More Than Four Decades Of Experience In Your Corner
There’s often more than one side to charges of assault and battery. A bar fight started by someone else where you tried to defend yourself could result in you being charged. Pointing a weapon at someone else, no matter the context, could be considered aggravated assault. Misunderstandings at home could result in accusations of domestic battery. Even road rage incidents where it is unclear what happened or who was at fault could result in assault charges.
One Action Can Have Harsh Criminal Penalties
It’s easy to underestimate the consequences of an arrest for a bar fight or road rage incident. What initially may have seemed like a harmless scuffle could result in serious jail time. Aggravated assault can be charged as a felony and can bring along with it the same consequences as any other felony conviction. Prison time, fines and payment of restitution for property damage or other expenses are not out of the question.
