Assault & Battery Charges
Assault and battery are two separate offenses. Assault happens when a person threatens to inflict injury on another person or displays force that causes the victim to fear bodily harm. Battery is using force to harm another person. Depending on the circumstances, battery can either result in a misdemeanor or felony charge.
Strong Defense for Your Situation
The legal penalties for a conviction depend on the specifics of the case and whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or felony. However, any criminal conviction can tarnish your reputation and affect your immigration status. Therefore, it is important to contact a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible to fight the charges and defend your rights.
Some possible defenses for these charges may include:
- Acting in self-defense
- Protecting another from harm
- Wrongful accusation
- A physical limitation prevents you from inflicting force or causing harm
Our Redwood City assault and battery attorney will evaluate your case and the evidence against you to determine the most effective defense strategy for your situation. We will guide you through every phase of the legal process, from advising you regarding plea bargains to building a solid defense and protecting your rights in legal proceedings.
