Kane County & Naperville Domestic Battery Lawyers
People often have trouble accepting that domestic battery is a crime of violence. If you are convicted, your record could include a felony assault charge that will forever label you as a violent offender. Many people charged with domestic assault are surprised to learn that they face prosecution, even when the victim doesn’t want to press charges. Under Illinois law, a person arrested for assault at the scene of a domestic disturbance is subject to the decision of the State’s Attorney, not the victim.
If you are facing charges of domestic battery or any other offense related to domestic violence, talk to an attorney at the Law Offices of Kim DiGiovanni right away.
