Under Washington law, domestic violence is a crime and can be punished severely. Including significant fines and jail time, those convicted of domestic violence in Washington will carry a permanent criminal record that will haunt them for the rest of their life. A Tacoma domestic violence attorney knows that a criminal record makes it difficult to get loans or credit cards, apply for jobs and obtain professional licensure. Even renting an apartment can become more difficult if you have a criminal record. However, domestic violence isn’t as cut and dry as it first appears to be. Only you and your family know the whole story of what really happened, and what circumstances were involved. Even if the violence that occurred was an out of the ordinary lapse in judgement by an otherwise upstanding U.S. citizen, prosecutors will do everything in their power to make sure the court issues a guilty verdict and the maximum sentence is imposed.
