Tremaine Neverson, popularly known as Trey Songz, claims that a domestic violence charge against him is false. Los Angeles police officers arrested the singer following a month-long investigation. An acquaintance of the singer said he attacked her at a party in February.
The singer is on probation following a 2017 Michigan conviction for aggravated assault on a police officer. Shortly after his most recent arrest, he posted a $50,000 bond. On his Twitter account, the singer professed his innocence. In a tweet, he said that “personal gain” is motivating his accuser. He also said he would refrain from further comment on the matter.
The woman sought and received a temporary restraining order against Neverson. Neverson denies the charges.

Domestic abuse cases can bring a lot of hardship to your home and family relationships. In many cases, a spouse or partner doesn’t really want to press charges. Unfortunately, the police or prosecutors may pressure them into doing so.
An experienced criminal defense attorney will help you develop an effective defense strategy that protects both you and your family.
