Representation for Felony Domestic Violence Charges in CA

Felony crimes require something more than simple touching by the defendant. A serious injury must have taken place for felony domestic violence charges. Felony domestic violence requires that the abuse was committed with aggravating factors. Either violence resulting in bodily injury or involving the use of a deadly weapon.

These trials involve not only serious consequences but complex law. Experts and psychologists are often very important in cases where there is a history of mutual fighting between the parties. Issues such as drug and alcohol use can be critical in how a case proceeds.

When there are felony charges in any case one goal is to test the evidence of the prosecution through expert witnesses. In these cases, every allegation can add years to a sentence. The types of injury’s involved and how they were caused is key to the evidence at trial. Physician experts and domestic violence experts are invaluable when trying to prove certain aspects of the event. This is why it's critical that you get the legal representation you need for your case.

What is Considered "Traumatic Condition"?

The injury in these cases is also defined as a “traumatic condition.” This language means that the injuries caused are non-physical, but are in fact serious and not merely bruises or emotional distress. Domestic violence laws include strangulation as a specific offense that can be charged as a felony. Injuries in these cases can be difficult to examine and explain.

The use of experts by the prosecution is almost guaranteed in any case that goes to trial. Understanding how and when to use domestic violence experts is crucial to any defense. A San Diego felony domestic violence lawyer who has tried such cases will know which experts should be consulted for the best defense.
