Charged with Domestic Violence?
Family violence is a subset of assault that involves an intimate partner or family member. These cases are taken extremely seriously by prosecutors and judges. Defendants charged with domestic violence are less likely to receive personal bonds, and more likely to face onerous conditions if they are released. Additionally, prosecutors are less likely to offer good plea deals for these cases.
The penalties for family violence can be severe, especially when they include a “family violence finding”, which can restrict your rights for the rest of your life, and enhance future charges from a misdemeanor to a felony.
Family violence cases can be among the most difficult and time consuming cases for an attorney. It’s also the type of case that can have the widest range of outcomes. Do not leave your family violence case in the hands of an attorney that is not paying attention to your case. Attorney Rob Chesnutt will give your case the attention it deserves so that you get the best outcome possible.
