A minor argument can sometimes erupt in an emotionally charged environment. If the police are called and one party accuses another of inappropriate touching (pushing, hitting), the accused party will be arrested. The accuser cannot drop the charges under any circumstances. Only the prosecutor can drop the charges.
If you have been arrested for spousal abuse, know the consequences and make sure you have a lawyer who can represent you effectively.
The consequences of a domestic violence arrest and conviction can include bail, a jail sentence, community service, a substantial fine, and a year in a batterers' treatment program. Make sure the prosecutor and the court hear your version of the incident. Select a domestic violence lawyer who has trial experience and the determination to represent you effectively.
