A domestic violence charge does not necessarily mean conviction

Judges in New York and throughout the nation hear cases all the time that result in acquittals. In fact, some cases are dismissed before ever going to trial due to lack of evidence or because a particular defendant's rights were violated in the arrest process. There are also situations were false accusations are made, such as in incidents of alleged domestic violence.

Drug charges may be diverted into the drug court program

Drug courts are a promising way to combat the prior insidious practice of incarcerating non-violent drug offenders who have an addiction problem.
