Man charged with domestic assault in New Jersey

Accusations of domestic violence can be some of the hardest to prove. Cases often become a he-said, she-said situation—only the people who are actually involved know the truth. Yet, the consequences of adomestic assault charge are some of the most severe in New Jersey. Even if the charges are later dropped, they will still show up on one’s criminal record and can result in loss of employment, eviction from property or have a negative impact on proceedings in family court.

Police in Readington recently responded to a domestic disturbance call, only to have the alleged victim refuse to file a restraining order after telling the police that her boyfriend assaulted her. She also refused medical treatment for facial wounds. Her actions were not necessarily consistent with her accusations. Nevertheless, police arrested the man for allegedly hitting the woman and charged him with simple assault. There was a hole in the wall of the couple’s residence which the woman said was made by her boyfriend. Neither party was in the home when police arrived; she was found hiding in the parking lot and he was found walking down a nearby road. It is unknown who reported the domestic disturbance.
