Domestic violence allegations are among the most frightening, disheartening and in some cases embarrassing allegations that an individual can face. Even if no actual violence occurred, being arrested and charged with a domestic violence crime can cause you to be removed from your house and taken away in handcuffs, sometimes in front of your children and neighbors. This can have a profound negative impact on your reputation, even if you are eventually acquitted or the charges are dropped.
Unfortunately, there are some instances in which such a circumstance is simply unavoidable. If you are accused of domestic violence, police may end up arresting you, even if the evidence against you is minimal or circumstantial. This is because domestic violence accusations are serious matters, and they are treated as such by Florida law enforcement officials. However, you are innocent until proven guilty, and you still have rights under the law, even if you are accused of domestic violence.
It is extremely important that you take any domestic violence allegations as seriously as law enforcement officials will. A conviction can disrupt your entire family, and can even prevent you from contacting your children via phone or even online messaging services. This is why it is crucial to take action as quickly as possible.
