Domestic violence charges may have unforeseen consequences
Being charged with domestic violence in Jacksonville, Florida can be an absolute nightmare for you and your family. Many times police are called to assist or soothe tensions in the household, but it results in an arrest, which causes further hardship on the client and other household members. Frequently when a person appears for a bond hearing on such a charge, the judge will order that the defendant has no contact with the alleged victim, meaning that he or she will have to move out of the household until the case is concluded. If you are convicted of domestic violence in Florida, it is mandatory that you participate in a 26-week counseling program, which can result in severe personal and financial hardships. You’ll also lose your right to possess a firearm under federal law.
