Mistakes to Avoid When Facing Domestic Violence Charges
Remember that the police are not there to help you. If you are asked any questions, refuse to answer and ask to speak to your attorney Todd Kawecki.
Do not contact your significant other after being arrested as most domestic violence cases involve a no-contact order as part of your bond. If you are caught speaking with your significant other in any form, you can be charged with a new crime and also be put in jail until the conclusion of your case.
Most Domestic Battery cases are First Degree Misdemeanors punishable by up to a year of probation or a year in jail. Depending on any prior battery convictions, any weapons used or injuries sustained, these charges can become significant felonies and cause you to face years in prison. We have handled hundreds of these types of cases. Let us use our 13 years of experience to protect you.
Documenting any injuries you suffered can be the difference between having your case dismissed or being convicted of Domestic Violence. Make sure the police take photos of your injuries, and if they refuse, then request to take the photos with your phone. Preserving this evidence is incredibly important to your case.
