You may think that something as seemingly innocuous as a fight between two men might be harmless, except for the bruising, or teeth knocked out. However, it could turn into a misdemeanor charge, and in some states, this criminal history could end up on your record for a lifetime. If you are arrested for assault and battery you need an experienced Criminal Defense Attorney first – as you should not speak to anyone until you have an attorney’s advice, and should certainly not plead “guilty” or “no contest” before speaking with an attorney.
Assault and battery can be anything from a misdemeanor to a felony charge. The extent to which you are charged depends on the amount of physical harm done and if the alleged perpetrator used a weapon. The variety of weapon used can also be a factor in the seriousness of the charge, and that could be anything from a stick to a gun. You can also be charged simply for assault if you have threatened someone, whether you have carried out the threat or not. You need protection, and an experienced Criminal Defense Attorney to fully strive to have a “not guilty” verdict returned. Criminal Defense Attorney Matthew T.
