Understanding Assault and Battery Charges
Assault is the threat to use force against another person, a threat that
is backed by the apparent ability to inflict serious harm, putting the
other person in fear of injury. Battery is the actual touching or striking
of another against their will or intentionally causing another serious
bodily harm. The penalties for these offenses can include years in prison,
depending on the nature of the weapon used and the extent of the harm caused.
How can we help you? After we interview you to learn everything we can
from you about what happened, we can investigate the incident to uncover
evidence and speak with witnesses. We know how to challenge any confessions
if your constitutional rights were infringed upon, and we strenuously
object to any improper evidence or testimony submitted by the state. Throughout
the process, we are ever watchful for opportunities to press the state
for dismissal or reduction of the charges.
