If you have been charged with a misdemeanor crime, don?t think that it is insignificant because of its name. Misdemeanor convictions are serious matters that may affect the rest of your life! Sentencing for Misdemeanor offenses usually include the possibility of serving time in jail. In addition to jail, you may also be required to perform community service hours, pay court costs, fines and fees, pay restitution to the alleged victim, be placed on probation, participate in drug and/or alcohol monitoring, and many other potential sentencing ramifications specific to the crime that you have been charged with.
At The Law Office of Cheryl A. Miller, P.C. we believe that you are innocent until proven guilty and we will fight for your rights.
Domestic Violence involves an act or threatened act of violence against a person with whom you are or have been involved in an intimate relationship. If you have been charged with a criminal act and the court finds that the underlying factual basis includes an act of domestic violence, in addition to the sentencing for that crime, the court will probably order that you complete a domestic violence treatment evaluation and program. The cost of the program will be paid by you. Typically, the program lasts for 36 weeks. Most commonly, Domestic Violence charges are associated with the following offenses:
- False Imprisonment
- Violation of Protection/Restraining Orders
- Sexual Assault
Having a Domestic Violence conviction on your criminal record may impair your ability to obtain employment, keep your current employment, and obtain housing. Other complications may also be possible.
If you have been accused of a crime against a person or against a business, you very likely have also been served with a Restraining/Protection Order which generally requires that you have no contact with the individual or the entity. Additionally, the Restraining/Protection Order may prohibit you from possessing any firearms and may contain a multitude of other restrictions.
If you violate the terms of the Restraining/Protection Order, you have committed a separate criminal offense with very serious consequences including jail. Thus, do not guess at the meaning of the provisions of the Restraining/Protection Order.
Our Firm can help you understand the conditions of your Restraining/Protection Order, advise you on how to comply with the Order and avoid violating the Order, and, when appropriate, assist you in modifying the Order.
Don't blindly plea to a charge of this nature without first obtaining the appropriate legal advice. If you have been charged with a crime that includes Domestic Violence, call The Law Office of Cheryl A. Miller, P.C. today.
