Domestic violence is one of the ugliest crimes, because it occurs between people who are supposed to love and respect one another. Often, it can be used as a form of manipulation and control, leaving long-term scars on its victims, but unfortunately unfounded allegations of such activity can have lasting effects on the falsely accused. If you've been charged with Domestic Assault - you need to be aware that this is a serious matter that could lead not only to a fine and jail time - but could also have life long impacts on you and your freedoms. Therefore, if you were planning on represent yourself, you may want to reconsider.
