Crimes that involve physical force or abuse from one family or household member against another are considered domestic violence. The state of Kansas defines family or household members as the following types of domestic relationships:
With a nationwide effort to prevent domestic violence and convict offenders, individuals who are accused of a domestic violence offense can expect ruthless prosecution and negative social stigmas.
While domestic violence cases may not appear to be a top priority for prosecutors, widespread attention and pressure often prompts them to gain as many convictions as possible. At Garretson & Toth, LLC, our Johnson County criminal defense attorneys work to neutralize the effect that these strong public opinions can have on legal proceedings and we have developed the tools to effectively protect and defend the rights of our clients.
Aggressive representation has always been a pillar of our firm's practice. We understand, however, that cases involving domestic violence often entail complicated issues that require deft and delicate legal work. As many of these domestic violence cases are fraught with fresh and turbulent emotions, wrongful and false accusations are common. In addition, intimate relationships greatly complicate matters and a close investigation of the victim and accused are essential to extracting the truth. Domestic violence allegations are a prime example of how the American legal system and personal lives can collide, and it takes meticulous legal work to clearly establish innocence.
