False Domestic Violence Accusations Lead to Harsh Consequences

Posted by Joseph D. Lento | Feb 19, 2024 | 0 Comments

Individuals get accused of domestic violence every day in the United States. Unfortunately, many accusations are false, made out of spite, anger, and, sometimes, even boredom. In fact, in early 2024, even U.S. Representative Lauren Boebert was accused of domestic violence by her ex-husband during an argument at a restaurant in Colorado. After an initial investigation, the police dropped the charges because of a lack of evidence. However, Boebert is still feeling the resulting consequences today.

When you are falsely accused of domestic violence, it can be overwhelmingly stressful. Not only are you forced to defend yourself for actions you did not commit, but you must also face the unnecessarily harsh consequences that these accusations incur. The first step to your defense is to hire a competent and experienced criminal defense attorney. Call the Lento Law Firm Criminal Defense Team today at 888-535-3686 or schedule a consultation online.

Consequences of Baseless Domestic Violence Accusations

There are several consequences individuals falsely accused of domestic violence can face, including harm to their reputation, deteriorating mental, emotional, and physical health, depression, and anxiety. Moreover, depending on the individual's employment and residency, a domestic violence charge can force them to have to move, find a new job, or be restricted from seeing their family and friends.

For example, in the Boebert case, she and her ex-husband got into an argument at a restaurant, and he accused her of punching him in the face. Later, Jayson Boebert recanted his statement and was arrested for third-degree criminal trespass, obstruction, and disorderly conduct concerning what happened at the restaurant.

While Lauren Boebert was already under fire for behavior that led her to be kicked out of a musical in September 2023, the domestic violence accusation, despite being dropped, outshined that controversial incident immensely. After just two terms in the U.S. House, she announced that she was switching congressional districts to run for a seat on the other side of Colorado state. It was suspected that this was done to prevent losing to a Democratic challenger in the next election.
