Being accused of domestic violence in the state of Utah is a serious charge and even if you are innocent it should be taken seriously. Domestic violence is defined as any criminal offense involving violence, physical harm, the threat of violence or physical harm committed by one cohabitant against another. Domestic violence in the presence of children has a higher penalty in the eyes of the law. If the police are called in on a domestic violence charge someone will usually be arrested and charged.
Laws that are meant to protect the domestic violence victims often end up victimizing innocent people that are wrongfully accused of committing domestic violence crimes. District attorneys will frequently pursue a case of spousal abuse even after the alleged domestic violence victim admits to exaggerating the claims or to lying because the district attorney believes the victim is changing their story to protect their abuser so they won’t spend time in prison or acquire a criminal record.
