What To Know About Domestic Violence Charges In Arkansas
No matter the origin of a domestic violence charge, you are likely to be arrested if you are accused. An investigation may disrupt your life significantly: It can cause problems at work and make it nearly impossible to see your children or family.
Penalties for domestic violence in Arkansas are also very serious, with some of the harshest punishments in the country. Often, prosecutors will try even first-time offenses as felonies, because state law is stricter and allows for it. A felony conviction on your record will stay with you for life, not to mention the serious risk of prison time.
In order to protect yourself as much as possible, you need strong representation as soon as possible. That’s what we provide at McKay Law Firm, PLLC.
