Domestic Violence in Salt Lake City
Domestic violence charges are treated seriously in Utah, whether the act is committed against a current spouse, former spouse, significant other, family member, or co-habitant. The area covers a wide range of cases, from child endangerment to stalking. Any conviction of domestic violence can have serious repercussions aside from confinement and fines, including an effect on future employment, housing options, or gun ownership.
Common charges for domestic violence and related offenses include:
- Violation Of Protective Orders
- Child Abuse / Child Abandonment
- Civil Stalking Injunction
- Domestic Violence In Presence Of A Child
- Electronic Communication Harassment
- False Imprisonment
- Kidnapping / Aggravated Kidnapping
- Stalking Injunction
Domestic violence charges are not always straight forward, and can sometimes be rather complicated. In some cases, false or exaggerated allegations of domestic violence have been brought against spouses at previous times: during child custody battles, divorce disputes, or before the Department of Child and Family Services or the police. In many cases, there are extenuating factors that can be used to build a defense. No matter how simple or complex, a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney will know how to investigate the facts and apply the law in building a defense.
