There are a variety of different types of families in this country. While some never seem to disagree, others argue frequently. In some instances, police officers and the family and criminal court system become involved. One man in California now faces domestic violence charges after what police describe as a 12-hour standoff.

Police say the events began at approximately 9 a.m. one morning in late May. Reports indicate that officers approached the man’s apartment in an attempt to serve him with a protective order. The man had his young son with him at the time, and the child’s mother was at work. The circumstances that resulted in the issuance of a protective order are unclear.

The man reportedly barricaded himself in the apartment with his son. Surrounding apartments were evacuated as police say they negotiated with him. Twelve hours later, the man reportedly exited the apartment with his son, who was apparently unharmed, in a stroller. He surrendered and now faces two felony charges related to domestic violence.

Many of the details surrounding this case are unclear at this time, including whether anyone was the victim of physical harm or threats. In order to obtain a conviction of the domestic violence charges filed against the man, California prosecutors will have to prove that he is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. This standard, purposely set high in order to prevent a wrongful conviction, is often difficult to meet. However, those who are facing criminal charges could benefit from having an attorney on their side who is experienced with such charges.
