For civilians, a police visit to your home after a complaint of domestic violence means someone is going to jail. A domestic abuse conviction carries serious consequences for your right to own a firearm, opportunity to secure housing and employment, access to your children and possible deportation for those of uncertain immigration status.
What A Domestic Violence Charge Means For Members Of The Military
For military members in Colorado — at bases and installations such as Peterson Air Force Base, Fort Carson, Air Force Academy and Schriever Air Force Base — a domestic violence conviction is essentially a “career-ender.” In addition to possible incarceration and heavy fines, your military rank and security clearance would be out the window.
Establish Your Defense Early To Protect Your Rights
Regardless of your role in our society, private individual or service person, if you feel you have been falsely accused of any form of domestic violence — physical, verbal, financial, spousal or child abuse — you have rights that must be protected.
Attorney David W. Foley is just the defense attorney to aggressively protect you. He literally wrote the book on domestic violence in the 4th Judicial District Attorney’s office. He created and implemented the training program for prosecutors, which means he knows their tactics and strategies.
