Rhode Island law allows for the warrantless arrest powers by the police for anyone suspected of domestic violence. If charged under the Rhode Island Domestic Violence Act, you will be facing criminal charges along with a no contact order. A domestic violence charge often results in being removed from your home, losing temporary visitation with your children and financial repercussions. Even if the alleged victim filing the complaint recants the statement or decides not to press charges, most often the prosecutor will continue to zealously prosecute.
It is critical that someone charged with a domestic assault retain aggressive, legal representation as soon as possible. This will allow our team of experienced criminal attorneys the opportunity to investigate the facts of your case and explore all possible options. Often times the aggressive representation provided by our experienced criminal attorneys results in the dismissal of charges or a reduced sentence.
