Individuals facing domestic violence charges in Arizona should never make any type of attempt to contact the alleged victim. It is common for a person to question the accusation against them when they are suddenly faced with criminal domestic violence charges. However, contacting the alleged victim is not the way to resolve these types of concerns. Trying to “clear things up” with the victim will almost always make the situation worse. A person could even face additional and potentially more severe charges if they try to seek out the victim.
The best way for a person to deal with a criminal domestic violence charge is to contact a criminal defense attorney instead. In order to successfully defend this type of charge, a defendant should look for an attorney who understands how to challenge the evidence and work strategically to alter the interpretation of the charge. It’s also a good idea to look for someone who has successfully defended individuals facing similar types of charges in the past. Every domestic violence case is different, and therefore it is important for a defendant to retain an attorney who cares about their future and listens to all of their questions and concerns.
