Rapper Fabolous facing domestic violence charges

A well-known rapper has been accused of threatening a woman with a pair of scissors and punching her in the face. The entertainer, Fabolous, who was in California on business when the alleged incident occurred, has been charged with four felony counts in what authorities are saying meets the definition of domestic violence. He is facing one count of possession of a weapon, two counts of making terroristic threats and one count of aggravated assault to a domestic violence victim.

The incident happened last March when the rapper -- whose legal name is John Jackson -- found out the alleged victim was also in the same area. He allegedly hit the woman seven times, knocking out her two front teeth and supposedly further threatened her and her father. After the alleged assault, the woman contacted her father to remove firearms from a residence she and the accused apparently shared. When the accused arrived at the residence, the woman said he did go looking for the guns which her father got rid of.

The accused left the house after allegedly again threatening the woman, her father and her brother. The woman said that the accused also said via text message that he wanted to hit her in the head with a baseball bat.  The 40-year-old entertainer, who is the star of Love & Hip Hop, turned himself in to the authorities after the alleged incident in March. 

Fighting a domestic violence charge is stressful and exhausting. Getting the help of a California criminal defense attorney with experience handling these types of charges may help those so accused with mounting the most aggressive defense possible. A lawyer will ensure he or she reviews every piece of evidence to identify inconsistencies and errors in the prosecution's case with a view toward achieving the best possible outcome.
