What You Need To Know About Domestic Violence Charges
Strangers cannot accuse you of committing a domestic violence offense; a spouse, significant other or someone you are dating can. You can face charges for actions that include:
- Emotional abuse or intimidation
- Punching, kicking or hitting
- Sexual assault or another violent criminal offense
- Holding or using a weapon to threaten a partner
If you are convicted of a domestic violence offense in Arkansas, your personal and professional life could be affected. Your parenting rights could be restricted. Your criminal record could limit your job options. You could face time in prison and lose your firearm rights forever. These are serious consequences.
Protect Your Case From Day One
If you receive an order of protection while accused of a domestic violence offense, it is critical that you obey the terms of the order. Protect your domestic violence case from day one by stopping all forms of communication with the individual who has filed the order. Violating the order can only add to your legal headaches.
