Domestic Violence Archives

Domestic violence case involving NFL star sent to prosecutors

Football fans in Florida likely know Johnny Manziel for his time with the Texas A&M Aggies and the Cleveland Browns, but the quarterback has made almost as many headlines for his off-field behavior as he has for his game-winning touchdown drives. Manziel's name featured prominently in another story not related to football on Feb. 25 when the Dallas Police Department announced that the 23-year-old signal caller's domestic assault case had been turned over to prosecutors.

Fewer still can explain what rights you have when facing criminal charges -- unless, of course, they have the right legal background.
