Domestic Violence Charges Canton
If you have been charged with domestic violence in Canton then the burden it is on the prosecuting attorney (that’s the attorney against you, the one on the side of the cops and the person accusing you) to prove that you committed the assault.
The prosecuting attorney must prove that you put a family member, roommate, or person you had an intimate relationship with in fear of an immanent battery or actually did batter them.
In plain English, a battery means offensive touching not just hitting. The prosecutor must put forward evidence that you hit someone (or touched them in a way that they would find offensive) that you had a close relationship with or you made that person think you were going to hit him or her and you had the ability to carry out the threat of a hit.
As a domestic violence defense lawyer, it has been our experience after handling countless cases that many people who have been accused of domestic violence never actually did the act, another words many people are falsely accused of domestic violence.
With that in mind, it is on the prosecution and the police to put forward all of the evidence that a domestic violence actually occurred. Many times the police do not have pictures of any wounds or marks, they have no witness statements, and all they have is one person accusing another.
It has been our experience that many times the police will show up to a house due to a domestic dispute, talk to one person, and then make an arrest without talking to anyone else or getting both sides of the story.
People make false accusation of domestic violence all the time. It is probably most common in a volatile relationship or in a relationship that is coming to an end. Many times we see domestic violence allegations in divorce because the person making the accusation believes it will result in a more favorable divorce settlement, or in child custody proceedings because the accuser believes it will result in them having sole custody. We all see false domestic violence complaints in relationships where one person accuses their significant other in order to gain ground, control, or punish.
In the situation where the police only talk to the accuser and not both parties we often find that the person being accused was actually acting in self-defense. The accuser starts a fight and then the accused lawfully defends themselves and then later get charged with domestic violence.
You are legally allowed to defend yourself if someone is attacking you. If a jury believes that you were acting in self-defense then they must find you not guilty.
Along the lines of self-defense is the defense of others. In this situation you may see two family members fighting and so you step in to help one of them and then are later accused of domestic violence. If you stepped in to help someone who needed defending then you can assert the claim of defense of others. If a jury believes you were lawfully defending someone else then you must be found not guilty of domestic violence.
