The Five Degrees of Domestic Assault in Minnesota
Published By:

Where domestic violence charges could previously be – and often were – prosecuted as fairly minor incidences, societal spotlighting on domestic assault and sweeping criminal justice reforms across the nation have changed the way these crimes are approached.

 

In our state, for instance, repeat assault offenders now face enhanced penalties depending on their previous crimes. This makes it more important than ever to fight back.

 

If you or someone you care about is facing domestic violence charges, and

The recent controversy surrounding Robert Kraft has a lot of people talking about prostitution charges.
