Domestic Violence Arrests in Miami
Every couple argues, it is a simple fact of life. When those arguments escalate, things can quickly turn from a private matter to the police knocking at your door. Being arrested for a domestic violence charge can throw your entire life into turmoil, not just your relationship. Often, people that call the police on their partners do not realize the severity of doing so. What begins as a simple argument ends with criminal charges. These criminal charges can lead to a conviction, the potential of jail time, and fines, outcomes neither party wants for the other.
When someone is arrested for domestic violence, a stay away order is put in place to prevent the parties from contacting each other. It is imperative to comply with this order and any other conditions the judge might place on the person arrested. If any of these conditions are breached, the individual arrested for domestic violence risks violating the conditions of their bail and returning to jail. If the victim of domestic violence does not want the state attorney case to prosecute the case, contacting a criminal defense lawyer is the best way to have the stay-away order removed or modified.
It is important to note that if you have been the victim of domestic violence, the defendant cannot force you to help in their efforts to get their case dismissed. This includes the person who has been accused and their attorneys. If you feel that an abuser or their attorneys are not respecting your wishes or are unfairly harassing you, contact the State Attorney’s office and report this behavior. Your safety is our greatest concern.
