Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello, and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today.
It is rare that both parties get charged in a domestic abuse case.
The main reason is that if both get charged then it makes it harder to get a conviction on either of them.
He needs to be sure and 1) get pictures of the video and 2) get a lawyer ASAP.
He has all that from another person and they took pictures went arrested him, but unless someone brings up to the ADA will they do anything about it? What I said about the bruises was the she worked him over real good. I just hate to see him take all of the blame.
His attorney can certainly raise the issue but it isn't likely to do any good, unfortunately. 90% of the time the man gets charged.
However, if he decides to fight it then it does give him a good argument that this is an example of a poor investigation.
You are welcome.
