In recent years, domestic violence has been thrust into the spotlight due to an increase of violent incidents and the media attention they attract. Law enforcement and prosecutors, in an attempt to lower the number of domestic violence incidents, aggressively investigate and prosecute those who are charged with domestic violence crimes. Even if the injured party refuses to press charges, or later wishes to withdraw their claim, the prosecutor may still choose to seek a conviction.
Depending upon the circumstances of the alleged incident, and evidence against you, a domestic violence charge may often be accompanied with other criminal charges, such as:
• Assault and Battery
• Spousal Rape
• Sexual Assault
• Criminal Trespass
• False imprisonment
• Restraining Order Violation
