Bringing awareness to domestic violence at local level

When Georgia residents think of violent crime, they may think each case is pretty cut and dried. In cases of domestic violence, a community may be quick to judge the person accused. While certainly, in some cases a serious crime has been committed, there are also plenty of examples when allegations against a supposed aggressor turn out to untrue. 

Recently, students and representatives from a Georgia town decided to put together a charity walk supporting victims of domestic violence. However, the event has more than one purpose. The organizers of the event aim to bring awareness to the facts about domestic violence, and help educate the public. 

Being accused of domestic violence may be frightening for the alleged aggressor. In some situations, early reports may be one-sided. Most law enforcement agencies seem to have an "act first, act later" approach when dealing with what is reported to be a violent situation. 

All persons accused of domestic violence are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in court. In many cases, those accused may choose to seek aid from an experienced attorney. An attorney can help a client dispute the allegations, bringing forth evidence that may help prove that an accusation is exaggerated, fabricated or otherwise untrue. The burden of proof is placed squarely on the prosecution, and unless a prosecutor is able to provide convincing evidence that a crime had been committed, a person accused can look forward to a future, free of such troubles like fear of public judgment, loss of employment based solely on allegations of another person or loss of child custody stemming from an untrue report.
