New representation granted for Michigan man accused of domestic violence

A Michigan man who is accused of a number of counts including domestic violence is getting a new lawyer. According to reports, the relationship between the man and his previous lawyer deteriorated so completely that the accused man requested the lawyer be removed from his case.

Michigan law defines domestic violence as sexual, physical, emotional, psychological or economic abusive behavior between spouses, couples and residents in the same household. It can take many forms, but in this case the man is being accused of holding his girlfriend against her will amongst other charges.

It started with an argument that escalated quite quickly. He was fighting with his girlfriend when the man allegedly destroyed her phones and computers. As soon as he left her apartment, she called the police and they responded. After the police left, the man returned and forced his girlfriend into his car. They drove around Ann Arbor for over an hour before he agreed to drop her off back near her apartment.

His case has now been delayed until Dec. 15, 2011 because his request for a new lawyer was granted by the courts. People accused of domestic violence stand to lose a lot. If the relationship between the lawyer and client is beyond repair, a change in representation may result in a more effective defense against these allegations.

Domestic violence charges never go away by themselves. It is important to have effective representation who understands how serious the charges and implications can be. They may be able to connect the accused with an experienced counselor or psychologist to address issues that may have contributed to the offense.
