Milwaukee County criminal defense attorney domestic violence

Domestic violence affects the lives of millions of Americas. Whether you have been a victim of domestic violence or abuse or you have been accused of abusing someone, it is important to know about your rights and responsibilities regarding restraining orders. A restraining order is a type of court order called an injunction. For example, this legally enforceable order may prohibit an individual from contacting or coming within a certain distance of you and/or your children.  

Domestic Violence and Abuse

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 10 million men and women are the victims of physical abuse at the hands of a romantic partner every year in the United States. Both males and females can be victims or perpetrators of domestic violence. Physical, mental, emotional, and sexual abuse can happen to people of all income levels and lifestyles. A restraining order prevents an alleged abuser from continuing to abuse or harass someone. Violating the terms of a restraining order is a misdemeanor offense in Wisconsin, punishable by up to nine months in jail and fines of up to $10,000.

Depending on the circumstances of the alleged crime, sexual assault is punishable by up to several decades in prison. If you are accused of sexually assaulting a child, you could face a prison sentence of 40-60 years or even life imprisonment. That is why it is imperative that you seek the legal guidance of a skilled criminal defense attorney who can protect your rights and help you avoid a conviction.

Do Not Submit to a Police Interrogation Without Your Attorney Present

Most people are familiar with the phrase “you have the right to remain silent,” but do not know how profound this right actually is. The U.S. Constitution gives you the right to avoid incriminating yourself. This means that you do not have to answer police questions after you have been arrested. Police may use several different tactics during an interrogation. They may even imply that only a guilty person would choose to remain silent and decline questioning. However, the best thing you can do to avoid saying something that will be used against you during future legal proceedings is to say nothing. Calmly ask for your lawyer and refuse to submit to police interrogations until he or she is present.
