When feeling hurt or wanting badly to get their way, some people may resort to spiteful actions. In some cases, these actions may not have drastic repercussions, but some individuals may go too far and make serious accusations against another person. For instance, if someone wants to get his or her way in a divorce, it is possible for false accusations of domestic violence to come about.
Individuals in many professions can have their careers put in jeopardy by criminal charges. Unfortunately, many people may face negative consequences from their employers before they even have the chance to defend themselves in court. In cases involving charges of domestic violence, it is not unusual for parties to lose their jobs.
