Q: What happens if I am arrested for domestic violence?

A: If you’re arrested on a domestic violence charge, you will be held without a bond until you appear before a judge. At that initial appearance, if the victim is not present, the judge will order very specific conditions of your release. The specific conditions can include the requirement that you have a GPS monitor placed on you, that you not have any contact with the alleged victim, and that you not return to your home.
