While many people may not be aware of how the arrest process works when discussing Domestic Violence. The mandatory arrest policy pertains to when Domestic Violence is reported for example by a neighbor. In this case, if a neighbor was to call and say you and your significant another screaming at each other the police have to arrest one of you. While in many cases this can be beneficial to subduing the situation often the police make mistakes. While the police intend to the more culpable party, this is often the source of their error. The issue with Domestic Violence cases is that the alleged victim cannot just drop the charges like they could in a different type of case. Because of the inability to drop the charges if you have been arrested for any domestic violence crime, you should contact a Boston Domestic Violence Lawyer immediately.
