Let Me Go To Work For You

These are serious crimes of violence which may not be able to be removed from your record once a conviction or guilty plea is entered. These offenses have serious long lasting consequences which can affect a person's life including but not limited to: gun ownerhip, concealed carry, entry into armed services or law enforcement and rights of custody of your children.

So a person needs to be extremely careful about entering a guilty plea to one of these offenses, especially in a situation where there are no witnesses. If this is what it is, it's just one person's word against another.

Some things are not in doubt with these cases involving a husband and wife. When the wife calls the police, the husband or boyfriend IS GOING TO JAIL. That's the way it is whether it's an alleged assault, even where the husband is simply defending blows being struck against him by his wife. The husband is going to jail so DO NOT PLEAD GUILTY to these types of charges without speaking to an attorney who has experience in this area.
