When a Client says...."My spouse wants to drop the battery charge against me"

I hear this question often.

The problem is that once you are charged with some sort of domestic violence charge, you are now facing charges from the State, not the alleged victim. As a result, your spouse cannot simply "drop the charges" and the case will go away. Even if your spouse chooses not to cooperate with the State and not testify, the State can still proceed with the case. The State can use the alleged victim's statements made on the day of the incident. The 911 transcripts, photos taken and the statements made by law enforcement that responded to the 911 call can also come in as evidence against you.

There are, however, ways to still combat a domestic violence charge. Feel free to contact us and we can explain what can be done to avoid a conviction.
