There's Hope if You're Arrested for Domestic Violence-Pt. 3

In most domestic violence cases the minimum punishment you will be facing is attendance at a certified anger management program - at your expense. The group meetings usually take place once a week for two hours per class, for a period of either sixteen or 52 weeks (1 year).

A competent attorney will attempt to negotiate for the shorter program, but it usually depends on the nature of the case, the extent of any injuries, one's prior record, and the personalities of both the particular judge and the deputy district attorney involved in prosecuting your case.

Feel free to contact my office today if you or someone you know has been arrested for a domestic violence related offense.
