A Defense Attorney Can Help Those Wrongly Accused of Domestic Violence
Though there have been efforts to increase awareness on the issue of false domestic violence allegations, people still tend to automatically believe the accuser in most cases. The number of persons who were charged with domestic violence but did not actually commit the crime may surprise you. Nonetheless, these people have to face the significant effects the charges have made on their lives. Victim of False Accusations Such was the case of former NBA player Dante Cunningham. A forward for the Minnesota Timberwolves, Cunningham was involved in a domestic violence case filed last year by his then-girlfriend. The woman claimed that Cunningham kicked down a locked bedroom door, pushed her against the wall, and attempted to choke her. She obtained a restraining order, which she accused Cunningham of violating three days later, causing him to get arrested again.
