Domestic Violence, Assault, and Battery Defense
Have You Been Charged with Domestic Violence, Assault or Battery?
Domestic violence is a type of assault and battery charge. In addition to serious penalties, a domestic violence conviction will have a negative impact on child custody proceedings and future job opportunities. A conviction will result in a lifetime criminal record visible to any employer who runs a background check.
Assault occurs when a person is threatened with injury or death. Unlike battery, assault does not involve physical contact. Usually, if the victim has not been touched, but only threatened, then the crime is considered to be assault.
Battery involves touching someone against their will, with an intent to harm them. If the physical contact is accidental or an act of self-defense a person should not be found guilty of battery. Since it is up to the jury to decide whether the physical contact was accidental or justifiable, it is very important to be represented by an attorney with substantial trial experience.
