Montgomery County Assault Family Violence Defense Attorney James Sullivan Gets Proven Results


Montgomery County Texas Domestic Assault Defense Lawyers

Most couples learn to resolve their differences or even end their relationships without resorting to domestic assault or family violence.  Sometimes, however, even good people gets so stressed out and feel so overwhelmed that they lose it even for a moment and strike out at their partner or another family member in a physical way.

The Consequences for Assault Family Violence

Depending on the circumstances, the prosecutors can charge Assault Family Violence either as a:

A Class A Misdemeanor Assault means that a person caused bodily injury (or pain) to their partner.  If the person used a deadly weapon in the domestic assault, then it is a Felony Aggravated Assault.  If the person choked their partner or restricted their breathing, then it is also a Felony.  Note: an inexperienced criminal defense attorney may be able to win the case at the grand jury level, but it is important to retain the attorney right away or the opportunity may be lost.  No matter the level of the criminal offense charged, you can expect the court to order you out of your home and have no contact until the case is resolved with your partner, spouse or family member.  Punishment for those who are found guilty of misdemeanor assault family violence may also include:

  • Community Supervision (Probation)
  •  A fine of up to $4,000.00
  •  Jail confinement of up to one year
  •  Community service
  •  Anger management counseling

The Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office immediately calls the alleged victim to get their statement as to what happened.  The prosecutors lock in the emotional stress of the event by obtaining their immediate statement.  However, facts tend to change and the importance of the incidence significantly lessens frequently after a short cooling off time.

Defending a Montgomery County Assault Family Violence Charge

Assault against a family member is very serious and can have far reaching consequences.  The accused may be permanently barred from working in certain industries.  The accused may be denied housing in apartment complexes.  If you are charged with assault family violence, you should seek legal advice from an experienced criminal defense lawyers.

The Montgomery County Criminal Lawyers at James Sullivan and Associates fight to get their client’s assault family violence charges dismissed or won at trial.  Other domestic assault lawyers may choose to arrange a plea bargain for their clients; however, this may not be in the client’s best interest.  While it is true that a defendant who successfully completes a deferred adjudication probation will not have a conviction on their record, it is also true that if that person ever gets arrested again for assault family violence then he or she will be charged with a third degree felony and if found guilty could be sentenced to between 2 to 10 years in prison.

Negotiating a plea deal with prosecutors should be the last resort.  A good Montgomery County domestic assault lawyer will first investigate the case, interview witnesses, analyze physical evidence and review witness statements in the offense report for inconsistencies.  Such a defense attorney will also consider possible motives for making false allegations, such as jealousy, revenge or child custody issues.
