Dallas Domestic Violence Charges Targeted
A continuing series in the Dallas Morning News highlights Dallas Domestic violence cases. Domestic violence is a serious issue that has tragic effects on entire families. Every year we see more and more efforts to educate the public on domestic violence. We have also seen a greater effort among law enforcement to arrest and prosecute domestic violence cases.
Law enforcement has found that one way of preventing domestic homicide cases is by making arrest in any complaint of domestic violence. If the Dallas Police are called out on a domestic violence call they will make an arrest or issue a warrant for an arrest most of the time. The police don’t have the time or man power to investigate the past history between the individuals or whether the accusation is credible. Their goal is to make an arrest and to prevent the immediate threat for further violence.
A Dallas Domestic violence charge can be a life changing event. It can prevent you from seeing your children, from getting a job, or from renting an apartment or home. Just because an arrest was made doesn’t mean there is evidence to convict. There are false domestic violence charges made every day. If you find yourself facing these types of charges you need to consult with a Dallas domestic violence attorney as soon as possible. An experienced criminal attorney can advise you on how to protect your valuable rights. Your case needs to be evaluated so that you can be advised on the best way to proceed with your case.
