What To Do When Arrested For A Seminole County Domestic Violence Charge

When someone is arrested for domestic\nviolence in Seminole County it can be confusing. The first concern is getting\nyour loved one out of jail. Getting out of jail when arrested for domestic\nviolence is a little different than other cases. The charge starts out with no\nbond. Once the accused goes to first appearance they will get a bond. On a\nmisdemeanor the bond is usually $500. On felonies the bond can be much higher.\nThis can be done by posting a cash bond or using a Seminole\nCounty domestic violence bail bondsman. A cash bond ties up more money but that money will be\napplied toward the case or returned after the clerk takes a small processing\nfee. The bail bondsman is less money but the premium will not be returned. Many\ncases in Seminole County can start off with GPS and no contact order. This can\nbe avoided in some cases if the facts are weak or the alleged victim wants\ncontact.
After getting out of jail\nyou have two broad categories of domestic violence cases. The alleged victim is\nout to get the accused and wants to aggressively pursue the case. This is\ncommon when a divorce is pending. This can also result in an injunction being\nfiled. The other type of domestic violence case is when the police are called\nbut the alleged victim does not want criminal charges. These cases are\ntypically only the domestic violence case. You need to talk to a Seminole\nCounty domestic violence attorney in both of these situations. If the alleged\nvictim does not want to go forward you are typically not going to need\nrepresentation in a divorce or injunction case.
The criminal case can be\nresolved quickly or can drag on for months. The charges can be simple\nmisdemeanor domestic violence or can be enhanced to a felony if serious injury\noccurs, the alleged victim is pregnant, strangulation is alleged, a deadly\nweapon is used or the accused has a prior battery on their record. If the\nalleged victim does not want to go forward the prosecutor will have problems\nwith the case. They are more likely to take the steps to get around the\nproblems (putting the victim in jail to force testimony) on felony cases or\nrepeat offenders.

It is unheard of that a misdemeanor will permanently revoke a constitutional right. A domestic violence charge can revoke your right to bear arms for life. That means a plea to a DV charge will make it illegal for you to possess a firearm for life.

Most of the charges in Florida that cannot be sealed are serious felonies. The two exceptions are domestic violence and stalking. These are the only misdemeanors that you cannot seal if adjudication is withheld. That means a plea to a DV charge will be on your record for life. DUI also cannot be sealed but for a different reason. The statute requires an adjudication of guilt.
