If you have been arrested for domestic battery, you are facing:
- Going to jail for up to 1 year
- Paying a fine
- Being put on probation for up to 1 year
- Having a permanent criminal record
- Being deported from the United States if you are not a U.S. citizen
- Not having any contact with your spouse and children
There are several important things you need to know:
- You do not have to plead guilty to the charge of domestic battery just because you were arrested
- You have only a few weeks to provide the prosecuting attorney with information that may prevent criminal charges from being filed against you
- Even if criminal charges are filed against you, it is sometimes possible to get those charges dropped at a later date
- If an order has been signed by a judge preventing you from having contact with your spouse and children, that order can sometimes be changed
- You have a right to a trial and the right to have a lawyer fight for you at your trial
