In Seattle, WA, domestic violence is classified as a criminal act committed by one family member or household member against another. The law has categorized the following as domestic violence crimes:
- Malicious Mischief / destruction of property
- Sexual assault
- Interfering with reporting of domestic violence
- Physical violence or threat of violence
- Domestic assault not resulting in physical injuries
- Violation of a No Contact Order/Restraining Order
An alleged victim might call the police in an effort to diffuse a situation; however, it often results in an automatic arrest. A simple accusation of a scuffle is often all the proof needed for officers to find probable cause. Domestic abuse arrests are common in King County and Seattle, WA. After the 911 call has been made, police officers usually have no option but to arrest the accused due to mandatory arrest laws. This is where the domestic violence attorneys at Horwath Law can be of help.
