Bail Bonds La Verne - Domestic Violence
Domestic Violence has become a serious problem throughout America and could result in one or all of the people involved in the domestic dispute to be detained. In order for a dispute to be considered domestic violence, it must happen between two or more co-habitants, and must result in one of the people involved inflecting bodily, mental or severe emotional injury to another.
Someone involved should only call the authorities if they feel it is necessary in order to protect themselves or their loved ones. Law enforcement officers have been taking these calls more seriously and will make an arrest if they feel they need to or will detain everyone to defuse a hostile situation and to prevent the situation from becoming more dangerous or aggressive.
Domestic Violence can be charged in many different ways such as misdemeanors or felonies in the state of California. The severity of the charge will depend on the officer’s view of how severe the crime was and whether anybody was injured throughout the dispute. The most used charges to describe domestic violence are 273.5, which is a felony, and 243.5, which is a misdemeanor. Each code will be assigned a bail amount that will vary per county and which jail the defendant is being held.
Remember that everyone that gets arrested is innocent until proven guilty, so it doesn’t mean that you or your loved one will be convicted and found guilty of the charge. However, fighting cases involving domestic violence can take a long time, especially if you fight it from inside jail.
The judge in court will make an effort to try to tell you or your loved one that resorting to violence to solve domestic disputes is unacceptable just to ensure that you understand that domestic violence cases are not taken lightly.
