New Jersey man faces serious charges after wife's allegations

Domestic violence is often a very touchy subject, as it is usually emotion-driven and hits close to home. Most New Jersey residents can relate that even the most loving relationship has those moments where the gloves come off, so to speak, and an angry, emotional fight breaks out. Oftentimes, it seems, we fight the hardest with those to whom we are closest.

Unfortunately, in the heat of the moment, a person may do something they regret. That doesn't only refer to the person who may do the violent act. It also refers to the person who falsely accuses their partner of violence as a way to get back at them. Although anyone can agree that true domestic violence cases are horrible, most people can understand that being falsely accused of a domestic violence act can be just as damaging.

A recent accusation by a New Jersey woman led to her husband facing very serious charges. The woman reportedly claimed her 38-year-old husband threatened her life in the middle of an argument. She claims he got a kitchen knife and held it near her throat.

Police arrived on scene after a domestic violence report came from a neighbor. The wife's accusation landed the man in jail. He faces charges of aggravated assault, possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose, criminal mischief and terroristic threats.

These types of charges can lead to serious consequences, making it especially important to seek professional legal help in order to make sure a spur-of-the-moment fight doesn't lead to large fines or prison time.
