When people think about a criminal charge like family violence or domestic violence, they usually think about the penalties they will face inside the courtroom. However, there are many penalties one can end up facing outside the courtroom.
For those who carry professional licenses such as:
- Law Enforcement
- First Responders
- Daycare Workers
- School Teachers
A Domestic Violence charge can impact your life almost immediately. Impact from an arrest can occur even before it is resolved in a courtroom. Professionals have a code of ethics as well as oversight from a governing body which resolves violations of the ethics code. Depending on your disciplinary history, your license may be in danger of suspension or even revocation.
This is especially concerning for Daycare Workers and Teachers, especially if the domestic violence or family violence arrest involves a child.
