How can I be charged with domestic violence when it is my word against his/hers?
Many times, domestic violence cases are a he said, she said situation. Now the officer will believe one party or the other. This happens often. It’s the state attorney’s job to go ahead and prove that you’ve committed the offense. Just because they accused you of committing the offense, it doesn’t mean they can actually earn a conviction for it. Talk to your attorney, and we can help build the defense, and we can tear down the prosecutor’s case. If we do our job well, and everything breaks the way that we all hope it will, we can come back with a verdict of not guilty, or possibly even have the matter dismissed before trial.
