Fighting To Keep Your Record Clean!
Drug Charges * Battery/DV * Theft * Solicitation
Battery and Domestic Violence charges can be the most disruptive, difficult charges to fight. These charges can result in restraining orders, marital & domestic violence counseling, anger management courses, and jail time—even when the so-called victim chooses not to press charges. In the State of Nevada, once the police have charged an individual with domestic violence, the state prosecutors will go forward with the charges in nearly all cases.
A conviction for any type of domestic violence charge can have a devastating effect on your employment opportunities, your family law case, and many other aspects of your life, especially if you are faced with incarceration in a county jail, city jail, or state prison. A first time conviction requires a minimum of 2 days to 6 months in jail, a completion of six months of domestic violence/battery counseling, 48 hours community service, and a large fine. A conviction will also stay on your record for 7 years. Penalties increase severely with a 2nd or 3rd charge. It is possible to get a conviction on a false allegation of domestic violence if you do not fight the charges with an experienced attorney, which is why it is important to contact Criminal Defense Lawyer Mark Coburn to discuss your case.
Many battery domestic violence cases arise out of arguments between partners over impending divorces, relationship break-ups, child custody matters, infidelities, or other domestic issues. In some cases, false allegations are made out of anger, resentment, jealousy, or revenge. Because of the emotionally-charged nature of domestic violence cases, you need an attorney who will present your side of the story, defend your rights, and work to ensure that you are treated fairly.
