Criminal Defense of Domestic Violence Charges

Domestic violence, sometimes referred to as domestic battery or domestic abuse, is a serious criminal charge in North Carolina. Some examples of domestic violence charges are:

  • Assault on a Female
  • Simple Assault
  • Sexual battery/assault
  • Communicating Threats
  • Stalking
  • Strangulation
  • Violation of Domestic Violence Protective Order
  • False Imprisonment

Domestic violence charges can oftentimes be the result of a misunderstanding. In some cases, a spouse will call the police hoping that the police will respond and just stop the argument. In matters of domestic violence action is often taken by law enforcement officials to diffuse a situation and separate arguing parties to avoid the potential of violence. When the police arrive, typically an arrest will be made, even if no physical violence has occurred.
