It is very critical when you are accused of domestic violence that you retain the services of an experienced criminal defense law office. In most domestic violence cases, the prosecution’s main witness is the “alleged victim” who is someone very close to the defendant and often does not want to prosecute the defendant.
Unfortunately, once the police are contacted and an arrest has been made, the alleged victim no longer has control over the criminal prosecution. The case will proceed to the court phase and it is the district attorney’s job to go forward with the case, whether or not the “alleged victim” wants this to happen.
Let Jimenez Law Offices help you, and your loved ones, in this critical time.
