Domestic Violence

Domestic violence and domestic abuse crimes cases can vary, and can include any of the following:

  • Assault and Battery
  • Criminal Trespass
  • Harassment
  • Reckless Endangerment
  • Restraining Order Violations
  • Sexual Assault
  • Spousal Rape
  • Stalking
  • Kidnapping
  • False Imprisonment

Almost all of the above charges can be filed as felonies or misdemeanors, creating the possibility of the defendant being sent to either county jail or state prison.  Therefore, it is important for everyone involved in a domestic violence or domestic abuse case to know that once the police are called, the complaining party does not have the ability to “not press charges” or ask the police or the prosecutor to drop the charges.  In fact, once the police are called out to a situation of domestic violence, the police will arrest someone if there is any sign of an injury, such as a bruise or skin discoloration.  The complaining party becomes the alleged victim, and the prosecutor solely determines whether to file charges.

If you have been arrested or charged with domestic violence, you need an experienced attorney on your side.  Contact the skilled attorneys at the law office of James P. Cooper III, PLC today to discuss your options. We look forward to speaking with you.
