How can you Defend Against Domestic Violence Charges in Denver?


cop-arrestIf you have been arrested and charged with domestic violence in Denver, there is so much at stake. Your relationship with your family, your time with your children, and your reputation are all in danger and if you are convicted, you could face serious consequences and penalties. Luckily, an experienced Denver domestic violence defense lawyer can help build a solid defense against these serious charges. In many cases, your lawyer can have the charges against you reduced or dismissed all together.

In all domestic violence cases in Denver, the burden of proof lies with the prosecution. As such, your Denver defense attorney can build a defense that is designed to expose the weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. This includes bringing any false allegations to light.

What if I acted in self-defense?

This is a common defense against domestic violence charges and one that your attorney could employ to have the charges against you dismissed. If you acted in self-defense, your Denver criminal defense attorney could show that your accuser was attacking you the time of the incident. As long as you did not use more force than was physically necessary to defend yourself, self-defense could be a solid defense.

What if it was an accident?

Accidents do happen, and when they occur during an argument, they can easily be mistaken for domestic violence. If you did not intend to hurt your spouse, then your attorney could use this as a defense against domestic violence charges.

What if they’re lying?

False allegations of domestic violence occur all the time in Denver. If your accuser is lying about the attack, your Denver domestic violence attorney will need to investigate your case closely to expose these false allegations. Fabricating evidence or outright lying about the attack often occurs when spouses or ex-lovers are attempting to gain the upper hand in divorce or child custody battles.

Colorado law enforcement officials and prosecutors take domestic violence charges very seriously. These charges could adversely affect your future and your relationship with your children and your family members. In addition, a domestic violence conviction could come with harsh penalties and consequences, including probation or no-contact orders.
