There is no doubt that allegations of domestic violence are extremely serious. Unfortunately, because of the emotional nature of charges like these, many people accused of domestic violence are seemingly treated as guilty before anything is proven.
At Joseph S. Friedberg Chartered in Minneapolis, clients facing felony domestic assault charges will work with an experienced lawyer who knows how to resolve charges like these.
Getting To The Bottom Of Domestic Violence Charges
Here in Minnesota, there is a growing trend that has seen more domestic assault charges be felony charges instead of misdemeanors. That means the punishments for a conviction will be much more severe. They can include:
- Up to a year in jail
- Loss of custody rights
- Being barred from entering the marital home
It is also still true, however, that many allegations of domestic violence turn out to be false and are used to gain leverage during a divorce or other family dispute. Alleged victims can use emotional appeals to jury members, prosecutors and the public to trample over the accused's rights.
That is why it is important to work with an attorney like Joe Friedberg, who can ensure that prosecutors respect the accused's legal rights. With countless acquittals in jury trials, he knows how to uncover evidence (or a lack of evidence) and vigorously defend his clients. He can make sure that people accused of domestic assault receive the fair treatment they deserve.
