Domestic Violence in Orange County

Mr. Grupenhagen handles Domestic Violence cases in Orange County, also referred to as Domestic Battery in Orange County.

The courts are filled with cases of Domestic Violence in Orange County. Since the O.J. Simpson case, California has steadily increased the punishment for people charged with Domestic Violence. In Orange County, if the police are called out to the house someone is getting arrested. Be careful not to call the police to calm down your husband, or to help you solve some kind of dispute. You’ll embark on a lengthy painful separation, expense, and strain on the family because someone’s getting arrested.

P.C. § 273.5 defines a violation of Willful Infliction of Corporal Injury. Any person who willfully inflicts a corporal injury resulting in a traumatic condition upon a spouse, former spouse, cohabitant, former cohabitant, or the mother or father of his or her child can be charged with a felony or a misdemeanor. The felony carries up to either a year in jail, or prison for two, three, or four years, and/or a $6,000 fine!

Besides the potential jail time, and a fine, if you are convicted of Domestic Battery in Orange County, you may be required to attend 52 weeks of anger management. Held once a week, you can expect to spend an entire year with other individuals similarly situated. On top of classes, the courts routinely issue a restraining order that stays in effect for three years from the date of conviction. The restraining order may even list your children in some cases. This means you are at risk of jail if you go to visit your children without prior court approval. The ramifications of a restraining order issued by a criminal court will also severely jeopardize your attempts at getting custody of the kids if you are simultaneously going through a divorce or fighting for custody. Needless to say, you need a good attorney to help you avoid tearing apart your family.

Another kind of Domestic Battery is defined in PC § 243(e)(1). Where a battery committed against a spouse, a person with whom the defendant is cohabitating, a person who is the parent of the defendant’s child, former spouse, fiancé, or a person with whom the defendant currently has, or has previously had, a dating relationship," is punishable by up to one year in County Jail, and/or a $2,000.00 fine, anger management and a permanent restraining order. This charge is commonly brought where the injuries may be insignificant, or even self-inflicted.

Along with these horrors, anyone convicted of Domestic Violence is forbidden from owning, possessing, or using firearms for ten years. The law allows for a limited except for a peace officers, but if your job requires carrying a firearm, that’s in jeopardy without a skilled attorney fighting for you.

What do you do when the police are called for domestic violence in Orange County? Do not admit anything to the police! Everything that you say can, and will, be taken out of context and used against you. Don't try to explain what happened. The more you say, the worse it will be. Call me as soon as possible. Some people call a bail bondsman first, but if you call me first, we will start immediately at speaking to jailers to attempt to get a release without bail. As in other dealings with criminal courts, there are too many variables to give specific information about actual cases, but each case carries some hidden hope for the defendant if he knows where to look. That is what we am trained to look for. Call now for a free consultation if you know someone charged with Domestic Violence in Orange County.
