Long Beach Restraining Orders
Through the use of injunctions called restraining orders, California law
allows its judges to restrain defendants who've engaged in specific
conduct associated with
violent crimes. They can also be administered when a violent crime threat has been uttered.
There are a variety of restraining orders in existence, which is why we
are prepared to help defendants challenge those related to violent criminal
actions. Violations of stay orders of Domestic Violence Restraining Orders
(DVRO) can be heavily prosecuted under
Penal Code §§ 136.
Penal Code §§ 136.1 - 136.2
1 - 136.2. A violation can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony and a conviction
can contain penalties such as jail time or imprisonment.
Defenses Tactics Used by Long Beach Criminal Attorneys
Many restraining orders have been motivated by reasons other than actual
fear of the individual who has been restrained. Through thorough investigation,
we can help determine what the true reason for the restraining order was
and why it was placed. Many of the actual causes include jealousy, intimidation,
spite, revenge or child custody issues. No matter what the situation,
one of our knowledgeable

If you have found yourself facing a restraining order which can greatly
limit your mobility and freedom, it is important to seek defense rather

is important to have an experienced attorney on your team. At the Law
