Mississippi corrections worker arrested for domestic violence

Domestic violence has a broad impact on families and communities. A corrections officer in a nearby Mississippi community is facing felony charges stemming from an alleged domestic violence incident. The corrections officer was arrested and charged with aggravated domestic violence. Following a complaint, and a short time later following investigation by authorities, the man was arrested. The alleged incident remains under investigation and the man's employment status with the sheriff's office is being reviewed.

Family violence is a considerable concern for any family impacted by it and domestic assault charges are serious for any individual accused of them and facing them. Family violence impacts everyone in the family and for the accused individual, can impact their personal and professional lives in a significant way. There are legal and other resources available to all parties involved in an alleged domestic violence incident.

It is important for individuals who have been accused of domestic violence, given the potential penalties and consequences they are facing, to understand that all individuals facing criminal charges have criminal defense rights that it is important for them to be familiar with. The criminal justice system can be intimidating to those facing it for the first time or even for those with more familiarity with it which is why trained guidance negotiating the process can be helpful.

Accusations, allegations and charges of domestic violence are not to be taken lightly and families who have been impacted by family violence should be familiar with all of the resources available to them. Parties involved in an alleged domestic violence incident do not have to face it alone.
