There are many types of crimes that fall under this category, some of the most common crimes charged in a domestic violence case are:
- Assault IV
When the police are called to a domestic situation, it is almost a certainty that someone is going to be taken into custody, as it is usually a “mandatory” arrest situation. During this time it can be incredibly difficult to remain silent, but it is important that you do. Many times someone will want to explain their side of the story—be certain that anything you say will be used against you.
Pay attention to what agency investigates the incident and where you must appear in court. The city of Wilsonville is in two separate counties: Clackamas and Washington. It is generally a good idea to hire a criminal lawyer that is knowledgeable with the procedures, customs, and norms in the county that you must appear in.
Many courts have a deferred sentencing program, but this is very specific to every situation, and the history of the individual. Other than a court offered program, the conviction(s) usually comes with a variety of penalties, including: probation, classes, jail or prison time, consequences to firearms rights, and financial penalties.
