So two people in a relationship are having a squabble. Maybe there was never a fight at all. Either way it’s domestic abuse charges if anyone from Jimmy, Janie or the nosy- ass next door neighbor calls the Police.

The Winning Domestic Abuse Lawyer is Oklahoma City Lawyer Criminal Defense Attorney Robert Eliot Sisson and the record proves it.
TRUE CASE FILE: I (Criminal Defense Attorney Robert Eliot Sisson) had a case years ago where the young woman’s nose was folded to the side of her very pretty face. The Police arrested my client (Her Husband) For Domestic Abuse as her nose was folded over almost to her cheek.
My client was charged with Domestic Abuse Assault And Battery.
I performed a thorough case investigation which revealed that her nose was that way since birth and I acquired a High School Graduation picture and there was the folded nose. Case Dismissed!

Some Law: Domestic Violence / Domestic Abuse is the Worst Misdemeanor Crime on the Books to be convicted of. If a person has a conviction for Domestic Violence / Domestic Abuse they are prohibited from buying /owning a firearm /gun or even ammunition.
If a person pleads guilty and gets a Deferred Sentence (Probation without Conviction) and then gets charged again with Domestic Violence / Domestic Abuse than that person will likely be charged with Felony Domestic Abuse.
There are situations where a first offense for Domestic Violence / Domestic Abuse can and usually will be charged as a Felony and that is where a bone is allegedly broken or a weapon allegedly used or the person is allegedly strangled.
In the usual case, police responding to a Domestic Violence / Domestic Abuse call are not walking in to an ongoing physical situation.
Frequently the first person to call Police is declared by Police to be the Victim whether or not the person in truth was a Victim. It’s called the first one to call rule. Sometimes Law Enforcement gets it right.
Sometimes, one person truly started “it”.
DEFENSES TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE / DOMESTIC ABUSE
It Must Never Be Forgotten that the Defense of Self-Defense Applies.
TRUE CASE FILE: I had a client charged with Breaking his Wife’s Jaw. Many Lawyers would tell themselves that this client has no hope. He Broke his Wifes Jaw!!! NOT SO!!!
The Client (her Husband) stood Six Feet Two, 250 lbs and no fat tells me he has a defense. Self defense.
I look at him and think this better be good.
He tells me he is sound asleep and the drunk angry wife jumps on top of him and starts hitting him in the head with all her might. I think maybe she is five feet zero and 90 pounds. Nope he says. She is built stout. No fat. Very feminine. Very normal.
Married (they both stopped drinking after this incident) with children and this case could really mess his and even her life up.
Knowing the value of a thorough investigation, I ask to meet her.
She was a very nice woman and exactly as my client had described her.
Now I have a problem. The DA won’t meet with or talk with the alleged Victim. She says he broke her jaw so nothing to talk about.
The following is an example of why you want to hire an experienced Criminal Defense Attorney.
Robert Eliot Sisson has been fighting and winning since September 20, 1989.
In his 30+ years of experience, just one of the many lessons learned not taught in law school is:
The DA cannot refuse a “Victim Interview”.
I asked the wife of my client to come with me to the District Attorneys Office and my clients wife/alleged victim will in real time request an in person victim interview with the assigned District Attorney. The DA reluctantly agrees that she will meet with my clients wife.
When the DA meets my clients wife she looks at her and my clients wife asks, “What would you do if I started hitting you in the head over and over as hard as I could?” The young DA said only these words: STATE WILL DISMISS. The case was dismissed.
Hire Criminal Defense Attorney Robert Eliot who has won numerous Domestic Violence / Domestic Abuse Cases!!!
