Reno Domestic Violence Lawyer
Solid Defense Strategies for Serious Charges
Many people aren't aware of it, but Nevada's prosecution of domestic
violence is incredibly intense and officers have very little discretion
in how they approach the situation. In Nevada, when the police arrive
at the scene of domestic dispute, an arrest is almost always made.
- In addition, any of the following can be tried for domestic battery in Nevada:
- Family members
- Former dating relationships
- Former roommates
Consequences of a Domestic Battery Arrest in Nevada
Unless there are mitigating circumstances, an officer will always make
an arrest, and much of the time they aren't looking for mitigating
circumstances. This includes situations where the victim doesn't want
the aggressor arrested.
Like with other criminal charges, if a prosecutor thinks he can prove the
case, they have to move forward. There's a mandatory minimum of six
months of anger management for a conviction in addition to losing the
right to possess firearms. It's worth pointing out that if there's
any offense that involves grabbing an individual by the neck, the charge
jumps up to a felony for domestic strangulation.
Because of the aggressiveness of prosecution in these cases, it's imperative
to look to an experienced advocate.
