Domestic Violence and Child Endangerment Charges Dismissed
Our client Monica was charged with Domestic Violence and Child Endangerment. Generally speaking, people who are convicted of Domestic Violence charges are required by the Court to attend a 52 week Domestic Violence Class. Additionally, people who are convicted of Child Endangerment charges are required to attend a 52 week Child Abuse Class.
In this case, we were successful in demonstrating through aggressive representation that our client was engaged in legal self-defense when her boyfriend and her boyfriend’s daughter attacked her.
On the eve of trial, we offered to resolve this matter for one Misdemeanor count of disturbing the peace.
Disturbing the peace is a crime generally defined as the unsettling of proper order in a public space through one’s actions. This can include creating loud noise by fighting or challenging to fight, disturbing others by loud and unreasonable noise (including loud music), or using offensive words.
Our client resolved the matter for a reduced charge. By doing so, she avoided the mandatory program requirements explained above.
At KIA LAW FIRM, we strive to get your case dismissed. Alternatively, we will also strive to reduce your charges so that the collateral consequences of pleading guilty or no-contest are minimal.
