Wisconsin Restraining Orders And Domestic Abuse Injunctions
In the state of Wisconsin, allegations of domestic violence are taken very seriously by state prosecutors and law enforcement officials. These cases are aggressively prosecuted and can carry significant penalties for those who are convicted. Unfortunately, these allegations can often stem out of arguments that get out of hand and can be fabricated or embellished based upon the situation.
At the law firm of Kohn & Smith, we defend men and women who have been accused of domestic violence and charged with disorderly conduct, battery or other related offenses. Domestic violence charges can be pursued even if victims decline to press charges. Wisconsin law requires police officers to arrest someone once they are called to a domestic violence scene, and thus, many innocent people may face charges that could impact the rest of their lives.
