Domestic Violence Charges in Beverly Hills

Beverly Hills Criminal Lawyer Fighting Physical, Sexual & Emotional Abuse Charges!

One of the most serious crimes a person can commit is that of domestic violence. When domestic violence is committed, it hurts not only the victim, but any children, family, or friends related to one or both parties. Children are especially vulnerable to second-hand harm as a result of domestic violence. But domestic violence is also one of the hardest crimes to prove and certain situations must be met in order for an arrest to be made.

Accusations of domestic violence can be made by an outside party, such as a neighbor, who has little or no knowledge of what really occurred within the home of the accused party. Also, accusations can come from your spouse or partner if they upset in any way. About a decade ago, it used to be necessary for an officer to witness domestic violence before making an arrest. This may have changed, but there at least one of the following conditions must be met for an officer can make an arrest for domestic violence:

  • Probable cause that domestic violence was committed
  • The suspect and the victim are in a domestic relationship
  • The accused act falls under the definition of domestic assault
  • There is reason to believe further abuse will occur if no arrest is made, and/or there is evidence of physical injury
  • The incident was reported within 28 days of the act

If you have been charged with domestic violence, but do not fall into any of the above categories, make sure you have the aid of a Beverly Hills criminal defense lawyer to fight your false charges.
