Domestic Violence

WE CAN HANDLE A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CASE IN FAMILY COURT AND CRIMINAL COURT.

Domestic violence   doesn’t   just   mean   spousal   battery,   but   may   also   include vandalism,   stalking,   criminal threats,   and   annoying   phone   calls   within   a   family   context.   Domestic   violence   arrests   often   also   have immediate   consequences   in   family   court   (especially   when   children   are   involved)   and   ultimately   on immigration status. How Domestic Violence Cases Are Treated In Court If   you   were   arrested,   it   is   presumed   that   you   are   the   perpetrator   and   you   will   be   treated   in   court accordingly.   Crimes   involving   domestic   violence   are   taken   very   seriously.   Judges   and   prosecutors   deal with   the   cases   swiftly   and   with   little   sympathy   or   understanding.   To   err   on   the   side   of   caution,   a   judge will   not   question   the   truthfulness   of   the   police   report   or   the   prosecutor’s   judgment   in   filing   on   the   first day.   Domestic   violence   charges   are   so   serious   that   some   courthouses   have   established   specialized courtrooms with specialized judges and specialized prosecutors to handle these cases.  How The First Day of Court Will Go On   the   first   day   of   court,   the   judge   will   likely   impose   an   order   for   you   to   stay   away   from   the   alleged victim   or   even   make you   move   out   of   the   family   home.   In   addition,   even   if you   are   out   of   custody   at your first   court   date,   domestic   violence   prosecutors   frequently   push   to   have   you   taken   into   custody   to   show how   far   they   will   go   to   protect   an   alleged   victim.   This   means   that   you   will   have   to   pay   bail   or   go   into   jail while you wait for your trial to happen.  Pleading Guilty To A Domestic Violence Charge Has Serious Consequences Pleading    guilty    to    domestic    violence    case    has    its    own    special    consequences    because    special mandatory   rules   apply.   For   example,   when   placed   on   probation,   the   law   will   require   that   you   attend domestic violence   counseling   every week   for   one year.   Furthermore,   a   judge will   almost   always   impose a   restraining   order   to   keep   the   probationer   away   from   the   victim.   While   on   probation,   a   judge   will monitor   you   carefully   before   he/she   will   consider   allowing   you   to   resume   having   contact   with   the alleged victim.    Why No One Should Handle a Domestic Violence Case Alone In   court,   there   will   be   a   judge,   a   prosecutor,   a   clerk,   a   bailiff,   a   court   reporter,   and   other   accused individuals.   Only   one   person   in   that   courtroom   is   going   to   be   interested   in your version   of   the   story.   Only one   person   in   that   courtroom   is   on   your   side   and   will   take   the   time   to   hear   you   out   and   help   you.   That one   person   is   your   lawyer,   so   you   must   choose   your   lawyer   wisely.   You   need   a   lawyer   who   has   the special   training   and   experience   to   get   you   through   these   highly   specialized   criminal   cases.   You   need   a lawyer   whom   the   prosecutor   and   judge   will   take   seriously   and   has   the   right   demonstrated   skills   to advance your interests.   Why Professor Sabado and His Team Are the Right Choice Professor   Raul   C.   Sabado,   has   handled   more   than   four   thousand   domestic   violence   cases.      Three   years of   his   career   was   spent   being   specially   trained   and   assigned   to   handle   cases   in   specialized   criminal domestic   violence   courts.      He   has   also   undergone   training   on   the   very   specialized   probation   conditions imposed   in   domestic   violence   cases   and   holds   unique   certification   on   sexual   violence   advocacy.      To date,   he   has   had   unprecedented   success   in   domestic   violence   cases,   some   of   which   are   noted   to   the right.      His   skill   is   so   well   established   that   the   La   Verne   College   of   Law   has   hired   him   to   teach   the   future generation   of   lawyers   and   prosecutor   how   to   try   these   types   of   cases.      His   team   is   expert   in   getting domestic   violence   cases   dismissed,   reduced,   or   otherwise   resolved   in   ways   that   satisfy   the   client’s employment, licensing, and family needs.
Case Results…  People v. K.D. (2016): Client was a teacher who was accused of domestic violence against husband. Mr. Sabado’s team got the charges reduced to disturbing the peace and saving Client’s teaching credentials.   People v. R.P.  Client was accused of making criminal threats to kill wife. At trial, Mr. Sabado demonstrated that the wife made the story up because she was angry and simply wanted the police to get client out of her face and teach him a lesson. Mr. Sabado took the matter to trial and got the entire jury to vote NOT GUILTY unanimously.   People v. D.J.  Client was accused of hitting his wife and pulling her hair in an argument. Mr. Sabado got one-half of the jury to not believe the victim’s story because she didn’t point to the correct side of her face and not even the police could see injuries she claimed she sustained. The trial resulted in a hung jury.

How Domestic Violence Cases Are Treated In Court If   you   were   arrested,   it   is   presumed   that   you   are   the perpetrator     and     you     will     be     treated     in     court accordingly.   Crimes   involving   domestic   violence   are taken    very    seriously.    Judges    and    prosecutors    deal with    the    cases    swiftly    and    with    little    sympathy    or understanding.   To   err   on   the   side   of   caution,   a   judge will   not   question   the   truthfulness   of   the   police   report or   the   prosecutor’s   judgment   in   filing   on   the   first   day. Domestic   violence   charges   are   so   serious   that   some courthouses          have          established          specialized courtrooms   with   specialized   judges   and   specialized prosecutors to handle these cases.  How The First Day of Court Will Go On   the   first   day   of   court,   the   judge   will   likely   impose an   order   for   you   to   stay   away   from   the   alleged   victim or   even   make   you   move   out   of   the   family   home.   In addition,   even   if   you   are   out   of   custody   at   your   first court   date,   domestic   violence   prosecutors   frequently push   to   have   you   taken   into   custody   to   show   how   far they   will   go   to   protect   an   alleged   victim.   This   means that   you   will   have   to   pay   bail   or   go   into   jail   while   you wait for your trial to happen.  Pleading   Guilty   To   A   Domestic   Violence   Charge   Has Serious Consequences Pleading   guilty   to   domestic violence   case   has   its   own special    consequences    because    special    mandatory rules   apply.   For   example,   when   placed   on   probation, the   law will   require   that you   attend   domestic violence counseling   every   week   for   one   year.   Furthermore,   a judge will   almost   always   impose   a   restraining   order   to keep   the   probationer   away   from   the   victim.   While   on probation,   a   judge   will   monitor   you   carefully   before he/she   will   consider   allowing   you   to   resume   having contact with the alleged victim.    Why   No   One   Should   Handle   a   Domestic   Violence Case Alone In   court,   there   will   be   a   judge,   a   prosecutor,   a   clerk,   a bailiff,   a   court   reporter,   and   other   accused   individuals.
