Complexity of Domestic Violence Charges
Domestic violence charges in Kansas have become more complicated over the years. For example, even if the accuser subsequently retracts charges of assault or aggravated battery, the charges may not be formally dropped, and the prosecution will move forward. In addition, there is an automatic no contact order issued after a domestic violence charge has been filed. If that order is violated—for example, the accused visits the house to collect his or her belongs or to visit the kids—another criminal charge can be filed for violating the order. Because of the difficult nature of domestic violence charges, it is important to contact a skilled defense attorney.
Domestic violence or domestic abuse crimes can be charged in many ways, depending on the case. People do not need to be married to be charged with domestic violence; partners, roommates, and any people who live together can be accused of domestic violence crimes. Attorney Sarah G. Swain has successfully defended people charged with:
- Criminal threat / terroristic threat
- Aggravated battery
- Sexual assault
- Criminal harassment, such as threatening letters or phone calls
