The afternoon and I would say that there’s at least we probably have I’d say at least to cases set on each docket now a lot of folks are don’t show up for whatever reasons so but but there’s that many cases set have you say a climb in domestic violence cases over the last couple of years you know it’s it’s been about steady I haven’t really seen incline or a decline in those cases.
Think with some of these Tucson domestic violence lawyer new laws we talked about at the municipal level we’re actually gonna see a decline because as we’ll talk in a few minutes some of the now you can have your case enhanced to a felony crime that would otherwise have been a misdemeanor and once you get to the felony status then you go on to circuit court and you’re not in a Municipal Court anymore well that makes.
A lot of sense well let’s jump right into what are some of the changes are the new laws that have been enacted that specifically cover domestic violence sure I think maybe one of the things the first thing that weened to kind of lay out is what is domestic violence what makes a crime of domestic violence you have a lot of crimes that fall within domestic violence but they all start out being.
crime of like say assault the state for instance if you if you hit somebody that’s an assault charge but what makes that domestic violence is the victim and if the victim is meet certain classifications and we have a domestic violence situation and so those situations are not all of them but most of them involve a spouse a child parent we also see them in dating relationships.
The law calls that if you if you’re just dating or you’re engage din to someone you can have a domestic violence charge as well as household members if you just live in the same house with somebody it could be enhanced to domestic violence well then we’re going to talk about that and specifically the rule changes of the law changes that were enacted I for one did not realize it is that bigger problem in Montgomery but we’re gonna hear.
