Automatic Arrest and Aggressive Prosecution
In many domestic violence situations, the mere allegation of domestic violence results in an automatic arrest. Domestic violence charges are brought by the state, meaning that even if the complainant who makes an accusation wants to recant the accusation and dismiss the case, the case still goes forward. Because the state is the prosecuting party, the complainant has no legal right to dismiss or withdraw a charge. Arrests almost always move immediately to prosecution within a special court division that focuses only on domestic violence cases. The process is fast and aggressive which requires an experienced, aggressive domestic violence lawyer on your side. At the law office of Michael J. Bartee, P.A ., Mr. Bartee will handle your case with the attention and care it deserves.
Consequences of a Domestic Violence Conviction
The consequences of a conviction in a domestic violence case, such as a domestic battery charge, go beyond a jail sentence or probation. Your employment opportunities and the possibility of professional advancement can be limited. You may face a lifetime ban on owning or possessing a firearm, even if you were only convicted of a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence. If you are a noncitizen resident, your legal right to remain in the United States may be lost.
Managing the Case
Upon taking your case, Michael J. Bartee will meet with you to discuss your particular situation. He will conduct a review of the evidence in the case, including police reports, witness statements, and physical evidence. Then, you and he will review the options and decide on a course of action.
