Domestic violence cases range from the simplest misdemeanor restraining order violations to serious violent felonies. Depending on a person’s criminal history and what kinds of evidence the prosecution has — such as a cooperative victim or other witnesses, photographs of injuries and/or statements by the defendant — the prosecution may charge the case either as a misdemeanor or a felony. In California, these cases almost always carry harsh penalties such as a staggering 52 week domestic violence counseling class at the rate of once a week for two hours per week, jail/prison, community labor if probation is granted, up to thousands of dollars in fines, and very serious immigration consequences.
Although it may be hard to believe, California punishes even the simplest restraining order violations with these same penalties. Child Abuse and Endangerment crimes also carry the same harsh punishments as above, but require a child abuser’s treatment program rather than domestic violence counseling if probation is granted.
As former criminal prosecutors, Perlmutter & Pourshalimi have handled many domestic violence cases and know the best strategies to win your domestic violence case. Because domestic violence cases usually happen in the home, these cases are typically “he-said-she-said” and very difficult for the prosecution to prove beyond a reasonable doubt at trial. Don’t hire just any lawyer to defend you against these charges. You need aggressive trial lawyers with our expertise to win your case.
