Dedham Domestic Violence FAQs

What is the procedure for a domestic violence arrest?

Law enforcement in Dedham and surrounding cities and towns usually have a policy of automatically arresting anyone accused of assaulting a family member or intimate partner. If you are arrested, you will be taken to the police station to be booked, photographed and fingerprinted. If you are not released from the station and/or do not post bail, you will be brought to court for your first appearance there, called an arraignment. At your arraignment, the judge will decide whether to set bail so you can spend the time before trial with your family.

Will a conviction stay on my record?

It will unless you are able to get it sealed or expunged. Sealing will greatly limit who can see your criminal record; expunging will eliminate the record entirely.

Will a conviction affect my career?

Your conviction will show up on background checks, which could cost you job opportunities. You could also have your professional license suspended, including a nurse’s license, a stockbroker’s license and other professional licenses.

What should I do if I have been falsely accused?
