In recent years, California laws regarding domestic violence have undergone several changes. The office of the District Attorney is now aggressively prosecuting all reported incidents of violence in the home. Today, such crimes are prosecuted even in cases where the victim refuses to press charges or recants initial claims of abuse. In many cases, prosecutors will file charges against alleged abusers in the absence of victims or witnesses. The penalties for domestic violence can range from probation and anger management/battery counseling for first-time offenders, to felony charges and incarceration in severe cases. If you have been arrested for domestic violence, contact a competent attorney specializing in this area immediately to protect your rights.
