What is DV-MRT
Domestic Violence Moral Recognition Therapy (DV-MRT) is a 6-month domestic violence class that generally meets once a week for a total of 26-sessions. The classes are designed to reduce recidivism and teach the defendant other ways of dealing with conflict. It is possible to find DV-MRT classes are that on Zoom.
Why should I register for DV-MRT?
It is possible to register and start a DV-MRT course if you have an ongoing Domestic Violence case. This may assist your attorney with negotiations in your case or mitigate the punishment that could result from a conviction of domestic violence assault.
Why should I not register for DV-MRT?
Talk to your attorney about DV-MRT registration. There are some courses and instructors that I do not recommend. These classes are generally run by law enforcement officers and not by private companies. Registering for a course run by law enforcement generally means that your law enforcement instructors may cooperate with the prosecution and possibly provide negative information to the prosecutor about you. Information such as bad attendance or a "bad attitude" can create problems in your domestic violence case.
