Domestic violence or harassment cases are very sensitive matters because most involve a family member or a romantic partner. Many domestic violence and/or harassment charges are filed solely based on one person's complaint to the local police department. To most people, including many charged with such crimes, this comes as a surprise and seems unfair, and under many circumstances, we agree.
One accusation is all it takes for someone to be arrested and even forbidden to enter their home or see their children. This is because when a domestic violence crime is filed, in almost all instances, a temporary order of protection is issued by the Judge forbidding the defendant to have any contact with the complaining witness until the case is disposed, which can take months or years.
