A domestic violence conviction can have serious consequences, even for a first-time offender. The state of Idaho considers domestic violence a serious problem and this often results in the aggressive pursuit of a domestic violence case even when the evidence is scant. Sometimes a domestic violence charge is used as leverage in a divorce or child custody case, or just to get even. A conviction can result in jail time, probation, and the loss of your right to possess a firearm. With so much on the line, you need a lawyer who will aggressively fight for you.
