What You Should Know
People who are accused of domestic violence often have misconceptions about the criminal justice system.
- Do not assume that the prosecution will drop your charges because your spouse or significant other does not want you to be prosecuted.
- The prosecution may compel the presence of the alleged victim at trial by subpoena.
- A domestic violence conviction may result in many collateral consequences that you have not considered. Your conviction may be used against you in a child custody dispute or may impact your time sharing with your children. If you apply for a job, your conviction may be discovered as a result of a criminal background check.
