When The Stakes Are High, Be Prepared To Defend Against Domestic Violence Charges
Allegations of domestic violence are one of the most common causes for arrest. You can be arrested based on allegations, with little or no corroborating evidence. In fact, in South Carolina the law doesn’t even require an actual physical injury in order for one to be arrested and convicted.
If you are convicted of domestic violence, even as a first offense, you will face serious consequences. A conviction will stay on your record, and this may impact you in the future when you search for a new job or a place to live. A conviction for a domestic violence offense will also prevent you from ever lawfully owning or possessing a firearm or ammunition.
It is important to have an attorney to help you navigate the system, which can be confusing and intimidating. It is important to you know your rights.
