Singer Tamar Braxton Levels Allegations of Domestic Violence Against Estranged Husband

Singer Tamar Braxton had her husband, Vincent Herbert, arrested on Christmas Day for Battery Domestic Violence. The couple is legally separated, and Braxton filed for divorce in October. The details of the incident have not been released. However, Herbert was required to post $20,000.00 bail and Braxton subsequently obtained a Temporary Protective Order (TPO) against him. An online catfight has erupted following the incident when Laura Govan claimed to be pregnant with Herbert’s baby. Braxton responded calling the pregnant woman a “whore.”

While this type of incident makes for salacious headlines, allegations of Battery Domestic Violence are no joke. In Nevada, even a first-offense Battery Domestic Violence can have life-long consequences. A conviction for Battery Domestic violence can result in up to six (6) months in jail, a $1,000.00 fine, community service requirements and between 26 and 52 weeks of counseling. In addition, a conviction or Battery Domestic Violence can result in the defendant losing his/her right to own or possess a firearm or ammunition, and can have a direct effect on child custody proceedings.

With stakes this high, it is clear why false allegations of Battery Domestic Violence can arise when couples are in conflict.

An experienced criminal defense attorney can assist you in reviewing your case, identifying the best possible defenses, and achieving the best result possible for your case.
