Domestic Violence and Crimes Involving Moral Turpitude

Moral turpitude is a difficult concept to define, but an important one to address. A crime involving moral turpitude is a crime that can be considered inherently immoral, depraved, or vile. Domestic violence is considered a crime of moral turpitude. The consequences of being convicted of this kind of crime are generally more severe than those of other crimes. For example, a lawyer convicted of a crime of moral turpitude can be disbarred, or witnesses in court can be impeached, or legal foreign residents can be deported.

Being charged with any crime of moral turpitude is very serious. Do not hesitate to seek out the advice of an experienced and dedicated San Jose criminal defense attorney from the Law Office of Daniel Jensen, P.C. We understand how challenging this time is for you and we will fight in your defense from beginning to end. Contact us at (408) 296-4100.

  • Rape
  • Homicide
  • Kidnapping
  • Car theft
  • Arson
  • Embezzlement and fraud
  • Perjury

These are only a few examples of crimes involving moral turpitude, but if you have been charged with any of these you should expect that the case against you will be prosecuted vigorously and that your character will be assailed.
