Domestic Violence and Assault

If you are charged with assault/domestic violence in Kentucky, you may have a civil EPO/DVO hearing, a criminal assault charge, or both. Having practiced criminal defense in Northern Kentucky for over 20 years, people charged are often confused with the legal charges, the legal process and what is pending.  An experienced attorney will use the internet, specifically CourtNet in Kentucky, to check all current, pending as well as past charges on a client. For example, if there is a protective order or domestic violence hearing, they often have a trial within 14 days of service.  This is considered a civil hearing, however there are consequences to a permanent domestic violence order (DVO) being entered.  If a DVO is entered, the Respondent is not permitted to own, possess or handle any firearms.  While not criminal, it does show up on a police record whenever they run your name, license information or address. The criminal assault charge can result in up to 12 months of incarceration and $500 fine.  Often, a condition of probation may be to enroll and complete a alcohol treatment program, drug/alcohol evaluation and/or anger management.  Anger Management programs can continue on a weekly basis for up to one year and the defendant must pay, attend and complete or face significant jail time. Prior convictions or even charges can have a significant impact on plea negotiations, trial strategy as well as sentencing.  Knowing the history is a key to ensuring a good deal. If you have been charged with assault and/or domestic violence, you should hire an attorney to defend your rights.  For consultation in Kentucky or Cincinnati, call Michael Bouldin at 859-581-MIKE or email at [email protected]  Call 859-581-6453.   [huge_it_maps id="1"]
