Domestic Violence Crimes in Las Vegas, Nevada

Categories: Lawyer Blog Posts.

Have you or a loved one been charged with domestic violence? Domestic violence charges can be difficult for the accused and their family, and often have lifelong implications, even if found not guilty.

A domestic violence crime is the purposeful infliction of harm upon another person living in the same residence. The other person can be a spouse, family member, child, or cohabitant, and the action can be any threat or violence of a physical and/ or emotional nature that causes a traumatic condition in the victim. Most commonly the charged individual is a male, although domestic violence charges are brought regardless of gender. The violence usually involves one individual forcing dominance over the other.

Because of the violent and cruel nature of these crimes, the court usually rules mercilessly on the accused. Flimsy evidence and fabricated testimonies will hold a lot of weight, so that even completely innocent parties end up with lifelong consequences.
