There are a lot of domestic violence cases filed in the San Fernando Valley. Unfortunately, when the police get a call and come out to a scene, home or apartment and they see someone is injured, they’re going to make an arrest.
The police policy right now, LAPD and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is if someone has been injured in any way in a domestic violence disturbance and they can determine who the aggressor was and who caused the injuries, they are leaving that home with an arrest.
Political Pressure to Make Domestic Violence Arrest
They will not leave the parties there at the home and wish them the best of luck. The problem is, they’ve got this policy because of a lot of political pressure from way back in the 1990s.
This was related to situations where the police were not arresting the aggressor — not arresting anybody — and then more serious events were occurring.
The bottom line is the police department does not want to be in a position where they’re letting somebody go — not making an arrest — and something worse happens down the line.
I can tell you right now, when it comes to domestic violence cases in the San Fernando Valley, judges and prosecutors feel the same way. They don’t want to be the one holding the ball.
In other words, they don’t want to be the one who didn’t act, who didn’t punish, who didn’t prosecute somebody who is involved in domestic violence-related activity.
Negotiating Domestic Violence Charges with Prosecutor
So, if you or a loved on is charged with a domestic violence case in one of the San Fernando Valley courts, pick up the phone. Make the call. Ask to speak to Ron Hedding.
I have literally handled thousands of domestic violence cases in a 26-year career working as a defense attorney, working as a prosecutor and working for a Superior Court judge in the early 1990s.
I know what it takes to win these cases. I know what it takes to negotiate these cases if that is necessary, and I know how to protect your family and your rights.
