What Is Assault And Battery?Assault and battery are two separate criminal offenses that are frequently charged together. In their simplest terms, an assault is the threat, coupled with the ability, to cause injury to another, and a battery is the use of force or violence against another. Assault and/or battery can be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor, based on the degree of injury to the alleged victim of the incident. If the alleged victim was someone in your household, we can also assist you. We represent clients against domestic violence charges. It is critical that you contact a Fresno defense lawyer as soon after your arrest as possible and before answering any questions from law enforcement. Potential issues in assault and battery cases requiring exploration by an experienced defense attorney include the need for and use of self-defense by you, the accused, and false claims of threats and fear of harm by the alleged victim.
Working Hard For The Best Outcomes For Our ClientsIn some cases, the charges against you may be dropped. In other cases, the charges may be reduced. In addition, more favorable alternative sentencing may be negotiable on your behalf. Each case must be fully reviewed and evaluated to determine how to proceed in the manner that will best protect your rights. We will work hard to create the strongest defense position available given the facts of your case.
