Domestic Violence in Los Angeles

By Law Offices of David Diamond  Sep. 26, 2011 9:20a

According to the Los Angeles Police Department, domestic violence is a major problem in the Los Angeles area. In the state of California, it is a crime to threaten, beat, sexually assault or otherwise harm someone, even if that person is your spouse. Domestic violence does not only apply to women, though they are the main victims of this type of abuse. Unfortunately, this pattern of behavior is repetitive. Additionally, many who experience domestic violence themselves when younger often repeat the same actions when they become adults.

False Accusations of Domestic Violence

In the heat of an argument between two upset spouses or partners, accusations can be made that a partner is guilty of domestic violence when the allegation is entirely false. The police are called and they are bound by their duty to take action resulting in innocent individuals being arrested and put in jail. In any domestic violence charge, one should seek legal help.
