Defending You From Day One
High Quality Legal Representation in Domestic Assault Cases
Domestic assault, also sometimes called domestic violence, is a common charge in Colorado. Unfortunately, many people are falsely accused of domestic assault and never actually committed any crime.
Past or current intimate partners often allege that domestic abuse occurred in an effort to get revenge on the defendant, or in an attempt to gain control over a situation, like a divorce or child custody matter.
In the state of Colorado, it does not matter if the alleged victim of the violence recants his or her testimony or wants to “drop” the charges. The state can continue to pursue the charges against the defendant, and if convicted, the defendant will face harsh penalties.
This makes it absolutely critical to obtain seasoned legal help as soon as possible after learning you have been accused of domestic assault.
Defining Domestic Assault in Colorado
In Colorado, the definition of what constitutes domestic assault is much wider than in other states. Domestic violence occurs when one intimate partner attempts to control the other intimate partner using criminal or non-criminal tactics. This means that one does not have to hit their partner or physically assault them in any way to be charged with domestic assault in the state of Colorado.
Furthermore, these actions do not have to be directed at the victim themselves in order to be considered domestic assault, e.g., the defendant may direct these actions towards the victim’s children in an effort to control the victim.
