Recently, the father of septuplets in Casa Grande ("Raising Septuplets" featured on WE TV) was arrested for two counts of domestic violence and one count of resisting arrest. What is Domestic Violence? Domestic Violence is a designation given to a crime in which the defendant and victim have a marriage relationship, live under the same roof or some other familial type relationship. What if I'm Charged With Domestic Violence? In many jurisdictions, misdemeanor domestic violence offenses can be resolved by entering and successfully completing a diversion program in which the defendant successfully completes counseling and in return the charges are dismissed. Domestic Violence can be a serious offense with tough penalties. It seems like no matter what the crime, resisting arrest makes it worst. It appears that the septuplet father was in the process of being arrested for domestic violence when he allegedly resisted arrest giving the prosecutors another crime to charge even if the underlying crime was not supported by probable cause. Navigating a domestic violence offense can be difficult. Involving a trusted attorney from the start can make a big difference in the outcome.
