Domestic violence charge defense strategies are complex

We recently discussed some of the main points regarding a domestic violence case. If you recall, the effects of these cases can be considerable and far-reaching. If you are facing a domestic violence charge, your defense is the backbone of your plan for the future. We know that this might seem troubling, but it is the reality that a person facing these charges has to deal with.

Domestic violence charges can't be ignored

Domestic violence charges can shake you to your core. Knowing that you and someone you love have a wedge between you over something that was probably a stupid disagreement is disheartening. Now, you have to face the fact that criminal charges have been levied against you.

Automatic protective order issued on man, wife wants it lifted

A woman filed a request to have a protective order that was issued after a domestic incident lifted. The woman, who was said to have been held at gunpoint by her husband, claims that he never hurt her. She said that she didn't fear for her life.

Criminal defense in sexual assault cases

When Derry residents are accused of sexual assault, the ways in which it can affect their lives are numerous. More than just their freedom is at stake since many people convicted of sex crimes are required to register as sex offenders, which can restrict where they live and how others perceive them long after they have "served their time." That is why enlisting the help of a criminal defense attorney is essential. These cases can be complex, and attempting to go it alone can have lifelong repercussions. 

Karate teacher focused on criminal defense in sexual assault case

Derry parents often entrust their children to strangers at school and in extracurricular activities. The adults charged with their care and safety often find themselves accused of failing in those duties -- sometimes involving criminal charges. A karate teacher here in New Hampshire is likely focused on a criminal defense to charges that he sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl.

Video of arrest presents a challenge in criminal defense

These days, nearly every move that law enforcement officers make is captured on film. Derry residents might be aware of the footage of an arrest of a driver in which two of the troopers involved, one from New Hampshire, are seen punching and kicking the suspect. This video could present a challenge to their criminal defense teams.

Coercive control may require criminal defense in NH

When many people think of domestic violence, they imagine black eyes and broken bones. Soon, however, courts in Derry and across the country may be hearing criminal defense against a different form of domestic assault that is not always visible to the naked eye. Coercive control is a systematic form of physical and emotional domination of one partner over the other over a period of time. One partner may use a combination of humiliation, manipulation or isolation as ways to control the other partner.

Man's criminal defense to sex crimes ends with an acquittal

The age of consent in New Hampshire is 16-years-old. This means that even if the other party is in a position of authority over a teen, any sexual contact can still be found to have been consensual depending on the circumstances. Anyone accused of sexual assault of a person age 16 and up might use this fact as part of a criminal defense strategy to fight related charges.

Felony assault charges require a vigorous criminal defense

Those here in Derry who either have faced felony assault charges themselves or know someone who has already understand that the penalties of a conviction can be serious. Anyone facing such charges should engage the assistance of criminal defense counsel as soon as possible. Without an understanding of the law, along with how the local court system works, attempting to deal with the charges alone could be disastrous.
