If you have been accused of domestic assault, you should immediately find legal representation. At Shaw Law Group, PLC in Grand Rapids, Michigan, we have defended the rights of men wrongfully accused of assault crimes.
Aggressive Prosecution of Domestic Violence Charges
Emotions can get the best of people in highly charged situations. Michigan statutes that prohibit the victim from recanting the accusation will not work in your favor. Prosecutors are aggressively pursuing domestic violence cases. The attorneys at Shaw Law Group, PLC can match that aggressive approach with their own hard work and tenacity.
No Opportunity to Recant
Many times a domestic violence accusation occurs during a divorce or custody hearing as a way to gain advantage in those matters. A false accusation is made and you find yourself being arrested. Even if your spouse wants to recant the accusation, she cannot. Once the charges are filed by the state, it is the state's case against you, not the purported victim. They will continue to prosecute the matter with or without the help of your spouse.
A domestic violence conviction has immediate and long-lasting ramifications. If convicted, you are looking at a jail sentence. After you have served whatever sentence the court imposed upon you, you could lose your right to carry a firearm. The stigma of a domestic violence accusation and conviction could follow you for the rest of your life. Your rights are at stake. Let the attorneys at Shaw Law Group, PLC defend those rights.
If you have been accused of domestic violence, time is of the essence. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please contact Shaw Law Group, PLC.
