Domestic Violence

dvIf you or a loved one has been arrested or charged with domestic battery the Law Office of Eric Reisinger is here to help you. Domestic battery charges, either a felony or a misdemeanor, are very serious and have consequences that go beyond just the criminal charge. It can be embarrassing and very stressful.

The average person might not be aware that if the police are called out for a domestic disturbance the police usually always take one of the parties to jail. Once the person is arrested for domestic battery the person has no bond. That means he or she cannot bond out of jail and has to stay the night in jail and remain in jail until he or she sees a judge at first appearances. After first appearances, if the judge gives a bond the judge could order no contact with the alleged victim as a condition of the bond. This means that a person cannot go back to their own home or even speak to their spouse. The no contact order can stay in effect until the case is over or until the judge rescinds the order. These are the reasons that it is extremely important that you hire an experienced attorney to help you navigate the criminal justice system from the very beginning.
