The criminal offense of Domestic Violence (DV) is a serious crime, with serious legal repercussions.  There are several code sections that can be used to charge a person accused of Domestic Violence.

A person accused of Domestic Violence (DV) can suffer the loss of multiple Constitutionally protected rights.  A person ability to move about freely can be restricted by a Restraining Order or an Emergency Protective Order.  They be restricted from returning to their own home,  work, school, or other areas that would place them within the protected zone that surrounds the accuser whether they may travel.

The right to bear arms is a such a fundamental and valued right, that the the founding father included it as the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.  These rights may be taken upon a mere accusation, issue of a Retraining Order, or an Emergency Protective Order.  Further, even a conviction for a simple assault, absent any element of a domestic relationship can cause a convicted individual to lose their Constitutional right to bear arms, even posses a firearm, for the remainder of their life.

Judges routinely admonish an individual convicted for a misdemeanor crime of Domestic Violence that they will be restricted from ownership or possession of a firearm for ten (10) years following the date of conviction.  The truth is under Federal Law, a person convicted of a misdemeanor crime of Domestic Violence will be barred from ownership and/or possession of firearms for life.

Fresno DUI Lawyer Jonathan Rooker: Fresno area law enforcement agencies have some of the strictest DUI enforcement policies in the Nation. The first decision an officer makes during the DUI enforcement is the decision to stop the vehicle. It may be a driving pattern, maintenance infraction, tinted windows, or other issues the lead the officer to make that decision. The next decision is whether to have the driver exit the vehicle and conduct a DUI investigation. Factors include odor or alcohol, red watery eyes, and slurred speech. Timely stopping, parking, and fumbling with a license or insurance paperwork, all influence the officers decision to continue the investigation. Once outside the vehicle the subject may sway or have trouble following directions. At the conclusion of the third stage, the officer decides if there is probable cause for an arrest. If you are arrested, there are steps you should take on your own behalf. It is important for anyone cited for DUI to contact the DMV within 10 days to preserve their right to an Admin Per Se Hearing in front of a DMV officer. Failure to contact the DMV within 10 days may result in the suspension of your driving privilege. Remember, the officer arrests at probable cause, but it takes proof beyond a reasonable doubt to convict. If the officer does their job right, a large percentage of the people should be found not guilty.

Fresno & Madera Criminal Defense Lawyer Jonathan Rooker: Domestic Violence (DV) charges, punishments, and your rights is something you need to understand if you've been accused. DV charges can result in a sentence of probation, jail, and/or prison. DV can be charged under various sections including PC 243(E) or the more serious PC 273.5 Felony (DV) accusation. Many convictions result in being sentenced to a 52-week program, referred to as the Batterers Treatment Program (BTP). The right to own, possess, or use a Firearms, a serious issue for many people who grew up in the rural valley hunting, fishing, and target shooting can be lost forever. While Judges routinely advise those convicted of misdemeanor Domestic Violence that they will be prohibited from owning firearms for 10-years, the Federal Government will preclude gun ownership for the remainder of the persons life if they are convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence. It is important that the court knows you are a law abiding, upstanding, and productive member of society. Don't let an accusation turn into a lifetime of being stigmatized as a criminal.
