Sacramento Domestic Violence Attorney
Protect Your Rights. The Law Office of Jonathan Gonzales Fights for You.
Domestic violence refers to violent acts committed against a family member, such as a spouse, partner, child, or parent. The family member does not necessarily have to live in the same household. Anybody in a romantic relationship can be a victim, whether the parties involved are married, living together, or simply dating. Same-sex and heterosexual couples are equally at risk for a domestic violence accusation.
Domestic violence arrests are typically made when a neighbor or bystander makes a call to the police. These charges can also be used as leverage in family law proceedings. It is important that your Sacramento criminal defense lawyer take the time to investigate your unique situation in order to build an aggressive case that protects your rights.
Aggressive Defense Against Domestic Violence Charges
Domestic violence is often defined as a separate crime from assault and battery. This means that someone who physically harmed their child or partner may be charged with domestic violence.
The charges will vary based on:
- The victim's injuries
- If a restraining order was violated
- If a minor was present
The sentences for crimes of this nature can be harsh. Jail time, restraining orders, mandatory counseling, and more may be required and can permanently affect your reputation. Call the Law Office of Jonathan Gonzales at (916) 318-5177 immediately to fight the charges against you.
