Although they are often used together, assault and battery are not the
same thing. You can be charged with both crimes or just one depending
on the incident which allegedly occurred. The specific details of how
the crime was allegedly committed directly affect the consequences you
could be facing if you are found guilty.
If you are convicted for an assault charge, you could face the following
types of consequences:
- A significant fine
- Time in county jail
- Loss of privileges
- Permanent criminal record
It is important to understand that time is of the essence and the sooner
you take legal action, the better. For example, if you were found attacking
another individual in self defense and were arrested and charged, it may
be difficult to find witnesses who are willing to testify. A skilled and
experienced criminal defense lawyer from our team can take the time to
gather all of the necessary evidence to build a defense strategy for your case.
