Domestic Violence Convictions May Have Tougher Penalties
To deal with the problem of domestic violence, many of New York’s cities and counties have dedicated resources for domestic violence crimes and established integrated domestic violence courts (IDV). This has led to more aggressive prosecution and more serious consequences for defendants. Even a simple harassment charge may be hand-picked and handled by a special prosecutor.At Larkin, Ingrassia & Tepermayster, LLP, we have had extensive experience and success with defending individuals in IDV courts and criminal courts throughout the Hudson Valley and the state of New York.
