Spousal Abuse Offenses
Being accused of domestic violence in the state of Pennsylvania cannot be taken lightly. Many of the accusations of domestic abuse made in the state are nothing more than spiteful allegations that are hastily made without thinking of the repercussions.
Unfortunately, law enforcement officers don't see it this way, and when a call to the police is made and domestic violence allegations accompany it, an arrest will almost always follow. Domestic abuse is defined as a pattern of abusive behaviors that are performed against one partner in an intimate relationship by the other.
Couples that are married, dating, cohabitating, or anything else are all susceptible to state and national laws related to domestic violence charges. Domestic violence can manifest in many forms, including physical aggression, verbal threats, emotional abuse or negligence, stalking, economic deprivation, and intimidation.
However, allegations of domestic violence often do not reflect the true conditions of such a circumstance, as defined above. Therefore, when you have been accused of this type of criminal offense, it will be imperative that you immediately align yourself with our firm.
According to the law, domestic violence is not limited to clear-cut signs of abuse. In fact, many of its manifestations can take shape in behaviors that are less than easy to identify. Allegations of criminal coercion, trespassing, unlawful imprisonment, endangerment of any sort, and kidnapping could all potentially fall under the classification of domestic violence, and some of these are exceedingly difficult to prove or disprove.
No matter what the circumstances of your case may be, you should not wait to obtain a criminal defense attorney that can work to protect you against the consequences that will be incurred if you are formally found guilty and convicted of the crimes for which you have been accused.
