In Arthur L. Pressman Law Blog, Domestic Violence


If a person calls 911 making a allegation of abuse, is that sufficient in a criminal case if there is no wounds or marks on the person when the police arrive? Can the person bring up something like attempted assault to make a case go to trial based on the 911 call if the other party is arrested?


I have advised clients that the 911 call may be used but you would need some corroborating evidence of a physical injury, and that the person allegedly injured is in fact the complainant.
