Assault and battery are violent crimes

Do you understand that assault and battery are both considered to be violent crimes? Do you realize that these can be charged as either a felony or misdemeanor?

Let's put it this way: You never want to be charged with assault or battery, as this means that you will be faced with a complex legal system. On top of this, the punishment for such a conviction can be fierce, including time in prison.

In addition to a prison sentence, there are other long-term impacts of an assault or battery conviction. For example, this will go on your criminal record. As a result, you'll find it difficult to obtain or keep a job in the future.

There are many types of assault charges, including but not limited to:

-- Domestic violence

-- First-degree assault

-- Second-degree assault

-- Assault with intent to disfigure or murder

-- Aggravated assault

-- Assault with a firearm

-- Assault related to another crime, such as a sex crime or theft

It doesn't matter what type of assault or battery you're charged with, a conviction has a way of having a negative impact on your life.

At our law firm, we've successfully defended people who have been charged with both misdemeanor and felony assault.

If you find yourself in this position, you need to do three things:

-- Learn more about the act that led to your charges.

-- Understand your legal rights.

-- Become familiar with the many defense strategies you can employ to help avoid the most serious (or any) punishment.
