WHEN LOVE TURNS VIOLENT

Most couples learn to resolve their differences or even end their relationships without resorting to violence.  Sometimes, however, even good people gets so stressed out and feel so overwhelmed that they lose it even for a moment and strike out at their partner in a physical way.

Depending on the nature of the violent act, the prosecutors can charge it either as a misdemeanor or a felony.  A class A misdemeanor assault means that one person caused bodily injury (or pain) to their partner.  If the person used a deadly weapon, then it is a felony assault.  If the person choked their partner or restricted their breathing, then it is also a felony.  No matter the level of the criminal offense charged, you can expect the court to order you out of your home and have no contact until the case is resolved with your partner or spouse.

The Harris County District Attorney’s Office has a Family Criminal Law Division that focuses solely on domestic violence.  The prosecutors immediately call the alleged victim to get their statement as to what happened.  The prosecutors lock in the emotional stress of the event by obtaining their immediate statement.  However, facts tend to change and the importance of the incidence significantly lessens frequently after a short cooling off time.

The best way to resolve the case is by first talking with a criminal defense attorney.  Houston Criminal Lawyer Jim Sullivan will consider the merits of your case and give you an honest evaluation.  He will aggressively defend you.  His legal fees are affordable, reasonable and fair.  You can call Jim Sullivan right now at 281-546-6428.
