Domestic Battery/Order Of Protection
Domestic battery cases and orders of protection, along with civil- no contact and stalking orders are among the most complex cases in the criminal system. If charged with a domestic battery, you cannot receive supervision as a disposition, meaning you will have a conviction on your record forever. Orders of protection can prevent you from being hired at certain jobs, affect licensing for different professions and impact your day to day life. Multiple domestic battery charges may result in your being charged with a felony, which carries the potential for prison time. These cases are extremely serious, and must be handled properly. As the former chief of the traffic, domestic violence and misdemeanor divisions of the Lake County State's Attorney's office, Randie helped revise the domestic violence manual which is used by Lake County police departments in investigating and charging domestic battery cases. She has prosecuted and defended hundreds of these cases, so let her use her expertise and experience to help you.
