Domestic Violence Charges

SC Criminal Defense Attorneys Will Help You Fight Domestic Violence Charges

 Domestic Violence cases are far from uncommon in criminal law courts. These types of cases are frequent enough that the consequences and penalties for a domestic violence offense have become harsher.

Even though many claims of domestic violence are legitimate, some claims can be exaggerated, baseless, or simply filed out of spite. Filing a domestic violence charge requires little evidence, and cases can get pushed through court even if the person who pressed charges decides to drop them.

What is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence charges includes various harmful acts inflicted by one member of a household on another, including but not limited to:

  • Physical abuse (including pushing or shaking)
  • Threats
  • Coerced or forced sexual contact
  • Verbal abuse
  • Public humiliation
Being convicted of CDV can have an effect on you professionally.  If you are convicted of domestic violence, you will lose your right to carry or possess a firearm, which for law enforcement and members of the military can end your career.

What Happens if I’m Found Guilty?

Conviction of a domestic violence case can have severe consequences, which  can include:

  • Imprisonment
  • Lost child custody or visitation rights
  • Large fines
  • Mandatory community service
  • Counseling or anger management classes
  • A permanent mark on your criminal record
