Domestic violence crimes are taken very seriously by the law. In addition to jail time, a domestic violence conviction can cause a person to lose their right to bear arms, their housing, their citizenship, and even custody of their children. For these reasons, if you are accused of a DV crime, you must speak to an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible. In particular, speak to an experienced defense attorney before you speak to the police or the party making the accusation.
