Complexity of Domestic Violence Cases

Oftentimes, the alleged victim will be interviewed by a victim rights advocate. Before this happens, you need to hire an attorney to discuss your rights and how to ensure they are not infringed upon. When police are called to investigate a situation, they will usually arrest the person they think is the aggressor and take him/her to jail, leaving alleged victim home alone to disturb evidence that police may not have documented.

Arresting officers and jails will often fail to document injuries on the defendant. Having an attorney on your side can help you tell your side of the story and avoid losing everything to a false accusation. A conviction of domestic abuse carries devastating consequences that can follow you around for the rest of your life.

Mandatory Protection Orders in a Domestic Violence Case

Once brought before a judge in a domestic violence case, a defendant will be served with a protection order prohibiting the defendant from further acts that would constitute harassment or intimidation of a witness in the case. This will most often specifically target the alleged victim.

When a protective order prohibits contact, no contact is allowed, whatsoever. This means no contact in person, by phone, in text messages, or third-party contact by passing messages to the alleged victim. Your lawyer has a right to contact any witness in the case. As such, your lawyer can communicate with the alleged victim even if a no contact order is in place. This is a very powerful tool in planning your defense.

Another facet of a no contact protection order requires the defendant to leave the home. Having to temporarily move out of your home is part of a domestic violence case, and is probably the most traumatic because any judicial orders to allow contact or to allow the defendant to move back home will often take 2 to 6 weeks. Some courts even require the defendant to take a class before they will approve modifications to a no contact order.

Domestic Violence Counseling

Attorney Mark Solomon often recommends receiving counseling as soon as possible to allow a court a reason to bring the family back together. You can find out more about available counseling options during your free initial consultation.

Your Gun Rights When Charged with Domestic Violence

A new law in Colorado in 2013 requires that any defendant subject to a protection order in a domestic violence case relinquish possession of all firearms. Some companies will take possession of these firearms for a fee. The Denver Police Department has offered their services to hold guns for a monthly fee per firearm.

Once a defendant is convicted of a domestic violence crime—even a misdemeanor—he/she will be a “prohibited person” from possessing a firearm or ammunition under federal law.
