Falsely Accused of Abuse in Connecticut
Few things are more frustrating than being torn away from your family without having a good understanding of what will happen. Unfortunately, that is what many people who are arrested for domestic violence face. We have all heard stereotypes about people who abuse innocent victims. But the reality is that many people who are arrested for domestic violence are not guilty.
People get in situations where their emotions are out of control. They may yell or punch walls, but that does not necessarily mean anyone in the home is in immediate danger. Yet if a neighbor witnesses part of a heated argument, or a spouse calls the police in retaliation, that may be how it is perceived.
If you were arrested for domestic violence, it is important to contact New Haven domestic violence defense attorneys who can fight to protect your rights. At the Law Office of Jack O’Donnell, L.L.C., we work with individuals throughout Connecticut who face allegations of abuse. We know this can be a frightening time, but we have more than 30 years of experience offering individuals the legal protection they need.
