- The Accusations Against You Are False
In order to be guilty of domestic violence, it is necessary for you to have had the intent to hurt or strike someone. If you were angry and were shaking a stick at someone, but you only hit them because you tripped an fell, then your domestic violence attorney in Laguna Hills CA can argue that though you were mad, the actual injury was an accident and therefor you are not guilty of the crime.
It could be that you did strike out in anger but that you did not injury the person in question. This is still a crime but it is a less serious crime than if you had committed corporal injury on a spouse. If the marks or injuries were not the result of your actions then your domestic violence attorney in Laguna Hills CA will argue that on your behalf.
