Domestic violence is a huge problem in our society. Millions of women and men are seriously injured or killed because of spousal abuse every year. Make no mistake. Domestic violence is a very serious charge with serious penalties. If you have been convicted of domestic physical abuse or violence within the past ten years, you can face mandatory jail time for new offenses. If you have had three or more convictions for domestic assault, you could face up to thirty years in jail.
If you have been arrested for domestic abuse, it is critical to hire an attorney who understands how serious your case is. At the Law Office of Ernest J.
