DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Crimes alleging violence against family members, especially female partners are vigorously prosecuted throughout Maine. Most of the County District Attorneys have specially assigned Prosecutors to handle these matters. An arrest based on an allegation of domestic violence is an immediate and shocking disruption to a family. Bail conditions usually prevent the Defendant from returning home or seeing his or her family. A conviction can lead to consequences that last a life time. For example, a life time ban on firearm ownership. An experienced criminal defense lawyer should be contacted immediately in order to deal with highly restrictive bail conditions, and begin the defense of the case. Maine Judges take these cases very seriously. Jail time and lengthy probation is common. A plan on how to deal with the criminal charges and begin the healing process within the family should be formulated right away. Call me. Let's talk about it.
