Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault

Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault

Unfortunately, domestic violence and sexual assault incidences are found throughout our society. Women, men and children can be the victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. The results of these crimes are damaging to individuals, families and communities. The impact of spousal abuse and child endangerment allegations within families eventually lead to divorce. That is why it is important to realize that domestic abuse charges are very serious and require a very serious criminal defense lawyer.

At Missimer Law, S.C., our attorneys have extensive criminal defense and family law backgrounds that offer an advantage to our clients. Contact our skilled South Wisconsin attorneys today. We offer a free initial phone consultation.

Domestic violence charges may range in severity, but a conviction of any domestic abuse allegation may have detrimental, life-changing effects beyond a jail sentence. For example, generally if you are convicted of a domestic abuse offense, you cannot own a gun.

Attorney Karyn T. Missimer aggressively defends clients facing charges for the following:

  • Disorderly conduct
  • Domestic violence
  • Domestic abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Domestic battery
  • Sexual harassment
  • Violation of a protection order
  • Rape
  • Aggravated harassment
  • Child abuse
  • Other domestic charges

Alternatives to Prosecution

When zealously defending a client, we investigate the prosecutor’s factual evidence.  Sometimes, allegations are made without enough evidence to support the charges.  We utilize both our criminal and family law experience in developing defense theories for domestic violence cases.  We work to prove the allegations arose simply from a family dispute and have no merit.  We creatively make the case a civil family matter instead of a criminal matter.  This process enables alternatives, such as counseling or temporary restraining orders, which do not involve criminal penalties.  Additionally, we strive to show useful information to prove the abuse did not occur.
