Self-reports of drug use among high school seniors may under represent drug use among youth of that age because high school dropouts and truants are not included. These groups may have more involvement with drugs than those who stay in school.
A domestic Violence case is where one person (the “accused” or “defendant”) assaults or harasses another person (the “victim”) and the accused and victim either live together, are family members or have a dating relationship.
In these cases it is very important to call an attorney before your first court appearance. At that court appearance called the Arraignment, the judge will determine your bail and your conditions of release.
In some cases, the judge will impose a very restrictive condition of release called a protective order. The Order could have the following conditions:
• The defendant is prohibited from going to the victim’s home or work;
• The defendant is prohibited from communicating with the victim either in person, by phone, text message or e-mail;
• The defendant is prohibited from contacting the victim through a third person;
• The defendant must turn over his permit to carry a pistol and must turn over all guns to the police or a neutral party;
• The defendant will be prohibited from threatening, harassing or assaulting the victim; and
• Other conditions the court may deem appropriate
If the protective order is violated during the pendency of the trial, the defendant will be charged with an additional crime, Violation of Protective Order which is a D felony punishable by 5 years in jail. Furthermore, the victim in the case cannot have the protective order removed. Only the court that put the order in place has the ability to remove the order.
Furthermore, the victim does not have the abbility to drop the charges once the case is filed with the court. The State’s Attorney is the only person who can drop the charges once the case reaches the court system.
