Factors to Consider in Getting a Domestic Violence Charge Dropped
When we evaluate a case in a consultation, there are some initial questions we have for the prospective client. How many people were present to witness the alleged battery? Does the victim want to cooperate with the State Attorney’s office? Were there injuries? Was the incident caught on camera? Are the victim’s allegations so outrageous that they’re unbelievable? Most cases are determined based on the various answers to these important questions. The key is knowing how to use the answers to these questions at the right place and the right time to get the best outcome.
Importance of Getting Domestic Violence Charges Dropped
Everyone wants their criminal case dismissed. When it comes to domestic violence charges, there is an additional incentive to get the case dropped. Unless a domestic violence case is dropped, it cannot later be sealed or expunged from a defendant’s criminal record. This means the record will be public permanently! Reasonably, people who have been arrested for domestic violence look forward to the day the arrest can be removed from their criminal history. And the only way to ensure you qualify to have the arrest taken off a criminal history is to have the case outcome be a dismissal.
