Q.”I just stopped my wife from coming at me, by putting my hands up, and now I need a bondsman?!” A. “If your hands touched her neck area, you’re now looking at the new felony charge called ‘strangulation,’ and your work life is over,” warns John M. Castellano

“That’s right, the State Attorney’s Office is now charging anyone who puts their hands up around the neck of a ‘victim,’ with that new ugly felony charge of ‘#STRANGULATION,’ which connotes the most heinous of visuals, we know; and if this happens to you and you’re ever charged with this crime — regardless of whether you just grabbed your wife or girlfriend in the neck and shoulder area JUST to get her off of you — or ladies, if you did the same to your husband or boyfriend, then your likelihood of ever finding gainful employment again … after you’re done dealing with a felony PRISON case, is slim to none. ‘Strangulation?’ The last I checked, no one was hiring the likes of a Frankenstein or the #BostonStrangler.” — Ft. Lauderdale criminal defense lawyer JohnContini

“If things hadn’t gotten draconian enough, just remember the latest and greatest NEW FELONIES in this area of #DomesticViolence in #Florida … There’s the new felony that turns a simple assault or misdemeanor pushing into a full blown felony, IF the person shoved or pushed was the victim once before of the same defendant — essentially meaning, ‘two (2) strikes and you’re out’ … and you NEED to also know about this OTHER new felony called, ‘Depriving a victim of a communications device,’ which speaks to those times when you may have tried to stop your wife or husband (or girlfriend or boyfriend, or son or daughter, as the case may be) from calling 911 or the police. Just the attempt to grab the phone from the caller – even if you are NOT successful, is enough to get yourself charged with this new felony.” — #FortLauderdaleDomesticViolencelawyer John Castellano
