What Is Domestic Assault?
Domestic assault is a category of assault violence that takes place between partners, spouses, family members, and individuals in a relationship. The Crown Attorney in Ontario sets our specifically defined policies in the Crown Policy Manual that prosecute offences like these quite strongly. The terminology, specifically, is to prosecute these offences "with vigour". Individuals who are charged with a domestic assault are sometimes held by the police overnight for a bail hearing, however most often is the case, the accused person will be unable to have any contact with the alleged victim in these circumstances under a specific order of the court. Our experience as criminal lawyers is that domestic assault charges are not usually withdrawn unless there are circumstances which would give rise to a withdrawal. It is important to note that once a police officer charges you with a domestic assault charge, it is not the police officer nor the alleged victim who has control any longer. The decision to proceed with your charges are solely in the hands of the Crown Attorney. It is very important to retain a criminal lawyer almost immediately at the onset of your case in order to get the best possible outcome.
