Domestic Violence 35th District Court Canton

In our opinion, Canton police are quick to charge domestic violence. It is not uncommon for someone to be charged without anyone listening to that person’s side of the story. It also isn’t uncommon that someone would be charged with domestic violence when their accuser has no marks on themselves.

If you are charged with domestic violence in Canton then your matter will be heard at the 35th District Court in Plymouth. Judge Plakas, Judge Lowe, or Judge Gerou will preside over your matter.

Procedurally, the first time you appear in court will be for arraignment. Sometimes arraignment happens the same day you are arrested by police and before you leave the police station, and other times you are released after being arrested and have to show up to court at a later date for arraignment.

Two things happen at arraignment. First, the judge will formally tell you that you are charged with domestic violence and that the maximum possible penalty is up to 93 days in jail, and a fine of $500 plus costs.

The second thing that happens at arraignment is the judge will address bond and may order bond conditions. Bond is a promise to return to the court. Many times you will have to give the court money to hang onto in order to be allowed to leave. As long as you come back to the court when ordered your money is either returned to you at the end of the case or applied to fines and costs. Bond conditions can also be ordered. Bond conditions are things the court orders you to do or not to do in order to stay out of jail while your case progresses. For many people this is very frustrating because they have just been told they are presumed innocent while the trial goes on, yet the judge is making them pay money to leave the court and forcing them to do things.

Common bond conditions for domestic violence in the Canton 35th District Court are that you do not have any contact with the person you allegedly assaulted, that you are not in possession of any firearms, and that you do not drink alcohol or do drugs and submit to random testing for the same.

Canton lawyer Boria is able to make sure that many of his clients have little or no bond conditions. In cases where inconvenient bond conditions are ordered we do what we can to make sure they are as easy to comply with as possible. In order to get little to no bond conditions it is important that you hire an experienced Canton lawyer as early on in your case as possible, preferably before you go to court.

After arraignment your matter will precede to pre trial, motions may be filed, hearings may be held, and eventually the case will end by being dismissed, a plea deal, or a trial.

Canton Lawyer Aaron J. Boria

As mentioned above, we have won every domestic violence trial we have held. We carefully screen the cases and can figure out which cases are winners. Some cases simply cannot be won because the evidence against our client is just too damaging, and in other cases it is too risky for our clients to go to trial because of their job, nervousness, or some other reason.

In the cases that we don’t believe can be won at trial because someone is clearly guilty, or for whatever reason, we still do what we can to obtain a dismissal for our clients. Sometimes that means that our client will be put on probation, usually for 6 to 12 months, and at the end of that time the case is dismissed. This allows our client’s to go on with life stating that they have not been convicted of domestic violence. Yes, even in bad cases it is still possible to get a great result.
