Familial conflict is expected in any family and is often resolved without any major relationship disruptions. However, there are an increasing number of incidents where family contention is the root cause of serious domestic conflict. In unfortunate circumstances, these serious incidents often result in the injury or death of certain family members while the perpetrator ends up behind bars.
In a recent incident in New Orleans, a man was arrested after witnesses reported that he was involved in a domestic dispute. After examining evidence and witness reports, authorities booked the man into jail on allegations of domestic abuse. Ironically, the man is a law enforcement officer with the state of Louisiana and has been for over 10 years. An attorney representing the man expressed confidence that his reputation would be remedied and he would be cleared of pending charges following a thorough investigation into the allegations. Shortly after being booked into jail on a $350 bond, the man posted bail and was released until an upcoming court date. The condition of any victims is currently unknown as authorities declined to share details about the case with the public. It was also unknown the relationship between the man and any of his victims.
If someone has been the victim of a domestic dispute or have family members who are suffering from domestic violence, he or she may benefit from the assistance of an attorney. Utilizing the professional experience of a legal representative may allow victims to focus their energy on recovering with reliable guidance from an advocate who understands the details of their case.
