What Are Some Defense Strategies for a Domestic Violence Charge?

Although no one expects they will be put into this situation, a domestic violence charge can be life-altering. A domestic violence charge is a challenging accusation to overcome. An experienced attorney can offer their client hope and a defense strategy that may result in reduced or even dismissed charges.

Some common domestic violence defense strategies include:

  • Self-defense. Self-defense is one of the most successful legal strategies for a domestic violence charge. If you have been accused of domestic abuse after acting in self-defense you may have a defense in your case.
  • False accusation. You are being accused of a crime you did not commit.
  • Accident. The injury was the result of an accident, not an attack.
  • Malicious. The alleged victim is trying to influence a divorce or custody matter.

An attorney who specializes in criminal defense has a goal to reduce the damage to your life and your future. An attorney will help with a case dismissal, reduced sentence, reduced charge, or full acquittal in court. An attorney can make all the difference with your chances in court and when you are facing domestic violence charges you cannot take any chances. The penalties for domestic violence in Colorado include a mandatory domestic violence evaluation with treatments, classes, and therapies, mandatory protection orders, fines and fees, loss of firearms, and jail time. This is not a charge to take lightly and it is important to have an attorney involved as soon as possible.
