Manhattan domestic violence lawyers Russ Kofman and Arthur Lebedin release a new article (https://www.lebedinkofman.com/manhattan-domestic-violence-lawyer/) discussing the types of domestic violence offenses in New York. The lawyers mention that domestic violence is quite different from other crimes in a way that it is abuse that takes place between family members, loved ones, or members of the same household.

“The state of New York takes allegations of domestic violence very seriously, and a conviction for domestic violence can have far-reaching and long-lasting consequences. In many cases, filing domestic violence charges automatically results in a temporary restraining order (TRO) against the defendant. The TRO, among other things, may prevent the defendant from entering the shared premises, as well as from being near the accuser and other family members,” the article from the Manhattan domestic violence lawyers says.

Lawyer Russ Kofman explains that a few acts may be considered domestic violence. These acts include domestic assault, stalking, harassment, threats of violence, verbal or physical abuse, and imprisonment or physical restraint.

Attorney Kofman adds that being convicted of domestic violence may also result in huge fees, probation, lost firearm privileges, and even years in jail or prison. Domestic violence can also be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony. If charged with a misdemeanor domestic violence, the person can face 15 years to one year in jail and fines up to $1000.

In the article, both lawyers also discuss that the court may issue a temporary protection order if the defendant is accused of a crime against a spouse, former spouse, child or parents, or member of the same household. The judge will issue a temporary order of protection after they review the case and interview the victim.

According to defense lawyer Arthur Lebedin, “A domestic violence conviction will likely result in an order of protection being filed against you, thereby preventing you from visiting your children or loved ones. This is why it is vitally important to retain skilled advocacy as soon as you are charged.”

Lastly, attorney Kofman emphasizes the importance of having a skilled lawyer when facing charges of domestic violence. An experienced lawyer may be able to help the defendant understand their rights and protect their freedom.
