Domestic Violence Charges Require Serious Representation
Domestic violence is a serious criminal offense that if successfully prosecuted can result in significant penalties including possible jail time as well as dramatic reductions in your freedom. At S. Patrick Dray, PA, I have been helping clients for over 20 years with domestic violence charges. I have accumulated a vast amount of experience that has allowed me to become a certified criminal trial attorney by the state of Florida, a recognition of my dedication and knowledge of my work. While the bulk of my clients are criminal defendants, I do also represent victims in domestic violence cases as well. Come to my Miami office and meet with me if you need my help.
The Possible Penalties For Domestic Violence Can Have Severe Impacts
For those accused of or charged with domestic violence, the potential consequences that you are facing cannot be taken lightly. You will likely have already begun to see the reputational harm that domestic violence can cause, which will only become more apparent if you are convicted. Your personal life may become more difficult if you have a conviction for domestic violence on your criminal record, as potential employers may deny you based on your record or you may be denied your preferred housing choice.
If you are convicted of domestic violence, you will face up to one year in jail along with a potential $1,000 fine. Alongside that, you will lose your right to carry concealed firearms. You will also face a domestic violence injunction and a restraining order against you. Additionally, you will be required to complete the Batterer’s Intervention Program, which is a six month course that you must attend for several hours a week and pay for out of your own pocket. Failure to complete this course or being absent will result in a probation violation and can land you back in jail.
