household member. This can include physical harm or the use of threats to induce fear of imminent harm.
As domestic violence occurs usually within the walls of a home, other than the alleged victim, there is usually never a witness to the crime. Litigating crimes of this nature is difficult as it often falls into a gray, murky area of the law. Incidents of supposed domestic violence often happen in the heat of the moment, and can even be used as a weapon. Once a charge of domestic violence is made it is no longer in the hands of the accuser to pursue the charges, but rather completely up to the prosecutor. Many times, the accuser makes an accusation in haste and wishes to withdraw the allegation, but by then it is simply too late.
If you are in a situation such as this, it is vitally important that you do not hesitate to contact a Columbus domestic violence attorney as quickly as possible.
