Treasure Valley Criminal Defense Lawyer Defends Clients Against Domestic Violence Charges
Dedicated Idaho legal advocate fights for your rights and reputation
Idaho has established a dedicated domestic violence court to handle cases involving any form of partner abuse. If you are facing any type of domestic violence charge, Dowdy Law Office in Kuna, Idaho will diligently defend your rights and fight to help you avoid a conviction.
Accomplished lawyer aggressively defends against physical harm charges
Allegations of domestic violence can be taken very seriously. A conviction for such a crime can result in up to six months in jail and a $2,000 fine for a first offense, with increasing penalties for repeated offenses. In addition to time behind bars, there are several civil repercussions that can affect your reputation and way of life. For instance, you may be served with a restraining order, forbidden from returning home or lose the ability to see your children. If you’ve been accused of physically harming a household member, I want to hear your side of the story so that I can vigorously defend your rights and future against a potentially false claim. I can also help you fight against an unjust protection order.
Experienced representation for criminal harassment cases
When a household member alleges that you criminally harassed them through threatening letters, phone calls, or some other means, you could be facing serious consequences. Even though domestic violence charges in Idaho can be treated as a misdemeanor for a first offense, penalties can still include jail time and expensive fines. My firm has extensive experience helping clients deal with unfair criminal harassment charges, and I will fight for a positive outcome to your case.
Skilled counselor has a track record of results in sexual assault cases
If you’ve been arrested on charges of sexually assaulting a spouse or other family or household member, you need professional legal counsel in your corner from day one. A felony domestic violence conviction can carry penalties of up to 10 years in prison and fines up to $10,000. Further, you run the risk of a permanent blemish on your record.
Sexual assault charges can be filed for a variety of reasons, with disagreements about consent sometimes leading to false accusations. I take a non-judgmental, strategic approach to defending every sexual assault case and have a strong track record of success.
Qualified litigator protects your interests when faced with stalking charges
You may face stalking charges in Idaho if a victim alleges that you engaged in a series of acts — such as following, making phone calls or sending emails — that made them feel intimidated, harassed or fearful for their safety. Penalties for a stalking conviction include fines and up to one year in prison. However, I understand that these charges may not always hold up in court; a victim can lie about your behavior or there might be a misunderstanding about the intent of the communication. If you find yourself facing these charges, I will get to work immediately on your case and fight for your reputation and freedom during trial.
