Wyoming Criminal Defense and DUI

Domestic Violence – Criminal Law Lawyer – Wyoming

Domestic – Defense Attorney - Wyoming Burg SimpsonAccording to the Centers for Disease Control, nearly 38 percent of women in the United States will experience domestic violence at some point in their life. Women in Wyoming fare slightly better, where nearly 34 percent of women will be exposed to contact sexual violence, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner.

The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence defines domestic violence as “the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another.”

In 2014, according to data collected by NCADV, victims reported nearly 2,600 incidents of domestic violence to law enforcement – more than of which resulted in an arrest. Additionally:

  • More than 20 percent of Wyoming women are stalked in their lifetimes.
  • More than 10 percent of Wyoming high school students have reported being intentionally physically hurt by a dating partner in the past year.
  • Roughly half of Wyoming domestic violence homicides are committed with firearms.

Do not risk your life or liberty if you have been arrested because of an incident of domestic violence or stalking. If you need help, call our Cody, Wyoming office at 307-527-7891 or fill out our Free Case Evaluation form now.

Tragically there is more to domestic violence than physical violence. Domestic violence comes in many forms, such as:

  • Physical – This includes any physical assault, battery, and sexual assault used as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another. Physical abuse can lead to serious injury and even death.
  • Sexual – This is any sexual act, or attempt to obtain a sexual act, unwanted sexual comments or advances, or acts to traffic, or otherwise directed, against a person’s sexuality using coercion.
  • Emotional/psychological – This is classified as any a pattern of behavior that threatens, intimidates, dehumanizes or systematically undermines an individual’s self-worth self.
  • Economic – This type of abuse occurs when one partner has control over the other’s access to economic resources.
