Our Johnson County Lawyers Work In Your Best Interests Only
Domestic violence is a label applied to a wide range of crimes that are allegedly perpetrated against a significant other, a spouse or anyone you are in a domestic relationship with.
In domestic violence cases, regardless of whether the alleged victim agrees or not, the prosecutor's goal is to convict the accused, and that outcome will be pursued aggressively. In fact, cities and counties often receive grant money from the state of Missouri or the federal government that is specifically used to help them improve their ability to prosecute domestic violence cases and get convictions. If you have been accused of any crime, including assault, that has been labeled domestic violence, an experienced attorney is a necessity.
At Lance A. Riddle Law Office, Attorneys at Law, in Warrensburg, we have more than 20 years of experience defending against domestic violence charges. No matter how challenging your case may seem, you can be confident that we can help you.
The Consequences Of A Domestic Violence Conviction In Missouri
We will take the time to educate you about the consequences you could face, some of which are surprising. For example, if you are convicted of any offense classified as domestic violence, a lifetime firearm ban will be triggered. You will never be able to own or possess a firearm again, even in a work or military capacity.
Domestic Violence and Orders of Protection
Some of the consequences of domestic violence charges may be felt even before a conviction. Often, the alleged victim may request an order of protection against you. This is a separate matter that is handled parallel to your criminal domestic violence case. The order could prevent you from returning home and seeing your children. We can help you defend against the order of protection, while simultaneously defending against the criminal charges you face.
