Married couples, dating couples and domestic partners often find themselves in conflicts that flare up to the point that one partner calls the police and makes allegations of domestic violence. Sometimes the accuser recants soon afterward, and the couple wants to reconcile and put the incident behind them. After the police have been called, however, a domestic violence case is no longer a private matter. It is now a concern of the state and charges will most likely go forward.
Conviction of even just a first offense of alleged domestic violence can result in up to a year in prison and a $4,000 fine for the named offender. The convicted person may lose the right to possess firearms. A criminal record may cause problems for years, whenever a person applies for a job, applies for housing or for any reason has a background check performed.
