Gender stereotypes in domestic violence cases

The prevailing societal attitude toward domestic violence is that abuse occurs on a strictly male-on-female basis. However, research reported by FindLaw suggests that the incidence of women committing domestic violence against men is nearly equal to the incidence of men committing violence against a female domestic partner. At the law offices of John M. Kucera, Attorney at Law, we affirm that if you are facing a charge of domestic violence, you have the right to a legal defense, regardless of your gender.

The pressure on police to arrest someone when responding to a domestic violence call may lead to law enforcement making an arrest on the basis of a gender stereotype rather than assessing the evidence objectively. The fear of being doubly victimized due to an erroneous arrest on a domestic violence charge prevents many male victims of domestic violence from reporting the abuse that they endure to the authorities.

Whether you are male or female, the consequences of a domestic violence conviction can be devastating and follow you around for the rest of your life. In addition to jail time, you may be facing the prospect of losing the right to bear a firearm or access to your home if your significant other files protective orders against you. Bail amounts for those accused of domestic violence are also extremely high due to California's zero-tolerance attitude.

In the United States, everyone accused of a crime is innocent until proven guilty; those accused of domestic violence are no exception. More information about this topic is available on our website.
