Facing a domestic violence charge? We can help.

Domestic Violence is not a stand alone charge but rather an enhancer that attaches to one of many different Wisconsin criminal charges. There are a few situations where you can end up being charged with a Domestic Abuse Enhancer. Most of the time we think of a domestic crime in the sense of a husband and wife fight. However, under Wisconsin statute § 968.075 you can be charged with domestic abuse if you engage in certain acts against your spouse or former spouse, as well as against an adult with whom you reside or formerly resided or against an adult with whom you have a child in common. This definition includes roommates. Domestic abuse charges can also result if you violate a restraining order.

What acts constitute Domestic Violence?

As described above, what makes an act a crime of “domestic violence” is who the alleged act is directed at. Any violent act or “intentional impairment of a physical condition” can result in a domestic violence charge. Similarly, being loud and boisterous can lead to a disorderly conduct charge with the domestic violence enhancer if the facts fit. A more serious act like a sexual assault can also be classified as domestic violence.

Beating a Domestic Violence Charge

When the stakes are high it is important to have a criminal defense attorney who knows how to win. Seriously, a conviction for a domestic related crime will have life long consequences. There are a few ways to “beat” these type of charges. The best outcome is obviously a dismissal. However, a dismissal of a domestic violence charge is difficult and is not the norm. Having an aggressive domestic violence attorney fighting for you makes a dismissal all the more plausible.

Avoiding a Domestic Charge

Alternatively, a common way of beating a domestic violence charge is by negotiating down to a charge that is not a domestic. It is important to know what is and what is not considered a “domestic crime” under federal law. Just because it is not labeled a “domestic crime” under Wisconsin law does not mean you are clear from the firearms ban.
