PRAGMATIC BOISE LAWYERS DEFENDING YOU AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CHARGES IN IDAHO
Direct advice to avoid serious penalties
If you’re facing a violation of an Idaho domestic violence law, reach out to one of our Boise attorneys right away. Failing to do so could result in serious penalties. On the criminal side, you can be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony such as spousal abuse, violation of no-contact orders, attempted strangulation or any number of other offenses. On the civil side, you may be forbidden to have contact with the alleged victim or even your minor children — and if you violate that restraint, you’ll face additional charges.
A domestic violence conviction may carry serious penalties, so it is important to consult an experienced criminal defense lawyer if you’ve been charged. At the Cox Law Firm, we specialize in creating options for people who are facing such charges. The faster you contact us, the sooner we can begin structuring a defense strategy that will provide you with the most flexibility.
Understanding domestic violence charges in Idaho
If you are charged with a domestic violence crime in Idaho, it’s important to understand how domestic violence laws in our state are enforced. Whether you face allegations of aggravated assault, attempted strangulation, forced sex, spousal abuse, no-contact orders or another matter, law enforcement officers often overcharge these offenses — meaning you want an attorney who has both the skill and experience to refute such charges from the outset.
If there’s physical evidence, prosecutors will use it against you. Bruises, scratching or red marks can contribute to convictions of domestic violence in Idaho — even a loud argument can and will be used as evidence in court. Since much of the burden of proof rides on witness testimony, you want an attorney who can poke holes in the prosecutor’s arguments, bring light to the basis of a self defense theory and undermine its witnesses. Our criminal defense attorneys know how the Idaho domestic violence laws work and have helped clients in such cases for more than 21 years.
