If you are facing an allegation of Domestic Violence, the consequences could be dire. Do you know that a misdemeanor simple battery charge will be considered high and aggravated if the alleged victim is a family member, is pregnant or over 65 years old? When an officer responds to an incident of alleged family violence in Cobb County, Fulton County, Dekalb County, Cherokee County or Gwinnett County, the officer may make an arrest even if the alleged victim asks the officer not to do so. In certain situations, you could be facing up to 5 years in jail for a misdemeanor family violence charge.
Allegations of domestic violence are taken extremely seriously in Atlanta, Marietta, Lawrenceville, Canton, Decatur and surrounding areas. Many counties have special victim units to prosecute domestic violence cases. Police officers, prosecutors and judges are reluctant to drop your charges. Arrests are made many times without regard to what really happened. You could be prohibited from contacting the person you love including your own children and could face jail time, probation, a lengthy restraining order, counseling, anger management, fines and high court costs and probation fees.
