We know these types of cases frequently need a trial and we know that there are always different sides to the story. We are here to fight for you. We are here to answer your questions.
They lied about what happened, why did I get arrested? Why did the police believe them over me?
Domestic Violence allegations almost always involve one person’s word against another. These are frequently called he said/she said cases and they are always messy. Lots of people think that if there is no physical evidence (such as no bruising or marks) then the police won’t arrest you or you won’t get prosecuted. WRONG. Domestic Violence cases very rarely involve any physical evidence (less than 20% of our DV cases involve marks or bruising or any other physical evidence) and yet they are almost always charged and prosecuted fully.
Most jurisdictions have a mandatory arrest policy where the police will determine who they think the victim is and one person will definitely be charged. Conflicting stories will not stop someone from being charged and, while there still exists a presumption among some officers that women are the victims, our experience is that usually the first person to call 911 and talk to the police, regardless of gender, is determined to be the victim. Once the police determine who they think the victim is, nothing will change their mind.
Telling the police your side of the story will rarely result in you not being arrested and will frequently be used against you. Triple L Law PC always advises you to consult with an attorney before speaking with the police, regardless of how innocent you think you are.
