Domestic violence is an assault or battery perpetrated against someone you live with or a family member. Though many charges of domestic violence are legitimate, there are a disturbing number of baseless charges filed by angry girlfriends or jealous husbands. You may think that a “he said-she said” case would be hard for a prosecutor to prove, but many people have been convicted solely on their accuser’s testimony.
One of the main advantages of having our experienced Fredericksburg criminal defense attorney is that we can effectively reveal inconsistencies in the prosecution’s case and raise reasonable doubt. On the other hand, if you made a mistake, we can work with that, too. A judge may show leniency to domestic violence defendants who display genuine sorrow for their actions and a willingness to change.
Domestic violence is a serious offense under Virginia law. However, a first-time offender may be eligible for a deferred disposition.
Upon successful completion of the court’s requirements, you would not have a conviction on your record. The punishment for domestic violence escalates with each subsequent conviction. If you have two or more prior convictions for domestic violence, your next charge will be a felony, with the very real possibility of substantial jail time. If you are in this situation, you can trust our Fredericksburg criminal defense lawyer to aggressively defend your case.
