Deputy charged with domestic battery

| Mar 21, 2018 | Criminal Defense

Domestic assault charges are both sensitive and serious charges which is why it is important to understand the legal resources available to parties involved in a domestic violence situation. Recently, a Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Deputy was arrested and relieved of duty without pay following domestic assault allegations. The deputy was accused of choking and beating her spouse, as well as holding a gun to her wife’s head.

The 29-year old deputy was arrested after her spouse alleged multiple incidents of abuse dating back several months. The deputy was charged with a felony count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and was also charged with two misdemeanor counts of domestic battery by strangulation and domestic violence battery. According to authorities, the deputy’s wife suffered multiple injuries. The deputy had been with the sheriff’s office for eight years.

Domestic violence is a serious concern for any family. Domestic violence charges can have an impact on the accused individual’s job, family life and even housing situation. As a result, it is important for all parties involved when domestic violence has been alleged to understand the legal options and resources available to them. Legal options and resources are available to those experiencing domestic violence as well as those who have been accused of domestic violence.

The criminal justice process provides help for accused individuals in all circumstances, including for those accused of domestic violence. Domestic violence accusations and charges should always be taken seriously which is why understanding the legal resources available to help can be essential for the parties involved.
