Falsely Accused of Domestic Violence?

Domestic Violence Defense Attorney

Defendant Falsely Accused of Domestic Violence

Anyone accused of domestic violence, even if innocent, needs to be aware of the potential harsh consequences if found guilty by the courts. A person convicted could lose parental rights, lose contact with family and children, and spend time in jail or prison. In Florida, the state can pursue criminal charges against an accused offender even over the protest of the alleged victim. Allegations of domestic violence can lead to an arrest and most like an order of protection or a restraining order filed against the accused offender.

At the Law Office of Michael Mirer, P.A., we are dedicated to helping clients facing criminal charges by offering a strong and aggressive defense. It is important to have an attorney represent you at the time of arrest so you can avoid making possibly incriminating statements to the authorities. We can represent you at your first hearing and at each step of the legal process.

Protect Your Interests When Falsely Accused

Realize that you can be found guilty of domestic violence, even if you are innocent. You could go to jail or prison and receive other penalties imposed by the courts. There are actions that you can take immediately in order to protect yourself. Document the events that led to the domestic violence allegations in the form of a timeline. You can educate yourself on the criminal allegations that have been filed against you. An informed and involved client makes it easier for your attorney to prepare your case and defend you in court.

Foremost, you should not try to contact the victim or plaintiff under any circumstances. Do not try to telephone, text, send a letter or email, send flowers or gifts, or get someone else to contact the plaintiff for you. Do not go to the place of employment, school, or other location where the plaintiff may be located. It does not matter whether you are falsely accused, it important to refrain from making contact in any form. It is probable there is a temporary restraining order and that prohibits any attempts to contact the plaintiff/victim. A violation of a restraining order is a serious offense in itself.

Defense Against False Accusations of Domestic Abuse

Out of spite, to get even, or for other reasons, family members or household members sometimes make false accusations against other members for alleged crimes of assault, battery, sexual assault, kidnapping, child abuse, spousal rape, or other crimes of domestic violence. In highly contested divorces, the spouses may accuse each other of all sorts of alleged wrongdoings.

It is vital to have your attorney represent your best interests and provide a vigorous defense. The prosecution must prove the intention to inflict harm to the plaintiff/victim. The defense can challenge evidence and provide witness statements, police reports, doctor reports, and other available means to prove the innocence of the accused. As a former prosecutor, Mr. Mirer, understand the methods used by prosecutors to build cases. He brings that valuable experience and insight to each case the law office defends.
