Domestic Violence

Because of the complex nature of families, domestic violence cases are unique. In many cases, the only evidence is testimony from a victim and a defendant who believe very different versions of the same event. In addition, under 725 ILCS 5/115-7.4, evidence of the defendant's prior domestic violence offenses is admissible even though that evidence would be inadmissible in other criminal cases.

Domestic violence cases may also result in an order of protection being entered. Orders of protection may prohibit a person from contacting his family or living in his house. In addition, if someone violates an order of protection, they may be charged additionally for violating the order, such as a no contact order, even if the protected person initiated the contact.
