White House staff member resigns after incident with boyfriend

A 37-year-old woman from Upper Marlboro, Maryland who worked as a legislative liaison and special assistant to the president recently resigned following allegations of a violent incident involving her boyfriend, a Capital police officer.

She was charged with reckless endangerment and first and second degree assault following an incident where she allegedly stole a pistol from her boyfriend and shot at him. The bullet hit the floor and no one was injured in the incident. The argument stemmed from a discussion regarding her boyfriend and possibly the other women he was seeing. According to authorities, she used her boyfriend's service weapon.

Although a majority of domestic violence victims are females, males can also be the target of an attack. Unfortunately, even today domestic violence still rears its ugly head all too often in the United States, and many cases of domestic violence go unreported.

If you've been arrested and accused of domestic violence, it is important to have a small team at your defense. It's not uncommon for a spouse, girl or boyfriend or other family member to make a false claim against someone in an effort to tarnish their reputation. This happens a lot in child custody battles. But having a strong criminal defense team at your side can do wonders in protecting your freedoms and rights if you've been accused. Even if you are found not guilty, you do not want your reputation tarnished or a dark cloud looming over your head for the rest of your life and career.
