On Behalf of | Jul 25, 2019 | Domestic Violence |

There is no doubt that domestic violence allegations can lead to a slew of negative consequences. Not only can these allegations result in an arrest and conviction, with fines and a criminal record, but it will also result in disfavor in the community. People could be forced to leave their home and find another place to live. They might be obligated to stay away from the alleged victim of the abuse. Although these charges are serious, that does not mean that a person who was charged should simply accept the allegations and the penalties without formulating a strong legal defense. This could be the difference between a conviction and an acquittal.

According to recent reports, a 61-year-old man was arrested for domestic violence after an incident with his disabled wife. Law enforcement officials were called at approximately 10 p.m. According to the investigation, the man allegedly punched his wheelchair-bound wife in the face. The woman, 66, was taken to the hospital with a broken nose. She was in bed at the time. The extent of her injuries was unknown. The man was accused of being extremely drunk when this occurred. It is not known what sparked the altercation. The man faces charges of cruelty to an elderly person and aggravated battery. These are felony charges.

When it comes to domestic violence, anger, frustration and emotions could spark an unfortunate incident. There could have been intoxicating substances at the root of the problem. A combination of disagreements could have gotten out of control. When a person is charged with felony domestic violence, it is critical to understand what path can be taken to defendant against the charges.

Despite the alleged severity of the recent incident and the accusations, the suspect should still think about the future and plan to deal with the domestic violence charges.
