The attorneys at Adras & Altig understand that domestic situations can get complicated and that some people are wrongly charged with domestic battery as a result. If you have been charged with domestic battery in Las Vegas, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney to protect your legal rights.
Attorneys Steven Altig and Paul Adras recognize that facing a domestic battery charge can be extremely stressful, particularly for individuals who try to navigate the Nevada criminal justice system on their own.
Las Vegas police take reports of domestic violence extremely seriously, and domestic battery is one of the most frequently filed charges. Unfortunately, an argument or disagreement can get out of hand, especially if alcohol is involved, and lead to a domestic assault charge when it is not warranted. An angry spouse or partner may exaggerate what occurred out of spite to prompt an arrest.
A conviction of domestic battery can brand you with a criminal record and make it more difficult to get employment or obtain credit in the future. In particular, if you hold a professional license, a domestic battery charge can jeopardize your career and livelihood.
A domestic battery case can be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanour in Nevada. Prosecutors may seek jail time and a heavy fine even for a first offense. Whether the allegations are true or false, you need a highly experienced Las Vegas criminal defense attorney on your side to defend you to the fullest extent of the law.
The potential penalties for a domestic battery conviction in Las Vegas depend on your record and whether you have prior convictions. If you have no convictions for domestic battery in the past seven years, the maximum penalties that you face are at least two days and up to six months in jail. But you may be eligible for alternative resolutions such as required counselling.
