Domestic Violence

Don’t Let Domestic Violence Charges Ruin Your Life

Accusations of domestic violence can take a toll on many aspects of your life. Depending on the charges you are facing, the consequences may include a lengthy prison sentence, a lifetime ban on your ability to own a firearm and a criminal record that may follow you throughout life. You may also end up with a protective order(restraining order) against you, which can prevent you from returning home or contacting the victim in any way.

Why Work With A Former Prosecutor

Fortunately, there may be multiple ways to challenge the charges. You might have a claim of self-defense or defense of others. Or you may be able to get key evidence thrown out on legal grounds.

However, it can be difficult — if not impossible — to pursue these strategies on your own. Instead, protect your future by enlisting the help of our legal team at Rowdy G. Williams Law Firm P.C. in Terre Haute. Our criminal defense attorneys have a long history of success in battling criminal charges.

Understanding The Charges

Domestic violence is not its own criminal charge in Indiana. Instead, the law establishes multiple charges that address different situations, including:

  • Domestic battery, which involves physical contact that causes injury
  • Aggravated domestic battery, which involves serious or life-threatening injuries
  • Criminal stalking, which involves repeated harassment, intimidation or threats
  • Criminal confinement and kidnapping, which involve forcible restraint or relocation
  • Rape and sexual battery, which include any nonconsensual sexual contact
  • Child abuse involving the use of force

These charges may involve a spouse, romantic partner, ex-spouse or partner, child, roommate or other family member. We handle all types of criminal charges. Learn more by getting in touch with our legal team today.
